  Interface formation in injection overmoulding of composite structures for aerospace and automotive applications
  Dr M Ali Aravand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Composite injection overmoulding or hybrid injection moulding is a recently developed manufacturing technique which enables fabrication of parts combining the strength and stiffness of continuous fibre reinforced composites with the complexity and high production rate of injection moulded components.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on health outcomes: does an apple aday still keep the doctor away?
  Prof J Woodside, Prof J Lovegrove, Dr A Nugent, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Although increased fruit and vegetable intake has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, this has largely been based on observational evidence, and there are a number of uncertainties regarding these observed links.
  Targeting TRPV1 channels for the restoration of microvascular barrier function in diabetic retinopathy
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof T Curtis, Dr D Simpson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetic macular oedema is a leading cause of vision loss in people with diabetes. The condition results from damage to the endothelial cells that line the small blood vessels of the retina, the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye.
  Water demand management – learning lessons from water scare countries for the UK and Ireland.
  Dr S McIlwaine
Application Deadline: 27 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many countries with limited water resources but developing economies and increasing populations, have developed financial and non-financial tools for managing water demand to encourage a more efficient allocation of water, and to optimise the value of water used.
