Investigation of inflammatory joint milieu; a focus on immune-multipotent stem cells interactions.

  • School: School of Science and Technology
  • Study mode(s): Full-time
  • Starting: 2021
  • Funding: UK student / EU student (non-UK) / International student (non-EU) / Self-funded

Overview

Inflammation of the joints involves bone and cartilage damage. Different immune cells and stem cells contribute to this inflammatory milieu; however, more investigations are needed to understand the cross-talk between these cells. This project will utilise high-quality research methods to create models of inflammatory joints and use molecular and biological investigatory assays. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of immune stem interactions will potentially help to improve therapies of inflammatory joints.
