  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.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  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.
  Social Signal Processing and Affective Computing with Machine Learning to Evaluate and Enhance Perceptual Amblyopia Treatment with Serious Games
  Dr R Gibson, Dr G Cassidy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SEBE-19-003. The proposed project aims to develop applied games driven techniques to evaluate and improve amblyopia through Social Signal Processing, Affective Computing and Machine Learning techniques.
  Eye Tracking with Machine Learning Enhanced Applied Games Techniques for Improved Visual Field Loss Rehabilitation
  Dr R Gibson, Dr G Cassidy, Dr D Seidel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-011. The proposed project aims to develop machine learning based toolsets and techniques to evaluate and rehabilitate visual field loss through applied game conditions.
  Investigating a reading test as a measure of the efficacy of ocular lubricant treatment in individuals with dry eye disease
  Prof C Dickinson, Prof R Harper, Prof F Carley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The front surface of the eye is covered by a thin layer of tears to lubricate it, to help avoid infection, and to create a precise optical surface to help with the formation of clear images on the back of the eye.
  (MRC DTP) The role of eye movements in memory processing in Neurofibromatosis type 1
  Dr D Montaldi, Dr S Garg, Dr A Kafkas, Dr E Burkitt-Wright
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) is a common single gene autosomal dominant genetic disorder affecting 1 in 2500 people. Around 80% children with NF1 are affected by cognitive impairments and approximately 50% are affected by neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  Molecular control of Eye development: investigating a novel gene network at the root of retinogenesis (GROCOTTU20DTP)
  Dr T Grocott, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eye is our primary sense organ and a major conduit through which we experience the world around us. Congenital malformations that arise in the developing embryo can compromise vision, accounting for a quarter of all childhood blindness with life-long consequences.
  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]).
  (MRC DTP) Modelling inherited developmental ocular disorders using in vitro organoids to understand retinal stem cell fate decisions
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. During early eye development stem cells must balance fate decisions between proliferation and differentiation at the same time as undergoing cell migration and morphogenesis to prevent such disorders.
