  Computational Modelling of Biological Visual Processing Utilising MEA Electrode Arrays
  Prof TM McGinnity
Applications accepted all year round
Over 60 million people worldwide are blind and this number is rising as the global population ages. There are a number of major eye diseases, many of them associated with the retina and in addition many chronic diseases have manifestations in the eye.
  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.
  Spatial statistical methods and machine learning for analysis of retinal images of optic disc
  Dr G Czanner, Dr S Czanner
Applications accepted all year round
Automated disease diagnosis using medical imaging data is an increasingly important problem. For example, colour retinal images are used to detect glaucoma - a major cause of blindness.
  Deciphering the role of macrophage in retinal fibrosis secondary to neovascular age-related macular degeneration
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof H Xu, Dr M Chen, Prof D Fitzgerald
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) causes blindness and terribly affects the quality of life of those affected. Over 600,000 people in the UK and approximately 25 million worldwide have advanced AMD.
  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 (https://www.ucalgary.ca/smcfarla/) is interested in how nerve cells are specified and differentiate, and how nerve cells and tissues acquire their correct morphology.
  Investigating the role of Inter-alpha-inhibitor Heavy Chain 3 in age-related macular degeneration
  Dr S Clark, Prof T Day
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness globally. It is well established that although a multifactorial disease, AMD is largely genetically driven, with the majority of attributable genetic risk being associated with loci on chromosome 1 (Chr1) and chromosome 10 (Chr10).
  The KT Tan PhD Scholarship in Vision Sciences
  Dr R Natoli
Applications accepted all year round
If you were asked, what was the one sense that you couldn’t live without, most of you would have immediately thought of your sight.
  Development of nanomedicines for the treatment of eye diseases
  Dr VR Kearns, Dr T McDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The overall aim of this project is to develop new ways to deliver drugs to the back of the eye. Diseases involving the back of the eye can lead to sight loss, significantly reducing quality of life and economic opportunities of those affected.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round
When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
