Future research at CIMA

MRes students tell us about the future research that is being undertaken at CIMA.

CIMA host regular meetings where members from Sheffield, Liverpool and Newcastle can get together and listen to the latest research. At these meetings, students on the Musculoskeletal Ageing Master of Research course (MRes) and PhD candidates have the opportunity to present their research projects.

We spoke to PhD candidates (many of whom are MRes graduates) Rebecca Brown, Simon Bowles, Alvaro Martinez Guimera and Juliette Norman to find out about some of the research that is being undertaken at CIMA.

Musculoskeletal Ageing MRes

With dramatically ageing populations worldwide, Musculoskeletal Ageing is fast becoming one of the key global public health challenges of the future, and researchers and clinicians trained in this area are consequently highly sought after.

If this is a subject that interests you, you may wish to consider our unique one-year research masters programme in Musculoskeletal Ageing. The course focuses on understanding why our bones, joints, ligaments and muscles function less well as we age, and how age-related decline of the musculoskeletal tissues and age-related clinical disorders (such as Osteoporosis, Arthritis and Sarcopenia) can be prevented and treated. You can find out more on our website.
