  Applying AI to quantifying gait and joint loading in a mouse model for knee osteoarthritis using biplanar X-Ray videography, machine learning and force recordings
  Dr K D'Aout, Dr Y Zheng, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease leading to impaired function and changes in gait. Several mouse models for OA exist, but exactly how gait and joint function is affected by the disease in these models is unknown.
  Cathepsin Z as a novel potential biomarker for osteoporosis
  Dr D Barraclough, Prof L Ranganath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr. Dong Barraclough, Professor Lakshminarayan Ranganath and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Contribution of mechanical action to the initiation and progression of keratoconus
  Dr B Geraghty, Mr V Romano, Dr H Levis
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Keratoconus (KC) is the most prevalent form of idiopathic corneal ectasia and is characterized by progressive thinning and conical protrusion of the cornea.
  Developing Artificial Intelligence Tools for the Identification of Sleep Apnoea
  Dr Y Zheng, Dr S Craig, Prof GYH Lip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) occurs due to the repetitive closure of the pharynx during sleep, leading to sleep fragmentation and, often, daytime somnolence.
  Developing co-culture systems to enable the modelling of interactions between cells of the synovial joint
  Dr S Tew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synovial joints such as the knees and hips can be considered as multi tissue organs and crosstalk between the tissue types contributes strongly to the maintenance of their effective mechanical function.
  Development of nanomedicines for the treatment of eye diseases
  Dr VR Kearns, Dr T McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of this project is to develop new ways to deliver drugs to the back of the eye. Diseases involving the back of the eye can lead to sight loss, significantly reducing quality of life and economic opportunities of those affected.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
  Diabetic osteoarthritis : Investigating its causes and discovering interventions using tissue engineered human cartilage
  Dr JR Henstock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

OVERVIEW. People with diabetes have more than twice the risk of developing osteoarthritis than the general population.
  Endocytosis in joint health and disease
  Dr K Yamamoto, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent age-related joint disorder that causes pain and disability. Over 8 million people suffer from OA in the UK alone, but there are no disease-modifying drugs available.
