  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.
  Bioactive ceramic coatings with antimicrobial properties to increase orthopaedic implant longevity
  Prof H Zreiqat, Prof C Dunstan, Dr C Berndt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed Training. An HDR will develop extensive skills in biomaterials processing and characterisation techniques, to develop new ceramic coatings with antimicrobial properties.
  Biomechanical Evaluation of Reality-Based Navigation in Total Hip Replacement
  Dr A Lennon, Prof Nicholas Dunne
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

While total hip replacement is a very successful orthopaedic procedure, there continues to be considerable unwanted surgical variation with regard to restoration of femoral head centre (FHC).
  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.
  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.
  Modelling and simulation of the laser ablation process
  Dr S Goel
Application Deadline: 15 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

LASERS are the backbones of present day innovative engineering applications. Ranging from eye surgery to manipulation of coatings and surfaces for biomedical implants and aerospace structures or for the creation of smart materials or nano materials, their application is widespread.
  Bio-inspired and biomimetic ceramic composites for medical applications
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural structural materials such as seashell nacre, human teeth and bones exhibit remarkable mechanical properties i.e. with combined high strength and toughness.
  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  Apply biomechanical finite-element analysis and computer simulation techniques into the diagnostic software for further improving the validity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Basic and clinical studies on spinal cord injury
  Dr G Shea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury has a devastating effect on affected individuals, who are often of working age and subject to a lifetime of dependency and debilitation.
  Invent a novel AI-based method for osteoporotic fracture risk assessment by Localized Bone Mineral Density and Radiomics Biomarker analysis, and further improve the accuracy and sensitivity of the system.
  Prof W Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of osteoporotic fracture cases is ever increasing, and it ranks among the top-five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay.
  Manipulating bone tissue regeneration by bivalent cations
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone healing or repair is a biological process that can take weeks to months and patients suffering from bone fractures usually need extended time off work and away from normal activities.
  Understanding the origins of implant derived debris
  Dr M Bryant, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 19 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has been proposed that taper corrosion in metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (THA) has the potential to cause adverse local tissue reactions.
  Surface functionalized nanodiamonds for antimicrobial applications
  Prof H Ye, Prof MR Oggioni
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objective. The project is to develop novel surface functionalized nanodiamonds for antimicrobial applications against antibiotic resistant bacteria.
