  Dr P Rocha
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project team. Dr Paulo Rocha, Dr Nuno Reis & Dr Brian Jones. Project enquiries. Dr Paulo Rocha ([email protected]). PROJECT. Bacterial infections with ‘super-bugs’ such as Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) or Septicaemia affect millions of people worldwide.
  Role of Bacteria-Purinoceptor Interactions in Pathological Changes Leading to Implant Failure
  Prof D Gorecki, Prof C Louca
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Professor Darek Gorecki and Professor Chris Luca.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Mathematical and statistical evaluation of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) data for the management of cancer
  Dr M Nath, Prof A Welch, Dr F McKiddie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining advanced imaging technologies with patient-level characteristics, it is now feasible to diagnose, monitor and evaluate the prognosis of cancer patients and adopt appropriate treatment strategies tailored to individual patient leading to the concept of personalised medicine.
  Understanding the biomechanical changes associated with a popular walking programme to optimise care for individuals with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr K Martin, Dr D Blana
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting, interdisciplinary project that brings together social science, data science and engineering, and will give the student invaluable skills for a career in academia or the medical technology sector.
  Adhesion of Tissues to Percutaneous Implants
  Dr M Roldo, Prof G Blunn, Dr G Tozzi
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health and will be supervised by Dr Marta Roldo, Prof Gordon Blunn and Dr Gianluca Tozzi.
  Nanotopographical modulation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface topography has been known to alter bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. It has become evident that surface hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and effective contact area are the two main factors that are responsible for the different bacterial adhesive behaviour on surfaces.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Gut bacteria and their DNA as elicitors of host beneficial responses
  Dr J Gutierrez-Merino, Dr G W Griffith, Dr H Davey
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. The incidence of gut inflammatory disorders such as such as the post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (PI-IBS) is increasing globally, with devastating consequences in animal production and public health.
  Markerless motion capture for healthcare applications
  Dr D Blana, Dr N Oren
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many disorders and injuries result in abnormal movement that impairs function and affects quality of life.
  Visible-light-activated photocatalytic coatings to combat hospital infections
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contamination of hospital surfaces plays an important role in the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens. Traditional cleaning and disinfection methods are proven largely ineffective for complete decontamination of hospital surfaces by microbes, particularly multidrug-resistant ‘superbugs’.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Developing a smart non-antibiotic cerium-containing biodegradable wound dressing for treating chronic ulcers
  Dr I Ortega, Dr J Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
