  What is the best way for healthcare professionals to communicate changes in estimated risk of breast cancer?
  Prof D French, Prof G Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Risk estimation models for common multifactorial diseases such as breast cancer are often used, e.g. in Family History Clinics to inform decisions about prevention options.
  Maximising acceptability of risk stratification in the NHS breast screening programme
  Research Group: School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr J Waller, Dr S Scott
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To start. 1 January 2020 (negotiable). Background. Women aged 50-70 years in England are offered 3-yearly breast screening but there is increasing interest in stratifying screening to women’s individual breast cancer risk.
  Is disease risk conferred during childhood set in stone? Using genetics to understand how modifiable lifestyle changes can help prevent disease in later life
  Dr T Richardson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bristol is offering a 3.5 year full time PhD in research around Population Health to start in 2019. This studentship is funded through GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
  A Life Course Approach to Understand Clustering of Behavioural Risk Factors for NCDs in United Kingdom
  Dr M Mathur, Prof D Taylor-Robinson
Application Deadline: 9 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non communicable diseases (NCDs) namely, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and oral diseases are the leading causes of death and disability globally and impose a significant threat to human health and development.
  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
  Biomechanical risk factors in ulcerated and non-ulcerated high risk patients with diabetes
  Prof J Woodburn, Dr J Hurst, Dr D Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19017. The Scottish Diabetes Group Risk Stratification (or traffic light) system can classify patients at high risk even without ulcer history.

  Dr M Bishop, Dr P Lamata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Clinical Motivation – Re-entrant ventricular arrhythmias are responsible for over 80,000 instances of sudden cardiac death (SCD) annually in the UK.
  Trajectories of modifiable risk factors and their influences on disease outcomes: using genetics in life course epidemiology
  Dr S Burgess, Dr J Barrett
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Questions about how risk factors influence disease outcomes are fundamental to epidemiology. However, these questions are difficult to answer, as relevant data are usually observational, and thus associations are not necessarily a reliable guide for causal relationships.
  Prevention of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Pregnant Women; Targeting Early Pregnancy Intervention to Women at Risk
  Dr S White, Dr A Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity in pregnancy increases the risk of gestational diabetes (GDM) and associated adverse outcomes. NICE guidelines recommend that all obese women have an oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks' gestation for detection of GDM.
  Unified whole-system of environmental risk assessment for contaminated-lands and a corresponding computer-aided model/tool (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/BUTT)
  Dr T E Butt
Applications accepted all year round
