  Investigating the role of Inter-alpha-inhibitor Heavy Chain 3 in age-related macular degeneration
  Dr S Clark, Prof T Day
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness globally. It is well established that although a multifactorial disease, AMD is largely genetically driven, with the majority of attributable genetic risk being associated with loci on chromosome 1 (Chr1) and chromosome 10 (Chr10).
  Deciphering the role of macrophage in retinal fibrosis secondary to neovascular age-related macular degeneration
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof H Xu, Dr M Chen, Prof D Fitzgerald
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) causes blindness and terribly affects the quality of life of those affected. Over 600,000 people in the UK and approximately 25 million worldwide have advanced AMD.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round
Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
  Investigation of long-term sensory neuronal degeneration and pain in adult childhood cancer survivors
  Dr RP Hulse
Applications accepted all year round
Advances in childhood cancer research has led to increased understanding and early diagnosis of cancer, has led to a significant increase in childhood cancer survivorship.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round
Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round
The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  Exploration of TMS as a potential early biomarker for ALS and application to novel drug discovery
  Prof C Shaw, Prof M Richardson
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
We have been engaged in developing reliable neurophysiological biomarkers that can track disease progression and monitor the effects of new therapeutics in clinical trials.
  Manipulating the environment of cultured stem cells to optomise the structure and mechanical properties of cartilaginous tissue constructs
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof J Hoyland
Applications accepted all year round
Lower back pain (LBP) is a debilitating, age-related, spinal disease which is a major burden on society. Degeneration of the intervertebral disc (IVD) is a key cause of LBP.
  The KT Tan PhD Scholarship in Vision Sciences
  Dr R Natoli
Applications accepted all year round
If you were asked, what was the one sense that you couldn’t live without, most of you would have immediately thought of your sight.
  Statistical characterisation of brain tissue microstructure with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Dr L Beltrachini, Prof K Murphy
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a medical imaging technique that allows to characterise brain structures in the microscale in vivo and non-invasively.
