Ref. SHLS20031. Background. Worldwide, about 400 million people are visually impaired or blind, constituting considerable demand for eye care.1 Effective and accessible eye care can make a significant difference to the lives of millions of people as 80% of all causes of visual impairment are preventable or curable.
  The use of high- and low-melanopic lighting to improve cognitive work in healthcare
  Dr D Phipps, Prof C Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Previous research has supported the notion that lighting conditions play a role in determining how well humans work on healthcare tasks.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
