  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of collagen VI in the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using combined imaging approaches including Cryo-EM
  Prof C Baldock, Prof G Cossu, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collagen VI is a unique member of the collagen superfamily which has a short collagenous region but arrays of globular domains and assembles to form beaded microfibrils.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  The role of integrins in muscle stem cell function (MAYERU20DTP)
  Prof U Mayer, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Men and women lose 50% of their skeletal muscle mass in later life through a process called age-related sarcopenia, characterised by a combined loss of muscle mass, endurance and strength.
  Using a novel 3D co-culture model to define metabolic flux maps of different cancer cell types in response to physical activity
  Dr M Morris, Dr A Islam, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During exercise, and in the presence of sufficient oxygen, glucose is metabolised by muscle cells to produce pyruvate, a metabolic intermediate which is fed into the Kreb’s cycle in the mitochondria to produce large amounts of energy.

PhD Type

The research group for vegetative optogenetics is seeking a highly motivated. PhD student (f/m/d). 3-year doctoral programme, part-time 65 % | salary according to TV-L.
  Sex differences of ultra-endurance running: Profiling of female ultra-runners
  Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultra-endurance running has become increasingly popular, both in amateur and recreational athletes, with an exponential increase in the number of ultra-marathon finishers between 1998 and 2011 (Cejka et al., 2013; Hoffman & Krishnan 2013;).
