Showing 1 to 9 of 9
  Developing co-culture systems to enable the modelling of interactions between cells of the synovial joint
  Dr S Tew
Applications accepted all year round
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 treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Understanding basic biological mechanisms and the development of targeted therapies
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD proposal is aimed at understanding some of the fundamental mechanism(s) that control extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and to develop new technologies and therapeutic based on changes in fibroblast gene expression profiling and surface antibodies during the development of connective tissue fibrosis.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  Investigating the role of a novel centrosomal protein TEX12 in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.
  Translating discovery science: DUBs that regulate centrosome clustering, an Achilles’ heel of cancer
  Prof J Coulson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project is supervised by Prof Judy Coulson, together with Prof Ian Prior (signalling expertise) and Dr Mark Morgan (breast cancer biology expertise)…
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Determining how mRNA turnover and translation contributes towards age-associated joint diseases
  Dr S Tew, Dr J Aspden, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
As our population ages it there is a significant increase in the incidence of chronic musculoskeletal diseases such as osteoarthritis.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Role of GPNMB in susceptibility to influenza virus infection: friend or foe?
  Dr J Coombes, Prof J Stewart
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The burden of influenza infection lies disproportionately with over-65s, who may develop serious complications and even die of infection.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C Eyers
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
