  A dynamic biomaterial-ligand tethering strategy for tissue engineering
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Biomaterials that can trigger the repair of damaged tissues have the potential to revolutionise the way we treat disease. Materials that can present cells and tissues with powerful biochemical signals, through attached peptides, proteins, and carbohydrates, are particularly effective at controlling regeneration.
  Efficacy testing of biomaterial delivered iPS cells in in vitro cultures systems to mimic the degenerate niche
  Prof C Le Maitre, Prof C Sammon
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Low back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability and morbidity worldwide. It is widely accepted that a major contributor to LBP is intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD).
  Increasing the potency of biomaterials for tissue growth
  Dr C Spicer, Dr D Lagos
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Materials that can trigger the regrowth and repair of damaged biological tissue have the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round
Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  Cellular responses to radiation curing of resin-composite materials
  Dr R M Shelton, Prof W Palin, Dr P Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
Ultraviolet and visible light energy is routinely used for crosslinking a multitude of biomaterial applications ranging from hydrogels for tissue engineering and drug delivery, laser activated surgical adhesives to resin-based composite dental restoratives.
  Synthesis of Microcarriers for Focal Drug Delivery to the Brain
  Dr B Newland
Applications accepted all year round
For neurodegenerative diseases, where a specific cell type is lost, it is possible to consider replacing these cells to restore the lost function.
  Vascular anomaly model-on-chip
  Mr p Singh
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Finnadvance, a Finnish startup, aims to unravel pathological mechanisms that drive human diseases using organ-on-chips. The startup uses microfluidics and biomaterial design to study patient samples and generates disease-on-chip models to further dissect disease processes and test new therapies.
  Design and Development of Artificial Blood Vessels For Use in the Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable tissue engineering treatment options for peripheral artery disease, with many unanswered fundamental questions.
  Intelligent biomaterials for the development of high-performance label free biosensors and medical devices
  Prof K Choy
Applications accepted all year round
New biomaterials are needed to enhance the performance of biosensors and medical devices.
  Self-assembling peptide hydrogels for large-scale organoid culture
  Dr M J Ellis
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Cancer in its entirety accounts for 28% of deaths each year in the UK, according to Cancer Research UK data. To design better treatments for cancer, a new, patient-derived “organoid” (’mini organ’) model system has been developed for drug testing.
