Exploring the potential for drug repurposing to enhance muscle mass and function in older adults.

Programme description. Loss of resilience describes enhanced vulnerability to, and impaired recovery from stress events when compared to a robust [youthful/healthy] state; and is commonly encountered with advancing age. Read more

A high throughput system for measuring the mechanical properties of human cardiac tissues

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand. The mechanical properties of cardiac tissues are often quantified in experiments that manipulate muscle length and measure response parameters such as strain, stress, and stiffness. Read more

Human Appetite and Obesity

The School of Psychology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25 for the Thomas Ward Scholarship. Read more

Computational modelling of lymphatic function in health and disease

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand!. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues, organs, and vessels that play a critical role in the body's immune defence and fluid balance. Read more

Advanced Deep Learning Methods for Automatic Segmentation of Brain Tumours and other Intracranial Structures

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand!. Preoperative manual segmentation of Brain tumours is an extremely time-consuming task and adds an enormous amount of Neurosurgical workload. Read more

Electromagnetic tracking system for the gut

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand. When gut function is impaired, nutritional support and diagnostic interventions often require the insertion of catheters, typically performed without visual guidance. Read more

Understanding digestion through imaging and modelling

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand!. Once food is ingested, the stomach serves as a reservoir and continues to break down the food into smaller particles until they are small enough to progress into the small intestine. Read more

Electrophysiology of menstruation; a multiscale modelling approach

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand!. Contractions of the uterus vary during the different phases of the menstrual cycle. Read more

Targeting the sweet tooth to curb population-wide sugar intake

Excess intake of dietary sugars are a major contributor to obesity, and type 2 diabetes and 82% of people state that taste is the major determinant of what they buy and eat. Read more
