  Precision Medicine DTP - Developing data science approaches to improve paediatric critical care patient flows and its related health economics benefits in Scotland
  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
  Dr T Lo, Dr A Manataki, Dr L Moss, Dr A Neilson
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Paediatric critical care (PCC) is a highly valued specialist service that saves infants and children’s life. Over the past decade, the demand of PCC beds exceeds the expected population growth in the UK.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Developing Personalised Precision Medical Approaches for Paediatric Intensive Care through Data Informatics and Machine Learning on the Impact of Acute Clinical and Physiological Phenotypes on Outcome
  Dr J Escudero Rodriguez, Dr T Lo, Dr L Moss
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Routine clinical practice generates a large amount of data that is under-used for research and quality improvement[1].
  Ankle moment contribution in everyday tasks: effects of ageing
  Research Group: Medical Engineering
  Dr J Buckley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a fall on stairs every 90 seconds in the UK, and an estimated 250,000 non-fatal accidents which are serious enough to merit a trip to A&E.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  The application of epidemiology and informatics to heart failure using the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD)
  Prof U Kadam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HF is a complex clinical syndrome with different pathophysiological origins. Pre-conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and a range of risk factors include obesity and poor lipid profile, different lifestyle or socio-economic factors such as deprivation as well as healthcare factors.
  A PhD applying machine learning techniques to Next Generation Sequencing Big Data to improve the prediction of prostate cancer patient outcome (BrewerU20FMH)
  Dr D Brewer, Prof C Cooper
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and an estimated 307,000 men annually die from PCa worldwide.
  (EPSRC DTP) Explainable AI for Multimodal Data Integration in Biomedical Applications
  Dr C Yau, Dr D Wong
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

State-of-the-art black box AI algorithms have revolutionised our ability to construct algorithms for use with complex data sets.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development
  Dr K Hentges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
  Understanding and combatting antimicrobial resistance plasmids
  Dr M Buckner, Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory focuses on deciphering gene regulatory networks that govern complex programmes during early vertebrate development.
