  Beta cell regeneration for diabetes therapy
  Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells hold great potential for the creation of artifical insulin-producing beta cells to treat diabetes. Matrix and matricellular components play a critical role in supporting the differentiation of stem cells into mature, functional beta cells.
  ’Robotic Grasping using Dynamic Active-Pixel Vision Sensor’’
  Dr Y Zweiri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to develop a dynamic vision-based grasping system which can detect, track and manipulate unknown objects during a complex manufacturing or biomedical engineering processes to achieve a stable and safe manipulation in real time.
  5G-IoT in the fight against Auto-immune diseases
  Prof C Politis, Dr K Danas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The empowerment of patients and their formal and informal carers has become a prime target of healthcare strategy development in Europe and elsewhere.
  Alternative Lifestyles: Mobile Home Parks in the Metropolitan Fringe ¬ a UK/US comparison.
  Dr P Garside
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mobile homes are growing in popularity for those who cannot afford conventional housing (Yarnal and Aman, 2009). There are now approximately 250,000 people living in park homes in the UK while in the US over 22m people live in one.
  An investigation into transonic flows over high pressure gas turbine blade tip
  Dr Z Saleh, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Propulsion, in particular the gas turbine engines are a significantly important theme in the aerospace industry, any enhancement in the performance of these engines will have a great impact on the economics of the aviation sector [Stephens et al, 2007].
  Application of advanced analytical methods to study key aspects of health and disease
  Prof D Naughton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Considerable advances in the analytical capabilities of modern techniques afford a new horizon in the study of health and disease.
  Big data analytics and visualization for personalized Type 2 Diabetes treatment and management support
  Dr N Philip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type II (T2DM) is a chronic, multifactorial disease resulting in severe complications that lead to increased morbidity and even death.
  Big Data Modelling the Knowledge Economy
  Dr R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life would be much easier if organisations had a 3D map of the business landscape showing owners and entrepreneurs where best to go, how much they could benefit when they get there, as well as how much it would cost them along the way.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Building Full Body Illusion in Immersive Virtual Reality with Physically Based Avatars
  Dr J Francik, Dr D Makris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to apply the paradigm of physically based animation to control virtual reality (VR) avatars – characters that represent the player in VR.
  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.
  Characterisation of the role of Panx1/Panx2 in primary endothelial cells
  Dr M Boumechache
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pannexins are a family of proteins that are evolutionary related to the gap-junction forming proteins, innexins (1). Three members have been identified, Panx1, Panx2 and Panx3, and they show distinct tissue distribution.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Community pharmacists’ role and training in anti-doping: Extending the SAFE YOU project
  Mr P Crilly, Prof A Petroczi, Dr R Kayyali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

‘Doping’ describes the use of prohibited substances (e.g. anabolic androgenic steroids), or methods (e.g. manipulation of blood) by athletes to improve athletic performance.
