  Comparing the effect of two different implant surface technologies on successful osseointegration in over-prepared osteotomy sites with reduced primary stability.
  Dr S Shahdad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Research leading to the development of newer dental implant materials as well as understanding the cellular and acellular healing mechanisms between implant surface and surrounding hard and soft tissues have been in progress for over six decades.
  Prediction of microscale geometry and performance of 3D-printed medical implants (AGUF2019)
  Dr A Gleadall
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cutting-edge medical implants for bone fracture repair are manufactured from biodegradable polymers because, unlike permanent devices, they are fully absorbed by the body over several months and do not need surgical removal after healing.
  Growth and characterisation of hard biocompatible coatings for medical implants (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/BIRKETT)
  Dr M Birkett, Dr J Khaliq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

International interest in hard, biocompatible materials for use in medical implants is growing at an exponential rate. Joint replacements are now implanted in over a million patients a year worldwide and this number is predicted to increase fivefold by 2030.
  Quick-release, fail-safe connector between osseointegration implants and artificial limbs
  Dr J Jiao Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed Training. One HDR will receive training in medical device development, including design, computational modelling, materials selection, device manufacturing and testing, and regulatory knowledge, to produce a safe, viable, and economical device that meets market demands.
  3D printing of drug delivery implants
  Dr P Boyd, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing (3DP) encompasses a wide range of. processes that create structures through deposition or binding of materials in successive.
  Robotic Implants to Control Body Functions
  Dr D Damian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we explore a new class of medical robots – robotic implants, which reside inside the body for the repair, reinforcement, and control of physical functions for a long period of time.
  Microfabricated Engineered Systems for Sustained Ocular Drug Delivery
  Dr R Thakur, Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal diseases that originate at the back of the eye, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), represent the leading causes of vision loss in the Western world.
  Osteoinduction Augmented Magnesium Medical Implants for Skeletal repairDublin City University - AMS Centre for Doctoral Training
  Prof Nicholas Dunne
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone repair materials are rapidly becoming a hot topic in the field of biomedical materials due to being an important means of repairing human bony deficiencies and replacing hard tissue.
  Modelling and simulation of the laser ablation process
  Dr S Goel
Application Deadline: 15 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

LASERS are the backbones of present day innovative engineering applications. Ranging from eye surgery to manipulation of coatings and surfaces for biomedical implants and aerospace structures or for the creation of smart materials or nano materials, their application is widespread.
  “Smart” scaffolds for preventing post-surgery infections and evaluation in a simulated in vivo microenvironment
  Dr A Anastasiou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with bacterial colonisation around implants and scaffolds is a significant clinical problem both in orthopaedics and regenerative dentistry.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  Nanotopographical modulation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface topography has been known to alter bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. It has become evident that surface hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and effective contact area are the two main factors that are responsible for the different bacterial adhesive behaviour on surfaces.
  Data-mining of materials-properties to implement ultra-precision process automation
  Prof D Walker, Prof T.L. McCluskey
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise optics underpin diverse applications, including remote-sensing from space, astronomy, laser-physics, medical-diagnostics, security & defense.
  Towards the predictive design of PAEK-based polymers - from fundamental polymer physics to advanced materials applications
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr J Mattsson, Dr P Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focused on developing a predictive framework to control glass-formation and crystallization in polymers, with a particular focus on the efficient design of high performance polymers within the Poly Aryl Ether Ketone (PAEK) family.
  Bioactive ceramic coatings with antimicrobial properties to increase orthopaedic implant longevity
  Prof H Zreiqat, Prof C Dunstan, Dr C Berndt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
