  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
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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The direct effect of statins on cardiovascular function
  Dr M Cross, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the western world. The incidence and prevalence of CVD is highest among the elderly due to the deleterious effects of advancing age on the heart and blood vessels1.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programame: Extracellular Matrix Abnormalities in Cardiac Insulin Resistance as a Therapeutic Target of Chronic Heart Failure
  Dr L Kang, Prof C Lang
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This project is part of our exciting and challenging University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science.
  Extracellular Matrix Abnormalities in Cardiac Insulin Resistance as a Therapeutic Target of Chronic Heart Failure
  Dr L Kang, Prof C Lang
Applications accepted all year round
Description. Diabetes and chronic heart failure (CHF) often coexist such that each condition may affect the other in terms of causation and outcome.
  Molecular mechanisms controlling cardiac fibroblast proliferation during cardiac fibrosis
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
Applicants are invited for a new self-funded PhD studentship to study the molecular mechanisms of cardiac fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is a significant global health problem associated with nearly all forms of heart disease.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation
  Dr S Reilly, Assoc Prof M Lei
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Using a combination of extensive cell culture and molecular biology techniques, and functional cellular assays to understand molecular mechanisms underlying myocardial structural and electrical remodelling associated with atrial fibrillation.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing non-invasive imaging strategies to investigate the effect of kidney disease on cardiovascular health and assess the ameliorative effect of a regenerative medicine therapy
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  Resistant Hypertension – pathological insights from cardiac microvascular perfusion and mechanics.
  Dr D Oxborough, Prof K George, Prof GYH Lip
Applications accepted all year round
Hypertension commonly predisposes to many cardiovascular complications, including atrial fibrillation, heart failure and stroke. Importantly the heart is responsible for blood pressure yet suffers the consequences of uncontrolled hypertension.
  Determining the influence of cardiac stem and progenitor cells on new blood vessel formation.
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr A.J. Smith
Applications accepted all year round
With the significant and growing healthcare burden caused by chronic heart failure, the ability to develop new directions for treatment, reducing or preventing the worsening of disease, would be of great value.
