  Identification of a biomarker of sensory dysfunction for patients who have developed neuropathic pain following cancer chemotherapy using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and machine learning.
  Prof D Steele, Prof L Colvin
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Acute pain is intrinsically unpleasant and aversive but is useful as it has survival benefit. However, many people suffer from chronic treatment-resistant pain that lasts months or years, lacks survival benefit, seriously impairs quality of life and causes unnecessary suffering.
  Biomarkers of Coronary Artery Disease in multi-ethnic populations
  Prof D Jones, Prof NJ Samani, Prof G McCann
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a serious and prevalent cardiovascular disease which can present in patients in many ways. Notably, it has a higher prevalence in the South Asian population.
  Using state-of-the-art proteomics to study the cellular and extracellular protein composition in human kidney disease; identification of novel biomarkers and bioactive drug targets in IgA Nephropathy
  Dr A Didangelos, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  The Epigenetics of Child Language - exploring the involvement of DNA methylation in the development of languageskills in children.
  Dr G Sharp
Applications accepted all year round
Oral Language skills are essential to everyday life. Most children acquire them effortlessly but. some are “language impaired”. It is currently unclear what causes this variability between.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people.
  Precision profiling the breast cancer microenvironment
  Prof V Speirs, Dr R Abu Eid
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The cancer microenvironment contains many different cell types, including various subsets of immune cells and cancer-associated fibroblasts, which support cancer growth.
  The impact of music therapy on the physiological and psychological stress of being a carer for a partner with dementia.
  Prof H Odell-Miller, Dr E Lee, Dr A Street, Dr M Bristow
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Music therapy. The incidence of dementia is increasing as our society ages. This has led to an increase in ‘informal’ caring, where partners provide the majority of the care for their loved one with dementia.
  Precision healthcare - A novel diagnostic platform to detect liver cancer biomarkers in urine
  Dr A Salehi Reyhani, Prof S Taylor-Robinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Hepatocellular carcinoma, or liver cancer, is the 6th most common cause of cancer but the 2nd biggest cancer-killer globally. In this highly multidisciplinary project, you will help develop new methods for the detection of liver cancer at the point-of-care based on our pioneering work in miniaturised diagnostics.
  SiMPLeR: Single-sequence Multi-dimensional Prostate MRI with Deep Learning for enhanced image guided Radiotherapy Treatment
  Dr I Dregely
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Dr Isabel Dregely. Second Supervisor. Dr M. Jorge Cardoso. The aim of this project is to improve cancer treatment and cure rates through highly individualised radiotherapy by developing next generation image guidance for integration with radiotherapy planning.
  Development of a Wearable Microfluidic Platform Employing Wireless Actuators and Sensors (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/TORUN)
  Dr H Torun
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to develop a wearable microfluidic platform capable of monitoring biophysical parameters simultaneously with manipulating biological fluids.
