  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.
  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
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
  Investigating a reading test as a measure of the efficacy of ocular lubricant treatment in individuals with dry eye disease
  Prof C Dickinson, Prof R Harper, Prof F Carley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The front surface of the eye is covered by a thin layer of tears to lubricate it, to help avoid infection, and to create a precise optical surface to help with the formation of clear images on the back of the eye.
  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  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.
