  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (University of St Andrews)
  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?].
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
  Machine learning for affective manipulation in music Brain Computer Interfaces
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"At the University of Reading we have created one of the first music Brain Computer Interfaces – a system that monitors the emotional states of the subject and as a result generates commands changing the nature of synthetically generated live music in order to drive the emotional state of the subject in the desired direction.
  Inhibition and Excitation in the brain
  Dr D Field
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An appropriate balance between excitatory and inhibitory neural processes in the brain underlies healthy psychological function. Two examples of conditions in which there is an imbalance are autism and ADHD.
  Adaptive Learning in brain-robot interactions
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop a non-invasive brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows a user to direct a semi-autonomous robot to perform different tasks through brain signals.
