  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  Novel polypeptide bioinks for 3D printing of bioactive scaffolds for tissue engineering applications.
  Prof A Heise, Dr F O'Brien, Prof S Cryan
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of defined three-dimensional (3D) architecture fabrication for tissue engineering has been a recent emergence within the field.
  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
  Graphene-Modified Nanoelectrode Sensors for In-Situ Sensing in Regenerative Medicine and Electro-Catalysis
  Dr R Menzel
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will adapt a novel nanosensor technology, based on ultrafine nanoelectrodes, to enable accurate in-situ measurement of diagnostic, small-molecule analytes in biological and electro-catalytic systems.
  Nanopore barcoding for detecting metastases in liquid biopsies
  Dr M Castronovo
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Liquid biopsy is set to revolutionized the capacity to detect, assess and monitor the evolution of cancer. This technology has a central role to play in precision medicine and population screening approaches, but remains limited by sensitivity and specificity.
  Engineering functional partial joint replacement: a soft solution to a hard problem
  Dr M Bryant
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arthritis is a common problem and typically treatment includes replacing the articular surfaces with hard metal on both sides of the joint with intervening plastic or ceramic.
  How do membrane channels sense and respond to forces?
  Dr G Heath, Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mechanosensitive channels are found throughout all kingdoms of life acting as sensors for a number of systems including touch, hearing, gravity, osmotic pressure and cardiovascular regulation.
  Single-molecule fluorescence-activated cell sorting (smFACS): sorting cells molecule by molecule
  Dr A Ponjavic
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop a novel microfluidic device that can characterise and sort cells, with unprecedented (single-molecule) sensitivity.
  Optimizing muscle mechanics for smart prosthetic (SL3UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb (SL2UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
