  Childhood outcomes after dextrose gel for preventing low glucose levels in babies
  Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low blood glucose in newborn babies can cause brain damage. Dextrose gel helps prevent low glucose levels, but its effect on children’s growth and development at school age is unknown.
  Relating glucose levels in newborn babies to later developmental outcomes
  Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) is the commonest metabolic condition of the newborn. It affects up to 15% of babies, and the incidence is increasing as risk factors such as maternal diabetes and preterm birth are becoming more common.
  What do families want to know about outcomes after trials of new treatments in pregnancy and the newborn?
  Prof JE Harding, Dr C McKinlay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most new treatments of pregnant women and newborn babies are tested in clinical trials, which commonly focus on short term outcomes.
  Childhood outcomes after a trial of extra protein for babies born very preterm
  Prof JE Harding, Dr C McKinlay, Dr JA Brown, Assoc Prof T Wouldes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland has a PhD project assessing childhood outcomes after early nutritional trials.
  Do lower thresholds for diagnosis of gestational diabetes have later benefits for mothers and babies?
  Prof JE Harding, Prof B Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Women who develop diabetes in pregnancy are at risk of later type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and their babies are at risk of obesity and later diabetes.
  Does exposure to antenatal steroids alter cardiovascular risk in middle age?
  Prof JE Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corticosteroids given to women at risk of preterm birth markedly reduce the risk of serious illness in their newborn babies. However, it is possible that they increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease in adults who were exposed to steroids before birth.
  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical synthesis is under constant pressure to produce molecules in a timely, economical and sustainable fashion. In this project we will demonstrate that valuable heterocyclic molecules can be efficiently synthesized in an environmentally friendly manner by simply using electric current.
  Developing new physiological based tools and devices to improve heart function
  Dr R Ramchandra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is a naturally occurring respiratory related modulation of heart rate giving rise to heart rate variability.
  Identifying new therapeutic targets for diabetic heart disease
  Dr K Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work in the field of cellular and molecular cardiac research in the Department of Physiology, University of Auckland.
