  Older Adults, Pain, and Dementia: how do older adults with and without a dementia diagnosis experience and report pain?
  Dr R Edwards
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project investigating pain experiences in older adults. Older adults are more prone to experiencing pain (Satghare et al., 2016), and also make up approximately 20% of our society (ONS, 2017), but there is minimal research conducted in this area.

  Dr M Nassar
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Pain is an important warning system to guard against tissue damage. Pathological pain, however, has no warning value and has huge economical, social and personal costs on society.
  Spinal cord neuronal dysfunction in diabetic neuropathic pain
