  Nano-hydrogel bandage for non-invasive Raman monitoring of chronic wound healing (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wounds (CW), wounds that persist more than 3 months, have been referred to as a major and snowballing public health burden which adversely affects the quality of life.
  Developing a smart non-antibiotic cerium-containing biodegradable wound dressing for treating chronic ulcers
  Dr I Ortega, Dr J Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
  Targeting miR-29 in cutaneous wounds
  Dr S Kurinna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of efficient strategies for the improvement of wound repair requires understanding of the mechanisms underlying normal and impaired healing.
  KESS2 Scholarship: Machine Learning in 3D Wound Care (MastersbyResearch)
  Prof J Kenkre
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Here is an exciting opportunity to apply computerised machine-learning technology to improve the automated clinical assessment of chronic skin wounds and ulcers.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Biofilm disruption as an initial step in a novel strategy for treatment of chronic wounds based on multi-functional liposomal nanocarriers
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr X Liu, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cost to the NHS of caring for patients with chronic wounds is conservatively estimated to be £4.5-5.7bn/year, or around 4% of the total expenditure on health.
  Nanoparticle-based Therapeutics to Combat Multidrug Resistance and Biofilms in Chronic Wound Infections
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr Z Ong, Dr J R McLaughlan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Investigation of the Role of Long Non Coding RNA During Skin Development and Wound Healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin morphogenesis occurs under stringent control of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and result in a formation of the epidermis and a number of different skin appendages (including, the hair follicle, HF).
  Fibrosis in diabetes: the role of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins
  Dr C Wright, Dr S Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

REF SHLS20004 Wright. Treatment of chronic wounds costs around 1% of NHS budget and there is an imperative to develop new therapies.
  Mathematical modelling of wounding response in plants (BLYTHMU20SF)
  Dr M Blyth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a plant is wounded, for example by cutting, a signal is sent out from the wound site to other parts of the plant. However, the mechanism by which this signal is transported is not well understood.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Improving responses to skin & soft tissues infections among people who inject drugs.
  Prof V D Hope, Dr H R Sumnall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin & soft tissues infections (SSTIs) among people who inject drugs (PWID) are a substantial health problem.[1] They result from the difficulties in maintaining good injection practice and hygiene in the environments were illicit psychoactive drugs (such as heroin) are typically consumed.
  Integrated analysis of the Intra-tumour Heterogeneity of Oral squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr I Sequeira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a heterogeneous disease with unique genomic and phenotypic features that differ between individual patients and among different regions within the same tumour.
  Exploring the epidemiology and care of complex wounds in lower and middle income countries
  Prof J Dumville, Prof N Cullum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex wounds cannot be closed, for example by sutures, staples or glue, but are left open to heal. These open wounds, which include leg, pressure and foot ulcers, can be painful, at risk of infection and limit people’s health-related quality of life.
