The effect of substrate stiffness on cardiac performance
Dr L Fabritz, Dr K Gehmlich
6 January 2019
The stiffness of the human myocardium increases as part of the ageing process. This can lead to ventricular pathologies such as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), especially in elderly in the presence of co-morbidities.
Flexible manipulators for ultrasound surgery
Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round
The student will join the multi-disciplinary research carried on at the Science and Technology of Robotics in Medicine (STORM) Lab at the University of Leeds (http://stormlabuk.com/), where we are developing soft-tethered capsule robot and surgical manipulators that can save lives of people at risk of cancer.
