  Visual function from the retina to the cortex
  Dr E Roesch
Applications accepted all year round
"Conventional wisdom limits the function of the retina to the mere capture of static pixel images that are than transmitted to the brain for further processing.
  Influence of melanopsin-containing ganglion cell photoreceptors on the physiology of the mammalian retina
  Dr M Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
The neural network of the mammalian retina is one of the most studied within the central nervous system. However, surprises are still common, with a third type of photoreceptor discovered in recent years.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Discovery of composite biomarkers and the role on the retina in risk prediction for systemic diseases using deep learning
  Prof E Trucco, Dr A Doney
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Aims and objectives. The project will use deep learning (DL) techniques to discover combinations of phenotypic and genotypic features working as predictive risk scores for high-incidence conditions (e.g.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Virtual biopsy with the Eye – using machine learning to detect and trackchronic kidney disease
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr T MacGillivray, Dr N Dhaun, Prof B Dhillon
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Industrial Partner. Optos. Background. CKD affects 6-11% of the world’s population [1]. Hypertension is an independent risk factor for CKD progression and is a frequent finding in patients with CKD.
  The eye as a window to the central nervous system – an artificial intelligence approach to biomarker discovery for MS
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr T MacGillivray, Prof B Dhillon
Application Deadline: 7 February 2019
The eye, with common embryonic origins to the brain and other shared anatomical features such as a blood–tissue barrier and nerves, is an area of the central nervous system amenable to non-invasive study.
  Development of scanning laser ophthalmoscopy to improve treatment in Diabetic Retinopathy
  Dr T Thevar, Dr I J Crane
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a frequent microvascular complication in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Early detection or prediction of onset is important as impaired function in the eye cannot be restored.
  Deformable 3D reconstruction of endoluminal anatomy by miniature steerable chip-on-tip endoscopy
  Dr C Bergeles
Applications accepted all year round
1st Supervisor - Dr Christos Bergeles. 2nd Supervisor - Professor Kawal Rhode. Chip-on-tip steerable endoscopes are rapidly improving due to tandem innovation in robotics technology and highly-integrated cameras.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Image analysis and machine learning for OCT image sequences
  Dr S King, Dr K Baillie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisor. Dr Ian MacCormick. Background. The eye provides a window through which structural and functional characteristics of blood vessels can be visualised and quantified using new technology.
  Structural and functional studies on proteins required for vision
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J.J.B. Cockburn, Prof C A Johnson, Prof N A Ranson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Rod and cone cells in the retina detect light using an elaborate photoreceptor, allowing us to see. Development and maintenance of the photoreceptor outer segment requires proteins located at its base that form a specialized structure called the connecting cilium.
  Characterising the mechanisms of optic flow parsing
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round
Humans move in their environment. As a result complex patterns of motion called optic flow arise on the retina. It is well known that the brain has regions that are sensitive to optic flow, however there is some debate about their functional role.
