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.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Investigating the biomedical implication of microplastic accumulation on human epithelial barriers and associated effects on immune function, fibrosis and premature tissue ageing
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Dyer, Dr D Green, Prof S Cellek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  The role of endothelial kugeln in human neurological diseases
  Prof T Chico
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We recently discovered a new behaviour of the brain blood vessels. These develop transient spherical protrusions that have never been observed on any cell type before.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Maturing stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to provide improved models of arrhythmia
  Dr S Harmer, Prof J C Hancox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Development of new anti-obese strategies by conversion of white fat to brown fat
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In contrast to white adipose tissue (WAT) that stores energy, brown adipose tissue (BAT) is specialized for energy dissipation and considered as a potential weapon to combat obesity by uncoupling mitochondrial respiratory chain and ATP synthesis.
  Ligament and tendon repair using a specific population of joint progenitor cells
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ligaments and tendons stabilize the musculoskeletal system, controlling mobility. Anterior cruciate ligament in knee joints restrict the dimension of joint movement, while Achilles tendon transmit forces from calf muscle to bone enabling locomotion of ankle joints.
  Barcoding atherosclerotic plaque cells: single cell sequencing to reveal heterogeneity and functional impact of atherosclerotic plaque cells
  Dr J Sluimer
Application Deadline: 16 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A position for a PhD-student is available in dr. Sluimer’s team in the experimental vascular Pathology Dept. (http://www.pathologie.mumc.nl/medewerkers/sluimer).
  Assessing brain blood vessel function in atrial fibrillation using magnetic resonance imaging
  Assoc Prof JP Fisher, Dr C Morgan, Prof D Dubowitz
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain possess critical regulatory mechanisms to ensure adequate compensatory blood vessel dilation and increased perfusion (known as “cerebrovascular reactivity”).

  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Main Aim. To identify genetic and non-genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke are the leading causes of mortality worldwide and are expected to keep rising.
