  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 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: 19 April 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: 26 July 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.
  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.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Automated detection of cardiac arrhythmia locations to optimise treatments using a combined physics and machine-learning approach
  Dr M Bishop
Applications accepted all year round
1st Supervisor - Dr Martin Bishop. 2nd Supervisor - Dr Andy King. Cardiac arrhythmias are responsible for over 80,000 instances of sudden cardiac death annually in the UK.
