  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells #NDORMS-2020/6
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  (MRC DTP) Predicting failure of methotrexate therapy in rheumatoid arthritis patients: statistical approaches to multiple outcomes and repeated observations
  Dr J Sergeant, Dr G P Martin, Prof K Hyrich, Dr S Verstappen
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most patients with rheumatoid arthritis begin treatment with the drug methotrexate (MTX). MTX is cheap and is effective for many patients, but does not work for everyone.

  Prof G Collins, Dr M Schlussel, Dr P Dhiman, Dr J de Beyer
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Professor Gary Collins. 2. Dr Michael Schlussel. 3. Dr Paula Dhiman. 4. Dr Jennifer de Beyer. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are increasingly seen as solutions to many healthcare problems (e.g., for risk prediction, imaging), and the pace of development is showing no signs abating.
  Assessing the generalisability of trial findings using large orthopaedic population studies #NDORMS-2020/5
  Assoc Prof J Cook, Prof X Griffin, Assoc Prof B Ollivere
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Randomised trials (RCTs) are widely accepted as the preferred approach to evaluating health care interventions. However, the clinical relevance and generalisability of the findings are often disputed.
  Can genetics-led immunologic investigation identify novel common regulators shared across immune-mediated inflammatory diseases? #NDORMS-2020/2
  Dr L Chen, Prof P Bowness
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

1. Prof Daniel Prieto-Alhambra. 2. Dr V Strauss. 3. Dr Sara Khalid. 4. Dr Danielle Robinson. 5. Dr Laurie Tomlinson. There is a scarcity of data on the natural history of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the general population, and on markers of rapid progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
  Use of EUROQOL-5D (EQ-5D) in orthopaedic trauma trials #NDORMS-2020/4
  Assoc Prof J Cook, Prof X Griffin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Health related quality of life is commonly measured in clinical research studies including Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs). Perhaps the most commonly used to do this is the Euroqol-5 dimensions (EQ-5D) questionnaire (1).
  Utilising mechanistic mathematical models to understand cellular heterogeneity of healthy human tendons #NDORMS-2020/7
  Dr S Snelling, Dr A Cribbs, Prof S Waters
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tendons efficiently transfer force from muscles to the skeleton and are fundamental to all forms of motion. Tendons possess a distinct hierarchical organisation.
