Expressions of interest are sought from suitable candidates to undertake a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) research higher degree in clinical cardiovascular exercise physiology at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia.
  Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease
  Dr E Tzima
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow.
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Main Aim. To identify genetic and non-genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke are the leading causes of mortality worldwide and are expected to keep rising.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advancements in its treatment coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in both the UK and world wide, accounting for over 66,000 deaths in the UK each year.
  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: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

I have had a longstanding focus on inherited heart muscle diseases, in particular hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a relatively common Mendelian condition which puts affected individuals at risk of sudden cardiac death.
  Feasibility of a lifestyle behaviour change programme to promote cardiovascular and health benefits in patients with low-grade abdominal aortic aneurisms attending follow-up screening (Ref: SF20/SER/CUCATO)
  Dr G Cucato

PhD Type

We are looking for a student to join our Pharmacoepidemiology and Medication Safety Research Cluster. We’re a group of clinicians and researchers working at University College London working with electronic health care data, with expertise in pharmacoepidemiology.
  Imaging in Preventive Cardiology Research: improving how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people
  Prof P Leeson, Dr A Lewandowski
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Preventive Cardiology Research Group aims to improve how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people. The group works in three areas.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular/inflammatory diseases
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
