  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.
  Etiology, assessment and treatment of scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
  Investigating the potential psychological impact of early screening and long-term monitoring for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis among patients and caregivers
  Dr K Kwan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine. The commonest form, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) develops in puberty and may progress during adolescence.
  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.
  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.
  Three-dimensional study in the non-operative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine of unknown aetiology, characterized by a lateral curvature and vertebral rotation.
  “Smart” scaffolds for preventing post-surgery infections and evaluation in a simulated in vivo microenvironment
  Dr A Anastasiou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with bacterial colonisation around implants and scaffolds is a significant clinical problem both in orthopaedics and regenerative dentistry.
  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.
  Assessing changes in wrist biomechanics during ageing and optimal design of total wrist arthroplasty and assistive rehabilitation devices
  Dr KT Bates, Dr S Fichera, Dr B Geraghty
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type
