  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
  Accurate measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in adults with a spinal cord injury
  Dr D Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research will be conducted with an industry partner to develop a device for accurate measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in adults with a spinal cord injury who use a manual wheelchair (those with paraplegia).
  Basic and clinical studies on spinal cord injury
  Dr G Shea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury has a devastating effect on affected individuals, who are often of working age and subject to a lifetime of dependency and debilitation.
  The Development of a Tailored Mindfulness Intervention for Spinal Cord Injury
  Dr K Finlay, Dr M Tilley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student to work on the development of a tailored mindfulness intervention for Spinal Cord Injury.
  Establishing and validating different histology-based approaches to quantitatively assess efficacy of therapies in an animal model of ischaemia reperfusion injury (IRI)
  Dr L Ressel, Prof P Murray, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute and chronic kidney disease in children is increasing but new therapies to help treat and prevent the progression of the disease are lacking.
  The effects of Interleukin-1 primed mesenchymal stem cells on hypoxic-ischemic brain damage
  Dr E Pinteaux, Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxic-ischemic brain damage is one of the main causes of death and neurological disability after stroke worldwide.
  Validation of microRNAs as novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets in ischaemic brain injury
  Dr S Pfeiffer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ischaemic stroke is a leading cause of death and most common cause of acquired major disability resulting from death of brain tissue and focal neurological deficits; however, despite decades of research, treatment options remain limited and the lack of therapeutic treatment strategies is a critical clinical problem.
  Functional activity of upper extremities to improve trunk function after spinal cord injury
  Dr S Chiou, Prof D Falla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to study efficacy of combined arm cycling and standard exercise in improving trunk function in individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI).
  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  Localised muscular fatigue in male and female distance runners
  Dr N Swann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The significance of gait imperfections can be easily contemplated in competitive athletic pursuits where optimised technique can increase chances of success…
  Inflammation, the immune system and neurological disease
  Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is now recognised as a key contributor to neuronal injury in both acute and chronic neurodegenerative disease. Many studies in this area have focussed on the post-injury inflammatory response and in particular on the role of specific cytokines in the central nervous system.
  Reducing running related injury risk factors in middle-aged runners (Ref: SF20/SER/HAYES2)
  Dr P Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Running popularity has increased in recent years with events such as The Parkrun, a weekly 5-km run, attracting approximately 105,000 participants nationally per week.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  Multimodal Control of Prosthetic Limbs/Paralysed Muscles
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to enhance the quality of life of patients with amputees, spinal cord injury, stroke and brain injury by developing advanced control strategies for artificial limbs.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo tissue regeneration
  Dr D Ungar, Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
