The central research focus of our group is to understand the mechanisms regulating two key functions of human blood vessels. permeability and angiogenesis.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.

  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.

  Prof O Dössel, Dr A Loewe
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Electrical Engineering and Information Technology” PhD Programme at KIT. Expected Results. We will provide an algorithm to quantify AF vulnerability for a given multi-scale model considering cellular and tissue (fibrosis) electrophysiological properties as well as the individual anatomy.
  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
  (EPSRC DTP) Image translation using multichannel generative adversarial networks for automatic tumour delineation
  Dr M Taylor, Dr C Rose, Dr D Cobben
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inter-observer error in tumour delineation is a significant source of uncertainty in the cancer patient pathway. Presently, the individual practice of the observing clinician dictates the treatment plan.
  Surgical approaches and acute response to small-package implantation of the tympanic membrane
  Prof S Lloyd, Dr M Stone
Application Deadline: 11 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most current implantable hearing prostheses require an external package to capture and process sound before transmission to the implant.
  Alpha-defensin haplotypes and IgA nephropathy risk
  Prof J A L Armour, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human alpha-defensin genes DEFA1 and DEFA3 encode short antimicrobial peptides that are important components of the innate immune system, and are subject to copy number variation (CNV) with individuals having between 3 and 18 copies.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.

  Dr K Hardie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen. It is a problem for the immunocompromised and has attained superbug notoriety since it is evident in hospitals and has inherent resistance to antibiotics.
