Masters In Philosophy - One Year Position

Institue of Life Course and Medical Sciences and Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom

Project Title: Determining predictive metabolomic biomarkers for meniscal injuries in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament rupture using stifle joint synovial fluid

Project Description: We believe that the metabolites changing in canine cruciate ligament disease (CCLD) and following meniscal tears can be used as diagnostic biomarkers and treatment targets. CCL rupture and assoicated mensical tears are are common orthopaedic conditions to affect dogs resulting in osteoarthritis (OA) and contributing to pain and lameness in the stifle joint.

Despite these conditions having a high occurrence, accurate diagnosis without surgical intervention for meniscal tears and prognostic determination still remains a challenge. Currently there are no biomarkers associated with meniscal injury or CCLR which can be used as diagnostic markers or provide targets for alternative medical management of CCLs at a high risk of rupture, for example in contralateral CCLs in high risk breeds or partial CCL tears. Synovial fluid (SF) is an integral articular component closely associated with other articular tissues which are primarily altered during joint disease. Preliminary analysis of canine SF supports the assumption that mammalian SF metabolite profiles are markedly similar. A small mixed breed-cohort also indicated metabolic differences attributable to mensical injury status.

The aim of this study is to define the metabolomic profile of synovial fluid from normal canine stifle (knee) joints and those affected by CCLR (with and without meniscal injuries) in order to provide early biomarkers of disease. We hypothesise that: H1) the metabolomic profile of synovial fluid in dogs will change according to the presence of CCLR and with or without meniscal injury and H2) the identification of specific synovial fluid metabolomic profiles of these clinical groups will enable the development of a minimally invasive test more predictive of dogs with meniscal injuries than currently available diagnostic techniques.

This project will provide a short period of multidisciplinary research training for a MRCVS or MRCVS eiligible qualified veterinary surgeon, which will lead to a Masters in Philosophy qualification at the University of Liverpool. No prior knowledge of metabolomics is required and although no laboratory skills are required they would be beneficial. This may be from studentships undertaken whilst at an undergraduate, through an intercalation degree or industry. Training will be given in sample collection and preparation, and data analysis.

The funding is through a BSAVA Petsavers award for full-time MRCVS eligible VETERINARY SURGEON to undertake a one year funded MPhil. The stipend is tax-free.

The award covers:
• University MPhil fees for 1 year at UK or EU postgraduate student rates (NOT Overseas), Student stipend for a veterinary graduate and research costs to cover the period of the study

Name and email address to direct enquiries to:

Mandy Peffers  peffs@liv.ac.uk and Eithne Comerford ejc@liverpool.ac.uk

To apply:  please send your CV and a covering letter to Mandy Peffers (peffs@liv.ac.uk) with a copy to iacdpgr@liverpool.ac.uk
