heart disease PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 121 heart disease PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Biomechanical signalling in human heart disease

About the Project. The human heart undergoes more than 2 billion beats throughout an individual's lifetime, with its rhythm precisely regulated by signalling events that continuously adapt to the biomechanical stress exerted on the ventricular walls. Read more

A Digital Health Program Targeting Physical Activity among Middle-Aged Menopausal Women at Risk of Coronary Heart Disease

  Research Group: Nursing, Midwifery and Early Years Research Group
Fully Funded 4 yr PhD Studentship, Netwell Casala Research Group, Dundalk, Ireland. Key Areas; Digital Health, Menopause, Heart Disease, Digital Intervention, Exercise, Physical Activity. Read more

Bioengineering a dynamic culture platform to improve the maturity of iPSC-derived muscle organoids

About the project. Heart disease is a critical health burden and leading cause of mortality worldwide. To understand disease mechanisms and develop future treatments for heart disease, we have developed a human cardiac organoid platform derived from pluripotent stem cells. Read more

Examining the mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease by studying the heart or adipose tissue

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. Read more

Platelets in health, ageing and disease: new diagnostics and treatments

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), and also have roles in immunity, inflammation, cancer metastasis, Alzheimer's disease and a range of infections, such as dengue, HIV-1, malaria, and COVID-19. Read more

Investigating the mechanisms for cardiac fibrosis development and reversal

Research interests/description of main research theme. Fibrosis is a hard to treat condition of major socioeconomic importance, with ~45% of all deaths in the developed world being attributed to some type of chronic fibro-proliferative disease and is exemplified by heart disease. Read more

Cardiac Harmony: Modelling Heart Beats with Stem Cells and Code

Despite significant advancements in cardiac research, heart disease remains a leading cause of mortality globally. Unexpected cardiac events can occur even in young, fit individuals engaged in routine activities. Read more

Investigating the link between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.

Research interests/description of main research theme.  Patients with chronic kidney disease are 40% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, however, mechanisms driving the cardiovascular pathogenesis are unclear. Read more

Investigation of short-term effects of colchicine on blood proteins using proteomics

The anti-inflammatory medication colchicine has been shown to significantly improve cardiovascular outcomes post heart attack and in chronic heart disease patient groups, suggesting it may be a suitable candidate for repurposing in cardiovascular diseases. Read more

The role of ubiquitin-modifying enzymes in angiogenesis

The School of Molecular & Cellular Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more
