  Tissue engineering replacement grafts for corrective heart surgery using somatic stem cells
  Dr T Ghorbel, Prof M Caputo
Applications accepted all year round
In Europe and North America, congenital heart defects (CHD) are the primary cause of infant deaths. The primary treatment for CHD is surgery but the major problem with surgery for such defects is the lack of living replacement materials with the capacity of growth and regeneration.
  Optimising Repair of the Thoracic Wall Following Thoracic Surgery
  Dr C Bergeles
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Professor Kawal Rhode. Second Supervisor. Dr Christos Bergeles. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK.
  Computational modelling of laparoscopic surgery
  Dr J Cater, Dr C Spence
Applications accepted all year round
Current laparoscopic surgery technology continues to present challenges that affect patient health and a surgeon’s ability to perform surgical procedures.
  Engineering Doctorate (EngD): Biomedical imaging and signal processing for the intra-operative detection of cancerous tissue (Lightpoint Medical)
  Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round
The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry. Students spend about 75% of their time working directly with a company in addition to receiving advanced-level training from a broad portfolio of technical and business courses.
  A statistical parametric tool for flatfoot surgery
  Dr P Zioupos, Dr S Junaid
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
The main purpose of the PhD is to investigate the key parameters impacting surgical outcomes with the aim of improving surgical planning and prognosis.
  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.
  PhD in open source robotic 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/) and will work on the DaVinci Research Kit (http://research.intusurg.com/dvrkwiki/).
  Immunostaging for melanoma to accurately predict the risk of relapse after surgery
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round
This project will utilise a large biobank of clinically annotated samples from patients with melanoma at high risk of relapse after surgery to develop a signature that predicts risk of relapse.
  Multi-phase CFD modelling of biological tissue (with applications in liver surgery)
  Dr S Van Loo
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been used extensively in medicine to model the flow of blood in large arteries and veins and in the heart, but our understanding of the spatial propagation of body fluids on the microscopic level is more limited.
