  Peptide hydrogels as a long-acting multipurpose drug delivery platform for combined contraception and HIV prevention
  Dr G Laverty, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death in women of reproductive age worldwide. HIV and unintended pregnancies are prevalent in developing nations due to the lack of effective female contraceptive choice.
  Smart implant and spine AI
  Dr J Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our team is working on novel diagnosis methods and implants for spine disorders. The diagnosis tools cover form home based examinations to hospital screenings.
  Self-powered cardiac implantable devices enabled by energy harvesting from heart motions (HFUF2019)
  Dr H Fu, Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nowadays, implantable medical devices are widely used in patient assistance, monitoring, and diagnosis. However, these devices are powered by batteries inside the implants that have limited discharging capability or via transcutaneous power leads connected to wearable batteries.
