  The phenotypic and functional identification of angiogenic T-cells for potential use to treat cardiovascular disease Project ID SAS0043
  Dr M Ross, Dr G Wright
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. This project is based within the School of Applied Sciences at Edinburgh Napier University and is led by Dr.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  Statistical and machine learning methods for risk prediction of cardiovascular diseases from complex longitudinal data
  Dr G Czanner, Dr I Olier, Prof P Lisboa, Prof G Lip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Risk prediction models are used in clinical decision making and are used to help patients make an informed choice about their treatment.
  Novel approaches for treating cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Erickson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death throughout most of the world, and existing therapeutic options are unsuitable for a large percentage of patients.
  The effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA, “fish oils”), on vascular and potassium channel function
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a large body of evidence that consumption of oily fish or supplementation of fish oils leads to improvements in cardiovascular heath (as well as other health benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects).
  Multiscale Analysis of the interactions between a Novel Total Artificial Heart and the Native Cardiovascular System
  Dr K Fraser, Dr A Cookson
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

For patients with severe end-stage heart failure the only hope of long term survival is a heart transplant. However, donor hearts are scarce, and not available for all who need them.
  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.
  The human heart in health and disease, one cell at a time
  Dr M Noseda
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

3-year NHLI-funded PhD post – starting October 2019. Applications are invited from candidates with a Master’s degree (Merit and above) in Biomedical Sciences, Immunology or a related discipline, for a 3 year PhD.
  Common severe childhood infections, innate inflammatory responses and cardiometabolic risk: The VASCular changes aFter INfectious Diseases (VASCFIND) study
  Prof D Burgner, Dr S Bekkering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY. Infection, the commonest reason for childhood hospital admission, is a major driver of inflammation and is associated with cardiometabolic risk and disease.
  Investigating the molecular mechanisms and consequences of ANP aggregation for cardiovascular disease; a computational and experimental approach
  Dr J Madine, Dr D J Rigden, Dr M Winn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a cardiovascular hormone synthesised and secreted by myocytes in the atrial wall where it regulates atrial blood volume and vasodilation.
