  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.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  Developing preclinical models for cancer therapeutics using biomaterials and omics technologies
  Prof A Nicolaou, Dr A Tirella
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrogels are biomaterials used to prepare in vitro models used to study many biological processes. These materials can be selectively modified to present different physical, chemical and mechanical properties to mimic the ones of the extracellular matrix present in different tissues.
  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.
  Using biomaterials and 3D bioprinting to model the neurovascular unit in dementia
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, cerebrovasculature and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Bioengineering of innovative functional biomaterials for diagnosis of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round
Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. The sensitive and specific diagnosis of Q fever is important for early intervention and for control and management of the disease.
  Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round
Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round
This is a self-funded project, match-finding option may be available for qualifying candidates. Please include a detailed CV with any enquiries.
  Bioactive Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine aim to either replace diseased or damaged tissue with a functional, laboratory-grown substitute, or stimulate the body’s own cells in order to promote repair.
