  Nature Inspired Surgical Tools (EPS2020/44)
  Prof M Desmulliez
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The stings of insects provide a wealth of information on how to design and manufacture better cutting surgical tools. By close examination of specimen obtained from museums, lessons from the profiles of stings of insects will be applied towards the manufacture and tests of novel surgical blades.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The role of circular RNAs in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease
  Dr M Jackson, Dr M Santibanez-Koref, Dr G Hudson, Dr O Izuogy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK alone there are currently 145,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In an increasingly aged population, this number is rising, with on average 2 people every hour told that they have PD.
  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
  Childhood growth impairment and markers of environmental enteropathy
  Prof P Cooper, Dr I Chis Ster
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exclusive opportunity for a student interested in bridging statistical epidemiology with data collection and laboratory training.
  Defining disease mechanisms and treatment responses in mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy (MNGIE) by multi-omics profiling and bioinformatical analysis
  Dr B Bax, Dr Y Jamshidi
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical trials require validated endpoint measures to provide an assessment of the success of the study treatment. The selection of trial endpoint measures for rare diseases presents considerable challenges due to low patient numbers, clinical heterogeneity and the absence of appropriate or validated endpoints.
  Predicting Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia using novel neuroimaging biomarkers
  Dr T R Barrick, Prof F A Howe
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia are the most common dementias. Predicting individuals at risk of progression to dementia remains an unmet clinical challenge.
  Retinal vessel size and shape associations with brain structure and function
  Prof AR Rudnicka, Dr C Frost
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The size and shape of retinal vessels might be early markers of decline in cognitive function and dementia. We have used novel artificial intelligence enhanced automated software to generate a rich quantitative characterization of retinal vessels in UK Biobank participants who underwent retinal imaging.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Improve the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Health Care
  Dr B Brown, Prof D Dowding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Artificial intelligence (AI) is widespread throughout commercial industries (think Google, Uber, Alexa, and Siri), but rarely used in health care settings.
