Multifunctional elastomer nanocomposites are promising in a variety of applications including stretchable electronic devices, soft robotics, actuators, sensors, wearable medical devices and soft tissue scaffolds.
  EASTBIO - An integrative approach to understanding the mechanobiology of liver regeneration
  Dr M Bernabeu, Prof N Henderson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The liver has a unique ability to regenerate [1], however in many cases of chronic liver disease this regenerative capacity is overwhelmed.
  Precision Medicine DTP - A personalised automatic approach for assessing and modelling the brain deep tissue waste drainage related structures
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr M Valdes Hernandez, Prof J Wardlaw, Dr M Bernabeu
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Previous experiments (Kress 2014) have suggested that brain features known as perivascular spaces play an important role in the clearance of metabolic waste from the brain tissue.
  Precision Medicine DTP - An integrated computational-experimental approach to identify and optimise combination drug therapy for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Prof J Fallowfield, Dr F Menolascina, Prof J Plevris
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Background. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the commonest cause of chronic liver disease (CLD), affecting 1 in 4 people worldwide.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Data-Driven Decision Making for Paediatric Triage in Acute Care
  Dr A Shah, Prof S Cunningham
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Respiratory diseases affect hundreds of millions of people in both the economically developing and developed world causing morbidity and mortality [1].
  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: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) caused by a high fat diet (HFD) is a growing major public health problem world-wide.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Taming the Hippo in mesothelioma through proteogenomics
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr C G Hansen, Prof J Lehtio
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pleural Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer, which originates in the pleural lining of the lung and is characterized by a diverse phenotype.
  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.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Determining clinically significant early stage lung cancers from image analysis
  Dr W.H. Nailon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisors. Dr Iain Philipps, Dr Duncan Mclaren & Dr Stephen Harrow. Background. Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) is an image guided radiotherapy technique, used to deliver a curative treatment for early stage lung cancer.
  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: 8 January 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].
  Precision Medicine DTP - Tumour exosome-functionalised magnetic nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging guided precision medicine and personalised breast cancer treatment
  Dr M Chen, Dr B Qian, Prof R Vellaisamy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the difficulties in cancer treatment is the tumour heterogeneity. Therefore, the conventional “one size fits all” approach and even the targeted therapeutics will not efficiently treat all cancer patients.
