  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.

  Statistical characterisation of brain tissue microstructure with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Dr L Beltrachini, Prof K Murphy
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a medical imaging technique that allows to characterise brain structures in the microscale in vivo and non-invasively.
  STRATIFY: Brain network-based stratification of reinforcement-related mental health disorders.
  Prof G Schumann, Dr E Burke Quinlan
Application Deadline: 25 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main body of work has been concerned with the identification of neural mechanisms of reinforcement-related disorders. Here we have made seminal contributions to the field.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Modulation of Brain Energy Metabolism by Astrocytic G-protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr A Teschemacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Toward Next generation of Brain Computer Interfaces
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a direct communication pathway between a human brain and an external device. Using appropriate sensors and data processing algorithms, a BCI maps patterns of brain activity associated with a volitional thought onto signals suitable for communication and control.
  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (Laser Research and Therapy Fund) - University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumour with a median survival for adults of only 11 – 15 months. Published studies have shown that prognosis can be improved if near-complete removal of the tumour can be achieved in surgery.

  Prof A Kemp, Prof M Dunn, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumour with a median survival for adults of only 11 – 15 months. Published studies have shown that prognosis can be improved if near-complete removal of the tumour can be achieved in surgery [do we need to put references?].
