  CardioSim: Experimental and Numerical Simulation of Cardiac Pathologies
  Dr C Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD project is develop novel experimental and computational models of cardiac pathologies. Background. High-fidelity benchtop cardiac models enable efficient medical device testing, interventional training, and procedure demonstration.
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
  Do Novel Post-Translationally modified peptides Exacerbate COPD?
  Dr EP Reeves, Dr G McElvaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, is a leading cause of disability and mortality.
  Targeting mRNA polyadenylation as novel treatment strategy in epilepsy
  Dr T Engel, Dr J Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epileptogenesis, the process leading to a reduced threshold for seizures after transient brain insults, is associated with large-scale changes in gene expression and processes, such as selective neuronal loss, gliosis and synaptic plasticity which ultimately lead to the formation of seizuregenerating neuronal networks, and the development of epilepsy.
  The correlation between, subepidermal moisture measurement, epidermal hydration, temperature, pain, ultrasound and the pro-inflammatory cytokines, IL-1α and Total protein in the early detection of pressure ulcers
  Prof Z Moore, Dr D Patton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pressure ulcers (PU), are localised areas of tissue damage arising due to excess pressure and shearing forces, ranging in severity from superficial tissue damage, to full-scale tissue destruction.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 the role of the tumour suppressor Hippo pro-apoptotic network in cancer
  Dr D Gomez
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At SBI we believe that studying the dynamic control of cell-signalling is key for understanding many diseases, including cancer.
  Emerging hypoxic signalling in human cancers
  Dr S Rey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our goal is to elucidate novel mechanisms of oxygen sensing in cancer cells. In particular, the student will focus upon exploring hypoxia- inducible factor (HIF)-α independent mechanisms, with potential implications for targeted cancer therapies aimed at decreasing recurrence, resistance and metastasis.
  Gene therapy of Huntington’s disease: can we restore cognitive function through RNA-based treatment and cholinergic neuromodulation?
  Dr M Tsanov
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project explores the gene therapy of Huntington’s disease. We will compare the patterns of motor and cognitive improvement in rodent models of Huntington’s disease exposed to RNA-based gene therapy.
  Immunopathogenesis of Asthma
  Dr S Lalor
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An opportunity is available for a highly motivated PhD candidate to pursue interdisciplinary research investigating local and systemic immune responses to human respiratory tract bacteria, and how this impacts the development of allergic sensitization and asthma.
  Insulin signalling and behavioural rigidity
  Dr J Glennon
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary success depends on being flexible and adapting to your environment. Our research suggests that insulin signalling is a key mechanism underlying behavioural inflexibility in Alzheimer’s Disease, obsessive compulsive disorder, type 1 myotonic dystrophy and autism.
  Mathematical modelling of cancer signalling for precision medicine
  Dr D Fey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells process intra- and extracellular signals to make vital cell-fate decisions. In diseases such as cancer, these decisions go awry due to the dysregulation of the intracellular communication networks.
  Treatment of Diabetic Complications with Synthetic Pro-Resolving Lipids
  Dr E Brennan
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes patients have an increased risk of developing microvascular complications including kidney, nerve and eye damage. Diabetes patients are also at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).
