  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Intra-body communication for ingestible electronics
  Dr G Cummins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Galvanic and capacitive coupling are techniques whereby the human body is used as a transmission medium for the bidirectional transfer of low-power, and low-frequency electrical signals between two devices.

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.
  Pharmacoengineering of advanced RNA-nanomedicines to treat cystic fibrosis (CF)
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Prof C Greene
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder caused by a mutation in a single gene responsible for the production of a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR).
  Bioresorbable scaffolds for the repair and regeneration of natural bone
  Dr K Manda, Dr F Buchanan, Dr A Lennon
Applications accepted all year round
