  Investigation and treatment of trabecular meshwork fibrosis using 3D glaucoma models.
  Dr L Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The development of safe and effective therapies to treat fibrosis is a major priority for patients with glaucoma. This ocular disease is characterised by elevated intraocular eye pressure (IOP), resulting from ineffective drainage of the aqueous humour.
  KESS 2: A new approach to screening for prostate cancer
  Dr L A J Mur
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As populations age in Western societies, prostate cancer (PC) represents an increasing health risk as about 99% of cases occur in males over the age of 50.
  Multiscale and Multiphysics Optimization of an Implantable Biohybrid Lung (WS16)
  Prof S Korossis, Dr A Roy, Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 16 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
  Design and Development of Artificial Blood Vessels For Use in the Treatment of Peripheral Artery Disease
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable tissue engineering treatment options for peripheral artery disease, with many unanswered fundamental questions.
  Design and Development of Artificial Nerve Grafts
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable treatment options for nerve damage and disease in humans.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  PhD in Biomedical Engineering: High-throughput Microfluidic Droplet Sorting for Industrial Applications
  Prof T Franke
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A graduate studentship leading to the award of a PhD is available to work at the University of Glasgow in the School of Engineering, with Prof.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Defining the microbiome environment in patients with biliary tract cancer and its implications for therapy
  Prof J W Valle, Dr M McNamara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) encompass cancers of the extrahepatic/intrahepatic bile ducts, gallbladder and ampullary carcinoma. The only potentially curative option is surgical resection; median overall survival (OS) in the advanced setting.
  Harnessing inflammation to repair extracellular-matrix rich tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Dr G Lopez-Castejon, Dr C Platt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is thought to play a key role in mediating many aspects of both age and disease. The aberrant expression of tissue proteases is a hallmark of inflammation.
  In vitro models of type 1 diabetes.
  Prof E Stanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which the immune system destroys the cells that produce insulin, the hormone controlling the level of glucose in the blood stream.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  Homeostatic balancing of neuronal excitation and inhibition in vivo
  Dr A Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal excitation and inhibition are very carefully balanced in the brain, and perturbed excitation/inhibition (E/I) balance has been linked to diseases such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
  Identifying new drugs to combat the virulence mechanisms underlying multidrug-resistant typhoid.
  Dr D Humphreys
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multidrug-resistant typhoid. --------------------------------------------. The world is facing an epidemic of multidrug-resistant (MDR) typhoid fever.
  Reactive Inkjet Printing of Tissue Culture Scaffolds
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

3D scaffolds with excellent biocompatibility, biodegradability, sophisticated 3D structures and appropriate mechanical properties are particularly desired as in vitro models in biomedical research and are highly attractive in clinical applications (e.g.
