  Dr A Saeed, Dr M Wormstone
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Cataract is clouding of the lens of the eye, which can lead to vision impairment. The most common cause of cataract is ageing, but it can also develop at early ages in Children.
  Nonlinear models for wave propagation in the marginal ice zone (PARAUEU19SF)
  Dr E Parau
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Interactions between ocean waves and sea-ice are extremely complex. The interactions are essential to understanding sea-ice morphology, especially in the context of global warming [3].

  Dr H Gong, Prof G D Finlayson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Have you ever struggled in taking a good photo in low light? Despite of the dramatic improvements in camera sensors, imaging in darkness is still challenging because in many conditions, there is simply too little light on the scene and the imaging sensors are sensitive to noise in these conditions.
  Single Image 3-D Geometry Estimation using Unsupervised Machine Learning (GONGH1U19SF)
  Dr H Gong, Prof G D Finlayson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Most current deep Neural Networks are trained by supervised learning which usually requires massive amounts of manually labelled data (e.g.
  Darwin’s Tree in the 21st Century (HUBERKU19SF)
  Dr K Huber
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Understanding how disparate structures such as galaxies, languages, and genomes have evolved has the potential to shed new light into the early universe, human migration, and potentially lethal diseases such as cancer.
  Using advanced MD simulation for understanding biomolecular mechanism (HAYWARDSU19SF)
  Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Many biomolecules act as molecular machines and have a precise mechanism. Understanding how biomolecules work in detail could bring great advances in medicine and other biotechnologies.
  A combined magnetic resonance (NMR and EPR) approach to identifying and characterising ligand interactions (MACMILLANF2U19SF)
  Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
We use advanced magnetic resonance approaches to identify and characterise weak molecular interactions. The aim of this project is to combine both Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopic techniques to study such interactions.
  Understanding Movement and Mechanism in Molecular Machines (MACMILLANF1U19SF)
  Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
We study the architecture and functional dynamics of membrane proteins, especially many medically relevant membrane transport systems.
  Multifunctional Carbohydrate-Based Nanoparticle for Cancer Monitoring and Treatment (CHAOY2U19SF)
  Dr Y Chao, Prof S Meech
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Nanoparticles are considered as a primary vehicle for targeted therapies because they can pass biological barriers, enter and distribute within cells by energy-dependent pathways.
  Can We Visualise Cyber Security Like the Weather? (BUCKLEYO1U19SF)
  Dr O Buckley
