he mitral valve (MV) is a complex structure regulating forward flow of blood between the left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV) of human heart.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  Coaching biomechanics interface and effective skill and physical development.
  Prof G Irwin
Application Deadline: 29 October 2019

Funding Type

With tennis players training near physiological maximum identifying the most effective and efficient pathways of skill development and performance enhancement is desirable.
  Could anti-inflammatory treatment at ACL reconstruction improve biological, functional and clinical outcomes?
  Dr D Mason, Prof C A Holt
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
  Localised muscular fatigue in male and female distance runners
  Dr N Swann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The significance of gait imperfections can be easily contemplated in competitive athletic pursuits where optimised technique can increase chances of success…
