  The Biological and Pathological Effects of Blinking (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT1)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Blinking is essential to spread the tear film over the surface of the eye and so keeps the eye moist and lubricated to ensure a smooth surface for refraction of light and provision of essential nutrients and protective antimicrobial molecules.
  Understanding the Biological Properties of Medicinal Maggot Secretions (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT2)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medicinal maggots have long been used to promote healing of skin wounds. Their beneficial effects are, at least in part, due to secreted molecules that facilitate tissue rejuvenation, and that have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory actions.
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
  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.
  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).
  Using Classification Images to Unlock Expertise in Judgements of 3D Aerial Geography.
  Dr A J Schofield, Dr T Meese
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from ambitious, self-motivated candidates with an interest in studying human visual perception in relation to the identification of geographic features in 3D Aerial images.
  Targeting TRPV1 channels for the restoration of microvascular barrier function in diabetic retinopathy
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof T Curtis, Dr D Simpson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetic macular oedema is a leading cause of vision loss in people with diabetes. The condition results from damage to the endothelial cells that line the small blood vessels of the retina, the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye.
  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.
