  Stress responses in the diabetic heart: Effects of exercise training and glycaemic control
  Dr C Baldi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diabetic heart, even before developing disease, has impaired relaxation and contractility. These changes limit the work capacity of the heart (maximal cardiac output) and limit the functional capacity of people with diabetes.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Changes in cerebral blood flow trigger an increase in sympathetic nerve activity – implications following acute myocardial infarction
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart function is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. Following a heart attack (myocardial infarction. MI), cardiac sympathetic nerve activity (cSNA) becomes dangerously elevated, triggering irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) that often prove fatal.
  Modulation of the pulmonary vasculature in health and disease
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pulmonary microcirculation is tightly modulated by the autonomic nervous system, the pulmonary vessel endothelium and the vascular smooth muscle.
  Central modulation of cardiac Sympathetic Nerve Activity following acute MI
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of people that suffer a heart attack (acute myocardial infarction; MI) die within the first few hours following the MI.
  Understanding the role of lymphatic endothelial cell dysfunction in mediating diabetic heart disease
  Dr R Katare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, affects endothelial cells function leading to a condition called diabetic microangiopathy. Majority of the focus is on understanding diabetes-induced changes in arterial or venous endothelial cells.
  Novel approaches for treating cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Erickson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death throughout most of the world, and existing therapeutic options are unsuitable for a large percentage of patients.
  Understanding and controlling cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate control of calcium within the cells of the heart.
