  A multi-modal approach to deep phenotyping frailty
  Prof P Greenhaff, Prof J Gladman, Dr S Francis
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Frailty is a significant challenge to ageing individuals, of central importance to well-being and a widely accepted public health problem.
  From motor cortex to muscle: Novel interventions to address the discordant relationship between age-related declines of muscle size and strength
  Dr M Piasecki, Dr S Chiou, Dr B Phillips
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Background. Age-related loss of muscle strength is often explained by the concomitant reduction in muscle mass, however the former appears to decline more rapidly than the latter and this discordant relationship is poorly described, and often entirely overlooked.
  To determine the effect of surgical induced systemic inflammation on immobilisation induced declines in muscle protein synthesis and immune cell function
  Dr M Brook, Prof P Greenhaff, Prof P Atherton, Prof D Lobo
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Immobilisation and inflammation are independently associated with significant muscle atrophy and when simultaneously present, result in catastrophic muscle mass loss that is associated with increased mortality.
  The Vitamin D receptor and musculoskeletal ageing: a multi-modal approach.
  Prof P Atherton, Prof M Hewison, Dr B Phillips, Dr D Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. Vitamin D deficiency is highly-prevalent and has been linked - mainly through population epidemiology - to musculoskeletal (MSK) decline in both ageing, and age-related diseases.
  Mechanisms of neuronal protection in diabetic neuropathy.
  Dr L Donaldson
Applications accepted all year round
Sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to damage. This is now most commonly found in diabetes mellitus where hyperglycaemia results in the production of several factors (e.g.
