  4-year PhD studentship: Development of smartphone imaging technology for screening anaemia
  Dr T Leung
Application Deadline: 21 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop smartphone imaging techniques to provide a non-invasive, accessible way of diagnosing anaemia, which has wide ranging applications from home monitoring to deployment in low resource settings.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteomic approaches using mass spectrometric analysis have proved a valuable tool in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of complex disorders such as schizophrenia and ASD.
  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.
  Alpha-defensin haplotypes and IgA nephropathy risk
  Prof J A L Armour, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human alpha-defensin genes DEFA1 and DEFA3 encode short antimicrobial peptides that are important components of the innate immune system, and are subject to copy number variation (CNV) with individuals having between 3 and 18 copies.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
