  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Ligament and tendon repair using a specific population of joint progenitor cells
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ligaments and tendons stabilize the musculoskeletal system, controlling mobility. Anterior cruciate ligament in knee joints restrict the dimension of joint movement, while Achilles tendon transmit forces from calf muscle to bone enabling locomotion of ankle joints.
  Investigation of the generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Investigation of the Role of Long Non Coding RNA During Skin Development and Wound Healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin morphogenesis occurs under stringent control of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and result in a formation of the epidermis and a number of different skin appendages (including, the hair follicle, HF).
  PhD studentship in anticipatory and self-healing infrastructure systems
  Prof L Varga
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded doctoral studentship is available to grow infrastructure systems research which reflects uncertainties due to (i) the burgeoning growth of inter-dependent energy, transport, water, waste and telecoms systems; (ii) the rising abundance of low-carbon distributed infrastructure; and (iii) the digitisation of everything infrastructure related.
  Investigating the role of connexins in the gingival response to the oral microbiota
  Dr J Butcher, Dr C Wright, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19005. Periodontal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory and bone destructive disease that imposes a substantial social and economic burden, and has been linked to the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Comparing the effect of two different implant surface technologies on successful osseointegration in over-prepared osteotomy sites with reduced primary stability.
  Dr S Shahdad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Research leading to the development of newer dental implant materials as well as understanding the cellular and acellular healing mechanisms between implant surface and surrounding hard and soft tissues have been in progress for over six decades.
  Development of Novel Lightweight and Mutli-functional Architectured Graphene-based Nacre Nanolaminates (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/ELMARAKBI)
  Prof A Elmarakbi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is devoted to design, creation, and development of new multifunctional smart materials and improved performances that will underlie the technologies of the future.
