Age-related macular degeneration is reported to be the most common cause of visual impairment, and its certification, in the developed world.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
  Microfabricated Engineered Systems for Sustained Ocular Drug Delivery
  Dr R Thakur, Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

  Dr F Manson, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Blindness can be caused by mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), the tissue adjacent to the rod and cone photoreceptor cells that is essential for their normal function.
  Modelling subretinal injections to improve delivery of treatment for age-related eye diseases
  Dr VR Kearns, Dr B Geraghty, Dr A Abass, Prof D Steel
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Training. The University of Liverpool has set up a Doctoral Training Network in Technologies for Healthy Ageing to train the next generation of physical scientists and engineers to develop novel technologies and devices to address the challenges faced by older people and our clinical colleagues who work with them.
  Unraveling corneal fibrosis mechanisms via the study of vimentin expression in corneal cells on electrospun membranes
  Dr I Ortega, Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is estimated that 135 million people have severely impaired vision because of a loss of corneal transparency. Corneal blindness is considered the 4th largest cause of blindness worldwide, after cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
