  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Optical coherence tomography dynamic light scattering for the measurement of protein aggregation and particulate formation in biologic fluids
  Dr T Waigh, Prof J Lu, Dr M Dickinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are susceptible to aggregation during their production which can reduce their bioactivity and prevent their effective formulation in pharmaceutical products.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Analysing the efficiency of protein secretion using Lattice Lightsheet Microscopy
  Prof V Allan, Prof M Lowe, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein-based biopharmaceuticals are of tremendous importance both for providing disease treatments, and for the UK economy. They are typically manufactured using mammalian host cells, but some are much harder to produce than others.
  (MRC DTP) Imaging the microvasculature in preeclampsia
  Dr A Murray, Dr Stephanie Worton, Dr E Johnstone, Dr J Myers
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Preeclampsia, new onset high blood pressure and protein in the urine in pregnancy, occurs in 3% of pregnancies and is a common cause of maternal and infant illness and death worldwide.
  Machine learning to locate defects in ultrasonic inspection images
  Prof T Cootes, Dr M Fergie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is important that manufactured components are inspected to identify defects which may cause early failure, particularly in safety critical systems.
  A New Generation of Terahertz Emitters: Exploiting Electron Spin
  Dr P Nutter, Dr D Graham, Prof T Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, the emission of extremely broadband electromagnetic radiation, spanning from the mid- to far-infrared spectral regime and covering the so-called ‘terahertz gap’ in the spectrum, has been observed from ferromagnetic thin-film structures when exposed to femtosecond pulses of light.
