Laser-based spectroscopic techniques - encompassing LIBS, Raman and deep-infrared absorption spectroscopy – offer unprecedented performance for molecular and elemental diagnostics.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  Modelling the cardiovascular side-effects of anaesthesia
  Prof I Bojak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Propofol is currently the anaesthetic most commonly employed in surgical operations. However, it has a variety of cardiovascular side-effects that are potentially life-threatening, in particular for fragile patients.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Highly efficient photons detection in retina
  Dr M Shkunov, Prof C Lane
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate understanding of nature’s exceptionally efficient phototransduction processes in animal retinas to synthetic photo-systems, leading to bio-compatible devices, such as artificial retinas, which do not require external wiring and are capable of restoring lost vision in humans.
  Sucking the energy out of TB: cryoEM and functional biophysics to target respiratory complexes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Dr J Blaza, Prof A A Antson
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a devastating disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis and is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide (World Health Organisation; 2016).

  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
  Ultrasound-triggered microbubble vibration physics towards enhanced local drug delivery
  Dr B. Helfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sonoporation, the reversible and transient opening of cell plasma membranes using ultrasound and microbubbles, is an exciting new approach to targeted and local therapeutic delivery in cancer and cardiovascular disease applications.

  Dr E De Vita, Dr K Pusparajah
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC Funded PhD scholarship available immediately, for start as soon as possible by October 2020. Later starts in October 2020 can be offered to suitable candidates.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  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.
  Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging
  Dr M Taylor, Prof R Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !.
