  Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) for retinal neuroprotection and regeneration.
  Dr B Scheven, Dr Z Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round
MSC are increasingly gaining interest as cell therapy for neuronal tissue regeneration.
  Investigating Early Worsening of Diabetic Retinopathy with Rapid Improvement in Glycaemic Control
  Prof S Harding, Dr P Burgess, Dr U Alam, Dr A Stylianides
Applications accepted all year round
Precis. Early worsening of diabetic retinopathy following rapid improvement in glycaemic control is a well-recognised phenomenon.
  Retinal changes in children born or who have developed early onset profound deafness
  Dr C Codina, Dr D Buckley
Applications accepted all year round
This research project will build on previous work which showed retinal differences in deaf adults compared to hearing adults by a non-invasive technique of examining the retina called (ocular coherence tomography).
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: AI-Spot-Dementia (AISDA): developing machine learning algorithms to predict the risk of dementia for patients with Type 2 Diabetes
  Dr J Zhang, Prof D Steele, Dr A Doney, Prof E Trucco
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The aim of this PhD proposal is to develop novel machine learning algorithms (e.g., deep learning) to predict the risk of dementia in Type 2 diabetes, and detect early signs of such disease with association of clinical and genomic data in clinical settings.
  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.
  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.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Progenitor cells and recovery from retinal injury
  Prof S McFarlane
Applications accepted all year round
The McFarlane lab ( is interested in how nerve cells are specified and differentiate, and how nerve cells and tissues acquire their correct morphology.
  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.
  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.
