Application for Brighton And Sussex Medical School PhD Scholarships 2022 is ongoing!
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and is the single most common cause of disability in older adults. Age is a major risk factor for OA because of cumulative exposure to risk factors and age-related changes in joint structures.
There are currently no treatments for OA; thus, there is an urgent need for new therapies to slow the progression of the disease and improve patient outcomes.
The aim of this project is to develop a new therapeutic strategy for OA using our novel drug-delivery system to target proteins to joints affected by OA to regulate bone and cartilage homeostasis.
