Chronic infection and persistent inflammation in people with cystic fibrosis (PWCF) lead to progressive lung damage.
  Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease
  Dr J Lamb, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement.

  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.

  Dr R Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diagnosis, assessment and management of many respiratory diseases (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; COPD), is largely dependent on traditional lung function tests such as spirometry.
