Course content

The MRes in Musculoskeletal Ageing has been established by leading international researchers and clinicians within the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and Newcastle as part of our MRC/Arthritis Research UK funded Centre for Integrated Research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) initiative (cimauk.org). CIMA researchers investigate 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 and arthritis) can be ameliorated or prevented. The MRes in Musculoskeletal Ageing provides a unique opportunity for the study of the musculoskeletal system and ageing from an integrated perspective, providing students with access to state-of-the-art resources and facilities from across the three CIMA partner sites, with teaching and supervision delivered by leading researchers and clinical practitioners.
