  Development of an evidence-based, sport-specific classification system for vision-impaired athletics
  Prof P Allen
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research area. Vision. Would you like to help us improve the structure of competition at the Paralympic games? Paralympic competition is structured into classes so that athletes compete against others whose impairment has a similar impact on performance.
  The effects of exercise on the ocular stress response to dry environments (RDF19/HLS/SER/PEART)
  Dr D Peart
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Unpublished pilot work from our group has identified that a single one hour exposure to a desiccating environment (. The successful applicant will contribute to shaping the direction of the project, and full training will be provided in all of the relevant methods of data collection.
  The role of isothiocyanates-derived from natural sources in uveal melanoma chemoprevention (ref: SF18/APP/McDermott)
  Prof A McDermott, Prof M Panagiotidis, Dr G Koutsidis
Applications accepted all year round
Uveal melanoma is the most frequent primary intraocular tumor, in Caucasian adults, and one that is very difficult to treat once it becomes metastatic.
  Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence Technologies for the detection of Eye Diseases
  Research Group: Visual Computing
  Prof R Qahwaji
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to develop Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence-Based System for the Diagnosis of Infectious keratitis in the Cornea.
  Progenitor cells and recovery from retinal injury
  Prof S McFarlane
Applications accepted all year round
The McFarlane lab (https://www.ucalgary.ca/smcfarla/) is interested in how nerve cells are specified and differentiate, and how nerve cells and tissues acquire their correct morphology.
  Regulation of progenitor biology by neural activity
  Prof S McFarlane, Dr G Bertolesi
Applications accepted all year round
The McFarlane lab (https://www.ucalgary.ca/smcfarla/) is interested in how nerve cells are specified and differentiate, and how nerve cells and tissues acquire their correct morphology.
  Using next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to investigate penetrance and phenotypic variation in inherited eye disease
  Dr C Toomes
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) result from mutations in over 250 different genes, many of them implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evaluation of adult stem cell differentiation in the trabecular meshwork of the eye as a regenerative medicine approach for Glaucoma using novel polymer 3D scaffolds
  Dr CM Sheridan, Dr R Oldershaw, Dr A P Meeson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world and is an optic neuropathy affecting the vision of older adults.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Integrated system for rigorous personalised diagnosis for Giant Cell Arteritis
  Prof S Ferson, Prof A Morgan, Dr M de Angelis, Dr C Tsoumpas
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisors. (1) Prof Scott Ferson is the director of the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty of the University of Liverpool. https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/engineering/staff/scott-ferson/.
  Effects of fasting-induced torpor on sleep and behaviour in mice
  Prof v Vyazovskiy, Prof D Bannerman, Dr S Peirson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
This project will investigate the effects of food restriction on torpor in mice, the effects of torpor on subsequent behavioural performance and sleep, and will develop a standardized approach to detect the occurrence of torpor during food restriction.
