  Surface-modified silicone elastomer for medical and drug delivery devices with reduced bacterial adherence and biofilm formation
  Dr L Carson, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All implanted medical devices, including those fabricated from silicone elastomers, are susceptible colonisation with communities of microorganisms that colonise the surface of the device and rapidly establish biofilm populations.
  PhD positions in innovative application of x-rays in materials and tissue analysis
  Prof A Olivio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering at UCL is inviting applications for a studentship in the development in innovative applications of x-rays to materials and tissue analysis.
  Rational engineering of NMDAR subunit-specific peptide affinity reagents and their pharmacological and functional characterisation as novel subtype specific NMDAR ligands.
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to engineer subunit-specific anti-GluN1/2/A/B polypeptide affinity reagents and to characterise their pharmacological specificity and functional activity on the recombinant NMDARs expressed in heterologous expression systems and on native NMDARs in hippocampal slice preparations.
  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.
  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.
  Pressure-Related Skin Injury: Environmental Factors and Design Solutions
  Dr A Lloyd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Environmental Ergonomics Research Centre is interested in how a mechanistic understanding of Environmental Physiology and Medicine can be used to improve human performance and health through translational research.
  The role of SORL1 in B cell antigen trafficking
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr D Malinova, Dr A Kissenpfennig
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

B cells are a crucial element of adaptive immunity by producing antibodies to neutralise invading pathogens. For an effective antibody response, a B cell must interact with and internalise (endocytose) antigens through its surface B cell receptor.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Digital soft contact lenses design and validation
  Dr A Abass, Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft contact lenses are medical devices largely used to correct the eye refractive error for more than 125 million people worldwide.
