Join ARU's Medical Technology Research Centre (MTRC) for an online seminar from Dr Jasmine Samvelyan about recent findings from her research on musculoskeletal ageing, including the role of growth abnormalities in osteoarthritis predisposition.
Identification of modified growth plate dynamics underpinning human osteoarthritis will allow elucidation into osteoarthritis predisposition and ultimately enable the development of novel and specific therapeutic interventions.
Dr Jasmine Samvelyan is a Lecturer in Biomedical Science for ARU's MBChB course and lead of the Musculoskeletal and Developmental Biology Research Group at the Medical Technology Research Centre. Her expertise lies in utilizing cellular, molecular, and in vivo approaches to study musculoskeletal ageing.
Jasmine completed her BSc (Hons) degree in Biomedical Science with Sheffield Graduate Award at The University of Sheffield. Before pursuing a PhD at the Medical Research Council Versus Arthritis Centre for Integrated Research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) at The University of Sheffield, Newcastle University and University of Liverpool, Dr Samvelyan was awarded an MRes in musculoskeletal ageing at the CIMA. In this innovative graduate training programme, she studied the effects of ageing on the musculoskeletal system to identify interventions that reduce deleterious effects of ageing on the skeleton.
Dr Samvelyan was then awarded a Medical Research Council funded research fellowship in osteoarthritis at The University of Edinburgh and then University of Brighton. She lectured and led student-selected components of years 1-2 for medical students (BMBS) at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, before joining ARU's School of Medicine as a lecturer in Biomedical Science.
