  Influence of a dietary supplement on blood and muscle oxidative stress biomarkers, skeletal muscle respiration and exercise performance in healthy adults
  Dr S Bailey, Dr NC Bishop, Dr N Martin
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020
This project will assess the efficacy of a dietary supplement to alter endogenous antioxidant systems, oxidative stress biomarkers and cellular respiration in human primary myoblasts and skeletal muscle sampled from humans undergoing dietary supplementation.
  Neural mechanisms of memory formation, consolidation and recall
  Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Understanding how the firing of neurons underlies memory functions is one of the most important and challenging goals in neuroscience.
  Understanding the role of serotonergic systems in motor control
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Serotonin is a key modulator of locomotor activity in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates. A wide range pharmacological and lesion studies have provided important information about the role of serotonergic systems in modulation of motor output.
  A Structured Health Intervention For Truckers - The SHIFT Study
  Dr S Clemes, Dr J King
Applications accepted all year round
Reference. SSEHS/SAC. UK/EU Fee band. TBC. International Fee band. £21,100. Full Time Duration. 3 years. Part Time Duration. 6 years.
  PhD Studentship: Investigating perceived exertion, work capacity, performance and training load during simulated cycling
  Dr R Ferguson, Dr IM Taylor
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
Application details. Reference number. SSEHS/IT/RF. Start date of studentship. 1 July. Closing date for applications. Monday 22 April 2019.
  Pressure-Related Skin Injury: Environmental Factors and Design Solutions
  Dr A Lloyd
Applications accepted all year round
The Environmental Ergonomics Research Centre is interested in how a mechanistic understanding of Environmental Physiology and Medicine can be used to improve human performance and health through translational research.
  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
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.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  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
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.
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
