  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Investigating a reading test as a measure of the efficacy of ocular lubricant treatment in individuals with dry eye disease
  Prof C Dickinson, Prof R Harper, Prof F Carley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The front surface of the eye is covered by a thin layer of tears to lubricate it, to help avoid infection, and to create a precise optical surface to help with the formation of clear images on the back of the eye.
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
