Domain-aware deep learning models for fast and accurate biomechanical simulation

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Background. Physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) provide a powerful means of incorporating domain knowledge into the training of deep learning models, so as to improve their accuracy and reliability in simulating complex real systems. Read more

Stem Cells: Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases

Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide. Read more

Cancer: Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC). Read more

Enabling stratification of intervertebral disc repair

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
A funded PhD is available to evaluate minimally invasive treatments for spinal disc degeneration using experimental and computational engineering methods. Read more

Understanding skin ageing using a vascularised human skin equivalent model

The main purpose of this project is to develop a skin equivalent model that incorporates microvasculature, which will then be used to address several important questions in the area of skin ageing. Read more

Application of animal corneal cells for skin regeneration, tissue engineering and wound healing enhancement

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Engineering of biological skin substitutes has progressed over the years from individual applications of skin cells, or biopolymer scaffolds, to combinations of cells and scaffolds for treatment, healing, and closure of acute and chronic skin wounds. Read more

3D Electrospinning - shaping the structure of tissue engineering scaffolds

  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
Electrospinning applies a high voltage to a polymer solution to create fine fibres that form non-woven mats. These can be used as scaffolds for tissue engineering, acting as the extracellular matrix and supporting the cells. Read more

Ankle moment contribution in everyday tasks: effects of ageing

  Research Group: Medical Engineering
There is a fall on stairs every 90 seconds in the UK, and an estimated 250,000 non-fatal accidents which are serious enough to merit a trip to A&E. Read more

Glioblastoma: A Nanotechnology Approach for Glioblastoma Targeted Therapy

  Research Group: Medical Engineering
Glioblastoma is a type of brain cancer. It’s the most common type of malignant brain tumor among adults and it is usually very aggressive, which means it can grow fast and spread quickly. Read more

Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
