Investigating the Immune and Inflammatory Response to Traumatic Injury

We are seeking talented, motivated students with a passion for research in the field of immunology and traumatic injury to join the trauma research team lead by Dr Jon Hazeldine (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/profiles/inflammation-ageing/hazeldine-jon.aspx). Read more

Real-Time Brain Injury Prediction and Protection Framework for Intelligent Vehicles

The advancement of intelligent vehicles (IVs) has significantly improved their collision avoidance capabilities under normal driving conditions, yet the complete prevention of accidents remains elusive. Read more

Investigating the influence of structural openings on blast wave propagation and human injury risk

Supervisory Team: Dr Jack Denny; Prof Steeve Chung Kim Yuen (University of Cape Town). Project description. This PhD offers you the opportunity to tackle the real-world challenge of developing strategies to protect buildings and their occupants from explosions. Read more

Role of nonlinear movement analysis in the understanding of injury onset and rehabilitation in women's football

  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
Return to sport (RTS), following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, and overreaching and overtraining are key injury challenges that affect performance, health, and well-being in women’s football. Read more

Endothelial glycocalyx damage as a therapeutic target in sepsis-associated Acute Kidney Injury

Sepsis is the leading cause of acute kidney injury (sAKI), associated with high morbidity and mortality.1,2 Unfortunately, there is no treatment for sAKI, current therapies are nonspecific and supportive of the vital organ systems in the hope the kidney will recover. Read more

Exploring Molecular Pathways for Improved Neural Regeneration in Spinal Cord Injury

In the UK, 50,000 people currently live with spinal cord injury (SCI), and an additional 2,500 new cases are reported annually. SCI results in a permanent loss of sensation and movement, serving as a primary cause of paralysis for which effective treatments are currently unavailable. Read more

Intrinsic mechanisms of axonal regeneration following peripheral nerve injury

Peripheral nerve injury (PNI) is a common consequence of trauma with life-changing implications both physically (loss of limb function) and psychologically (impact on employment, personal relationships and wider wellbeing). Read more

Examining mental health and wellbeing service provision for rugby players experiencing catastrophic injury (Ref: SSEHS/RFU)

Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) in rugby are rare, however the consequences are far-reaching. sustaining a catastrophic injury presents a rapid and life-altering shift in a rugby players’ personal and social identity and their day-to-day reality. Read more

Exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms mediating myelin formation, injury and repair in the central nervous system

We are seeking talented, motivated students with a passion for research on glial cells and their involvement in mechanisms mediating central nervous system development, function and disease states to join the Oligodendrocyte and Myelin Research Group led by Dr Daniel Fulton. Read more

Alterations in reparative dentinogenesis with ageing, gender and genetic predisposition

Dental pulp exposure caused by tooth decay or injury can lead to life-threatening infections. Following injury, reparative dentinogenesis serves a vital purpose through the accelerated generation of tertiary dentine, comprising mineral and type I collagen. Read more
