  An investigation of Demodex mites in optometric practice, including their impact on ocular surface inflammation and current treatment methods.
  Dr E Martin, Dr S Hagan, Dr I Pearce
Application Deadline: 14 April 2019
Project Description Background. Demodex folliculorum mites can be found in the eyelash follicles of humans. These are common organisms found more frequently with increasing age and in 95% of those over the age of 70 (Czepita et al, 2005).
  Eye care service delivery and outcomes in developed and developing countries
  Dr S Jonuscheit, Dr N Strang
Application Deadline: 14 April 2019
Project Description Background. Worldwide, about 400 million people are visually impaired or blind, constituting considerable demand for eye care globally.(Bourne et al.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Dr N Strang
Application Deadline: 14 April 2019
The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  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.
