PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
  Investigating the potential psychological impact of early screening and long-term monitoring for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis among patients and caregivers
  Dr K Kwan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine. The commonest form, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) develops in puberty and may progress during adolescence.
  Scoliosis research and outcomes
  Dr J Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the commonest form of spinal deformity in the paediatric population. Without proper treatment, these curves may deteriorate and lead to cosmetic disfigurement, back pain, and cardiopulmonary compromise.
  Three-dimensional study in the non-operative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine of unknown aetiology, characterized by a lateral curvature and vertebral rotation.
  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.
  Postgraduate Scholarship in Computational Imaging for Fibre-Optic Microscopy
