  Unraveling corneal fibrosis mechanisms via the study of vimentin expression in corneal cells on electrospun membranes
  Dr I Ortega, Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is estimated that 135 million people have severely impaired vision because of a loss of corneal transparency. Corneal blindness is considered the 4th largest cause of blindness worldwide, after cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  Small nerve fibre damage and sexual dysfunction in diabetes and obesity. A mechanistic assessment and effect of lipid modifying agents.
  Dr H Soran, Prof R Malik, Dr R Donn, Dr M Ferdousi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes and its complications represent a growing global health burden, affecting an estimated 366 million people worldwide.
  Towards a THz imager for eye diagnosis
  Dr M Navarro-Cia
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sandwiched between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum, THz radiation (ca. 0.1 – 3 THz) holds promise for medical diagnosis, security applications (chemical fingerprinting and standoff screening) and industrial control processes [1].
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Innovating an anti-tilt human eye topographer
  Dr A Abass, Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to design a human eye topographer that able to scan the eye topography without tilting.
  PhD studentship: The Bionic Eye – embedding electronic systems in a tissue engineered cornea
  Prof CJ Connon
Application Deadline: 27 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 28 September 2020. 3 Year PhD. Overview. You will join a world class team undertaking adventurous research at the interface of tissue engineering and microelectronics.
  The Biological and Pathological Effects of Blinking (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT1)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Blinking is essential to spread the tear film over the surface of the eye and so keeps the eye moist and lubricated to ensure a smooth surface for refraction of light and provision of essential nutrients and protective antimicrobial molecules.
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
