  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture (SLUF2019)
  Dr S Li, Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  A population-based computational modelling framework for prognosis of osteoporosis (SL5UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Localised loss of bone at sites of structural importance can increase risk of osteoporotic fracture, whilst changes in the bone underlying articular cartilage (subchondral bone) such as bone marrow lesions precede osteoarthritic change.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb (SL2UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
