  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Improving assessment of single ventricle heart function after surgery in children
  Dr D Espino, Dr V Rajagopal
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Each year, it is estimated that 13,500 children around the World are born with a form of congenital heart disease that means only one out of the two heart pumps (ventricles) is functionally viable.
  Studying the mechanisms that cause heart failure
  Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round
Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack, and this presents a huge economic burden each year.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Multiscale Determinants of Myocardial Mechanics
  Dr D Nordsletten
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Dr David Nordsletten. Second Supervisor. Professor Reza Razavi. Understanding the health and function of heart muscle is critical to the assessment of a range of cardiac pathologies.
  Novel biomarker discovery in heart failure: A metabolomics and systems biology approach
  Prof D Kell, Prof GYH Lip
Application Deadline: 17 May 2019
Health failure is a highly prevalent condition, and a major cause of death and hospitalisation. Heart failure results in major healthcare costs, and much focus has been directed towards earlier diagnosis and detection, so that established treatments can be introduced.
  Harnessing stem cells to develop regenerative therapies for childhood heart disease.
  Dr E Porrello, Dr D Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
LABORATORY OVERVIEW. The Cardiac Regeneration Laboratory is seeking highly motivated PhD students to work on a project related to understanding the underlying causes of congenital heart disease and developing novel regenerative therapies.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round
A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
