  Dr M Bellingham, Dr M Drake
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Michelle Bellingham. Dr Amanda Drake. Prof Paul A. Fowler. PhD project summary. The fetal environment plays a key role in programming normal brain development in the womb.
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  Mechanisms behind fetal vascular dysfunction in diabetic pregnancies
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round
The central research focus of our group is to understand the mechanisms regulating two key functions of human blood vessels. permeability and angiogenesis.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Blood flow and solute transport in human placental vascular networks: an in silico approach to characterizing pregnancy pathologies
  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
  Dr M Bernabeu, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The human placenta performs diverse functions later taken on by several different organs. In particular, it mediates the exchange of vital solutes, including respiratory gases and nutrients, between the mother and the developing fetus.
