Project detail:

3D bioengineered skeletal muscle models can be used as experimental test beds, with published work recreating exercise, injury and regeneration. Using bioengineered tissues to model these conditions can provide a high-throughput platform from which potential new therapies or interventions can be developed, without the requirement to utilise animals in the study, allowing new understanding of human biology.

Specifically, this 3-year project will model the mechanisms of skeletal muscle injury and regeneration, employing complex multi-cellular bioengineered models to better understand how musculoskeletal injury occurs, and to develop new approaches to prevent, minimise and overcome the problems associated with trauma. The project will work alongside a team of researchers at Loughborough University, as well as colleagues from the University of Nottingham, and in collaboration with the UK military (DSTL) to deliver on a ~£1M project funded by the NC3Rs.

Entry requirements:

Potential applicants should have at least a 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in sport and exercise science, human physiology, biochemistry or a related subject. A relevant Master’s degree and/or experience in one or more of the above areas will be an advantage.

English language requirements:

Applicants must meet the minimum English language requirements. Further details are available on the International website (http://www.lboro.ac.uk/international/applicants/english/).

Funding information:

The studentship is for 3 years and provides a tax-free stipend of £16,062 per annum for the duration of the studentship plus tuition fees at the UK rate. International students may apply however the total value of the studentship will cover the International Tuition Fee Only.
