  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Research Group: Vision Research
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20030 Jeon. Background. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  Synthesis and identification of homoisoflavonoids and lignans for the treatment of wet active age-related macular degeneration based on their anti-vascular endothelial growth factor and anti-inflammatory activities
  Dr S Schwikkard, Dr E Opara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related macular degeneration is reported to be the most common cause of visual impairment, and its certification, in the developed world.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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]).
  The role and regulation of microtubules during axon growth and degeneration
  Prof A Prokop
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axons are the enormously long cable-like processes of neurons that wire the nervous system. These delicate structures have to be maintained for a life time.
  Non-viral gene therapy to prevent cartilage degeneration in Osteoarthritis
  Dr C Curtain, Dr O Kennedy, Dr F O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of joint disease, affecting one in five people in the EU and results in activity limitations for approximately one in ten.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Investigating the effectiveness of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in reducing type 2 diabetes induced peripheral neuropathy and pain.
  Dr M Nassar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a serious health issue in developed and developing countries. About 415 million adults have diabetes, a number that is estimated to increase by 50% in 20 years.
  Mechanisms of cilia biogenesis and signalling
  Dr B Tanos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cilia are sensory organelles that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli from the environment. They arise from centrioles and function as “antennae” that receive and integrate extracellular signals.
  Measuring the Impact of Visual Impairment on Face Perception: A Combined Behavioural and Haemodynamic Approach
  Research Group: Vision Research
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Dr L Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20025. Faces contain a wealth of information. a brief glimpse is typically sufficient to recognise a familiar face or interpret a facial expression.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Hybrid Optical-Digital Coherence Tomography
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
