PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  Utilising mechanistic mathematical models to understand cellular heterogeneity of healthy human tendons #NDORMS-2020/7
  Dr S Snelling, Dr A Cribbs, Prof S Waters
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

Tendons efficiently transfer force from muscles to the skeleton and are fundamental to all forms of motion. Tendons possess a distinct hierarchical organisation.
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.

  Precision Medicine DTP - Blood flow and solute transport in human placental vascular networks: an in-silico approach to characterising pregnancy pathologies
  Dr T Krueger, Dr M Bernabeu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The human placenta performs diverse functions later taken on by several different organs. In particular, it mediates the exchange of vital solutes, including respiratory gases and nutrients, between the mother and the developing fetus.

  Dr A Abass, Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to design a human eye topographer that able to scan the eye topography without tilting.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Mapping the Spatial and Temporal Progression of Enamel Biomineralisation using Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction
  Dr M Al-Jawad, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Human dental enamel formation begins in utero and for most teeth takes several years to complete. It is a complex biological, physicochemical process where mineralisation progresses heterogeneously in space and time.
