  Heat adaptation in older/elderly individuals
  Dr O Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst traditionally heat adaptation has been a priority for athletes and occupational workers ahead of exposure to hot/hot-humid environments, forecast increases in the frequency and intensity of heat waves as a result of climate change means the general public is likely to be exposed to extreme environments as part of their daily life.
  The role of functional foods in modulating the adaptive response to training (Ref: SF20/SER/HOWATSON)
  Prof G Howatson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing body of evidence to suggest that the use of bioactive foods can be beneficial in the management of post-exercise declines in muscle function.
  Computer games to support arm rehabilitation after stroke
  Dr K Thomson, Dr D Knox, Prof F van Wijck
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19012. Stroke is one of the most common causes of disability across the world. Up to 80% of acute stroke patients experience loss of arm function, including loss of strength, coordination and manual dexterity, which can make daily activities such as self-care and food preparation difficult.
  Localised muscular fatigue in male and female distance runners
  Dr N Swann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The significance of gait imperfections can be easily contemplated in competitive athletic pursuits where optimised technique can increase chances of success…
  The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance
  Dr O Spendiff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance.
  Therapeutic effects of low-level (infra-red) light on muscle function in health and disease (Ref:SF20/SER/WILKINSON)
  Dr M Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many disease states are characterised by low exercise tolerance and low daily activity levels, secondary to central and/or peripheral oxygen transport and utilization limitations.
  13 PhDs within the MSCA-ITN-ETN “Precision medicine for musculoskeletal regeneration, prosthetics, and active ageing - PREMUROSA”

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ultimate goal of the ITN PREMUROSA project is to train a new generation of scientists with an integrated vision of the whole value chain in musculo-skeletal regeneration technologies and able to boost the necessary innovations to achieve precision principles in developing innovative devices and optimized clinical applications.
