People with fibromyalgia suffer from widespread pain, exhaustion and other physical symptoms. Fibromyalgia affects about 5% of people and can cause major disability and distress.
  Novel machine learning methodologies for human action correction in videos
  Dr C Grosan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research is to motivate patients with disabilities to get better in a faster, easier and fun way. It will apply artificial intelligence methods to a software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive applications, including video cogniexergames.
  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (Laser Research and Therapy Fund) - University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumour with a median survival for adults of only 11 – 15 months. Published studies have shown that prognosis can be improved if near-complete removal of the tumour can be achieved in surgery [do we need to put references?].
  3D Genomics for a better synthetic biology and gene therapy.
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Dr A Noy, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

While genome sequencing has led to significant increases in the amount of genetic information available, we are still far from a comprehensive understanding of how genomes work.
