  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  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 generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  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).
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  Investigating the role of connexins in the gingival response to the oral microbiota
  Dr J Butcher, Dr C Wright, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19005. Periodontal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory and bone destructive disease that imposes a substantial social and economic burden, and has been linked to the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  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.
  Long Period Hydrogel Grating on Optical Fibre for Biosensing

Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project will bring together the expertise of Dr Ruchi Gupta (University of Birmingham, UoB) and Dr Serhiy Korposh (University of Nottingham, UoN) in hydrogel gratings [1] and optical fibres [2] to deliver a sensing platform.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
