Industrial Partner. Dolomite Bio. Background. Motor neuron disease (MND) is a relentlessly progressing and devastating condition caused by the selective degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons essential for all movement.
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  MSc by Research Programme: ADP-ribosylation in the aging nervous system
  Dr L McGurk
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Laser-based manufacture of a micro-needle sensing platform for electrophysiology testing
  Prof D P Hand, Dr M Crichton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we seek to develop a multi-mode microneedle sensor that can measure electrical properties and physical tissue changes concurrently.
  Neuromuscular junction development and disease
  Dr C Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are specialized cell membrane domains that facilitate neuronal communication in the intricate nervous system. These synaptic specializations develop in response to molecular interactions between pre- and postsynaptic cells.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
  Understanding the Electric Field in Electrical Stimulation for biomedical application
  Prof W Holderbaum, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a treatment that applies small electrical charges to a muscle that has become paralysed or weakened, due to damage in your brain or spinal cord.
  Targeting the DNA damage response in spinal muscular atrophy.
  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
  Dr G Hunter, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference No. SHLS20040. Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a neuromuscular disease that is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality in humans and it is caused by mutations in a single gene known as survival motor neuron 1, SMN1, resulting in loss of the SMN protein.
