  Assessing the generalisability of trial findings using large orthopaedic population studies #NDORMS-2020/5
  Assoc Prof J Cook, Prof X Griffin, Assoc Prof B Ollivere
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Randomised trials (RCTs) are widely accepted as the preferred approach to evaluating health care interventions. However, the clinical relevance and generalisability of the findings are often disputed.
  Use of EUROQOL-5D (EQ-5D) in orthopaedic trauma trials #NDORMS-2020/4
  Assoc Prof J Cook, Prof X Griffin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Health related quality of life is commonly measured in clinical research studies including Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs). Perhaps the most commonly used to do this is the Euroqol-5 dimensions (EQ-5D) questionnaire (1).
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Could anti-inflammatory treatment at ACL reconstruction improve biological, functional and clinical outcomes?
  Dr D Mason, Prof C A Holt
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
  Scoliosis research and outcomes
  Dr J Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the commonest form of spinal deformity in the paediatric population. Without proper treatment, these curves may deteriorate and lead to cosmetic disfigurement, back pain, and cardiopulmonary compromise.
  Smart implant and spine AI
  Dr J Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our team is working on novel diagnosis methods and implants for spine disorders. The diagnosis tools cover form home based examinations to hospital screenings.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Making Broken Bones Antimicrobial - Preventing Osteomyelitis Using a Targeted and Mineralising Liposomal Delivery System
  Dr WN Nishio Ayre, Prof J Birchall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
  Evaluation of Metal Leaching from Implantable Medical Devices
  Dr A Managh, Dr B Cousins
Application Deadline: 28 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD studentship seeks to apply state-of the art laser ablation technology developed at Loughborough University to improve understanding of heavy metal ions in biomaterials research.
  Deformation avalanches in small-scaled components and how to prevent them
  Dr A Roy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The prediction of plastic deformation of metals has been an important research topic for decades, which primarily reduces to the question of properly understanding the motions of dislocations as the major cause of plastic flows in metals.
