  Influence of underlying matrix on induced pluripotent stem cell differentiation and integration of trabecular meshwork cells
  Dr CM Sheridan, Dr R Oldershaw
Applications accepted all year round
There is an urgent need for further treatment options for the blinding condition of Glaucoma Unfortunately with age there is a progressive loss of cells (Trabecular meshwork) from the eye’s outflow pathway which is even more severe with patients with glaucoma.
  Biotribology of contact lens - eye interaction
  Dr R Maiti, Prof R Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Outstanding graduate students are invited to apply for a PhD studentship to study the interaction between contact lens and eye. There are approximately 125 million contact lens users worldwide.
  Overcoming the penetration depth limitations of optical coherence tomography in clinical dentistry using full electromagnetic wave computer models
  Dr P H Tomlins, Dr R Donnan
Applications accepted all year round
Background. In healthcare, imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools available. Deep tissue imaging is usually achieved using either ionising X-Ray radiation, MRI which is expensive or ultrasound, which has low resolution.
  The role of novel genes in CNS axon regeneration
  Dr Z Ahmed, Prof A Logan
Applications accepted all year round
CNS injuries result in considerable mortality and morbidity, with limited prospects of recovery for acquired disability. Lost central nervous system (CNS) neurons are not replaced and severed CNS axons do not regenerate.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  Novel regulators of +TIP localisation and function
  Dr E E Morrison, Dr S Bell, Dr J Bond
Applications accepted all year round
Microtubules (MTs) are a key cytoskeletal network in all eukaryotic cells. MTs grow and shrink primarily through the addition or loss of tubulin heterodimers from their plus end.
  Pre-clinical testing of new therapeutic treatments for cystic kidney disease
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
The primary cilium on the ventral surface of most vertebrate cells acts as an “antennae” that receives and transduces chemo- and mechanosensory signals.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
