  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining senolytic treatment with exercise to prevent the development of sarcopenia
  Dr S Miwa, Prof A McArdle, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Muscle loss with ageing (sarcopenia) is a major contributor to frailty and loss of independency in older people. Exercise intervention can improve muscle function, but is not able to prevent age-associated muscle loss.
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
