Development of the Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research (CMAR) into an internationally functioning institute will be enhanced by strategic collaborations with other world-leading centres of ageing research excellence.
In the UK:
University of Houston
University of California, Berkeley
University of California, Davis
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
We have secured agreement from several pharmaceutical (GSK, Novartis), nutritional (Abbott, Nestle) and lifestyle (HUR, Move it or Lose it) partners to collaborate on research
To strengthen our links all CMAR-funded PhD students can spend up to 1 year at one of the collaborating institutes or industrial partners listed above. We also have a pump priming activity fund to allow early career researchers and junior faculty to set up collaborations with these same units.
