  Measuring Visual Sensitivity to Emotional Facial Expressions in Health and Disease
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Prof G Loffler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19031. Humans tend to leak emotion through facial expressions. A brief glimpse of a face is often sufficient to determine that an individual is feeling happy, sad, angry or surprised.
  Molecular Pathology of Glaucoma
  Prof C Willoughby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a leading cause of blindness worldwide affecting over 64 million people. Glaucoma is a complex multifactorial ocular disease with significant health and socio-economic impact.
  Assessment of Spectacle Independence with Multifocal IOLs utilising Patient Reported Outcomes
  Dr C Hamer, Dr K Bannigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In cataract surgery, the assessments, procedure and implants (intraocular lenses, IOLs) have all improved to such an extent, that it is now possible to correct pre-existing refractive error (need for spectacles) [1-4].
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19029. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  Vertical reading training for stroke survivors with visual field loss
  Dr K Thomson, Dr C Hazelton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Stroke survivors with visual field loss struggle to read, due to an inability to see the start or end of lines of text within the area of lost vision (Fig 1).
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Preventing short-sightedness in urban populations in India (GCRF)
  Dr H Radakrishnan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myopia (short-sightedness) has become an important public health concern worldwide with its rapid increase in the prevalence in the last few decades and being associated with sight-threatening ocular diseases/complications in later life.
  Small nerve fibre damage and sexual dysfunction in diabetes and obesity. A mechanistic assessment and effect of lipid modifying agents.
  Dr H Soran, Prof R Malik, Dr R Donn, Dr M Ferdousi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes and its complications represent a growing global health burden, affecting an estimated 366 million people worldwide.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Quantum Optomechanical Ultrasound Sensing
  Prof Warwick Bowen, Dr G Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. Quantum optomechanics explores the interaction between light and mechanical motion at a level where the quantised nature of light, or the zero-point fluctuations of motion, play a significant role.
