  Deciphering the mechanism of enclysis: new tools for cell biology in live human tissues.
  Dr Z Stamataki, Prof J Preece, Prof D Hodson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We recently discovered that hepatocytes, epithelial cells that make up 80% of the liver, can preferentially engulf and delete T cell subsets that dampen inflammation (regulatory T cells, Tregs).
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  How do RNA structures in the Chikungunya virus genome control virus replication in human and mosquito host cells?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.K Tuplin, Prof A Whitehouse
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chikungunya virus is a mosquito-transmitted arbovirus that re-emerged as an epidemic in 2005 around the Indian Ocean, before spreading across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.
  Applying human drug discovery approaches to kauri die back disease
  Prof M Glass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phytophthora agathidicida is currently threatening New Zealand’s most iconic tree, the kauri. Current efforts to halt its spread through New Zealand forests are failing.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Sudden cardiac death in human athletes – electrophysiological and molecular insights from the animal models
  Dr K Jeevaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting fully funded PhD studentship opportunity exploring the electrophysiological and molecular profile of the equine heart as a model for high performing human athletes.

  Novel machine learning methodologies for human action correction in videos
  Dr C Grosan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research is to motivate patients with disabilities to get better in a faster, easier and fun way. It will apply artificial intelligence methods to a software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive applications, including video cogniexergames.
  Innovating an anti-tilt human eye topographer
  Dr A Abass, Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to design a human eye topographer that able to scan the eye topography without tilting.
  Deciphering the mechanisms behind DNA repair pathways crucial for preventing cancers
  Prof J Rouse
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our chromosomes are frequently subjected to insults that damage DNA, and if not rectified the resulting DNA lesions can cause genome mutations and human disease.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Neural mechanisms underlying pain interference with motor learning in the human spinal cord
  Prof D Falla, Dr A Khatibi
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves simultaneous imaging of the brain and spinal cord using Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Humans. The successful applicant will conduct a project evaluating changes in the connectivity between the brain and the spinal cord following the acquisition of new motor skills during the experience of pain.
