  Effect of microstructure in the mechanical response of cost-effective biomimetic constructs for rapid wound healing
  Dr A Tsamis, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
A chronic wound is a wound that has failed to proceed through an orderly and timely process to produce anatomic and functional integrity or a wound that has proceeded through the repair process without establishing a sustained anatomic and functional result.
  Parallels between wound healing and cancer – role of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Prof A M Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Wound healing and cancer metastasis share common early signalling pathways that have led to the hypothesis that tumours are “wounds that do not heal”, a phrase first coined by Virchow in the 19th century.
  Developing a smart non-antibiotic cerium-containing biodegradable wound dressing for treating chronic ulcers
  Dr I Ortega, Dr J Shepherd
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
  Patient-reported healing outcomes for venous leg ulcers
  Prof N Cullum, Dr J Dumville
Applications accepted all year round
Venous leg ulcers are a common, chronic and debilitating condition. For patients these open wounds, caused by venous hypertension, are painful, at risk of infection and limit health-related quality of life.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Use of engineered protein polymers in wound repair
  Prof N Reynolds, Prof J Lakey, Dr P Gulati
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cutaneous wound healing is a major socioeconomic and clinical problem resulting in a significant burden, with an estimated £2.3-3.1 billion per year being spent on wound care in the UK, 3% of the NHS total expenditure.
  MRes Scholarship: Machine Learning in 3D Wound Care
  Dr R Higginson, Prof J Kenkre
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
To view this project in full, please visit. http://kess2.ac.uk/21099-2/. Here is an exciting opportunity to apply computerised machine-learning technology to improve the automated clinical assessment of chronic skin wounds and ulcers.
  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
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.
  (A*STAR) Elucidating the role of polyamines in the epidermal skin barrier
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr K Mace, Dr A Saunders
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Delayed wound healing is a major health issue affecting one in 50 people. The process of wound healing is a highly orchestrated process involving many cell types and regulatory networks.
  Investigation of the generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  Investigation of the role of molecular regulators during skin development and wound healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round
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).
