  Patient-reported healing outcomes for venous leg ulcers
  Prof N Cullum, Dr J Dumville
Applications accepted all year round
Venous leg ulcers are a common, chronic and debilitating condition. For patients these open wounds, caused by venous hypertension, are painful, at risk of infection and limit health-related quality of life.
  Parallels between wound healing and cancer – role of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Prof A M Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Wound healing and cancer metastasis share common early signalling pathways that have led to the hypothesis that tumours are “wounds that do not heal”, a phrase first coined by Virchow in the 19th century.
  Discrete Multiphysics modelling of self-healing infrastructure materials
  Dr A Alexiadis
Applications accepted all year round
The Objective. Develop a complete virtual environment, based on a computational approach known as Discrete Multiphysics, that can be applied to assess the behaviour and durability of infrastructure materials such as concrete, asphalt, or masonry and enable the design of a new class of self-healing materials.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Investigation of the generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  Effect of microstructure in the mechanical response of cost-effective biomimetic constructs for rapid wound healing
  Dr A Tsamis, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
A chronic wound is a wound that has failed to proceed through an orderly and timely process to produce anatomic and functional integrity or a wound that has proceeded through the repair process without establishing a sustained anatomic and functional result.
  (A*STAR) Elucidating the role of polyamines in the epidermal skin barrier
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr K Mace, Dr A Saunders
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Delayed wound healing is a major health issue affecting one in 50 people. The process of wound healing is a highly orchestrated process involving many cell types and regulatory networks.
  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
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 molecular regulators during skin development and wound healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round
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).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Use of engineered protein polymers in wound repair
  Prof N Reynolds, Prof J Lakey, Dr P Gulati
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cutaneous wound healing is a major socioeconomic and clinical problem resulting in a significant burden, with an estimated £2.3-3.1 billion per year being spent on wound care in the UK, 3% of the NHS total expenditure.
