It is common to make longitudinal observations, repeated measurements over time, of biomarkers (and other covariates). Rather than smoothly changing over time, some biomarkers may exhibit sharp changes in their behaviour; a change-point is an identifiable shift in the long-run biomarker level.
The Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science (BECS) research group at the University of Glasgow is looking to recruit an excellent PhD student to assess carbon storage and ecosystem dynamics through biomarker approaches in recently discovered tropical peatlands of northern Peru.

The eye, with common embryonic origins to the brain and other shared anatomical features such as a blood–tissue barrier and nerves, is an area of the central nervous system amenable to non-invasive study.
One of the key pathological characteristics of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the maladaptive and chronic accumulation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in affected glomeruli leading to fibrosis and progressive loss of function.
Predicting the time to onset of Alzheimer’s disease is challenging, but predictions will help to identify patients at risk and help to identify patients that may benefit from new developments in care and treatment.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting the adult population. Currently, definitive diagnosis of OA is usually made using plain x-rays at relatively advanced stages of the disease when there is irreparable damage to the joint(s).
