Exploring novel experimental therapeutics for mitochondrial disorders of the eye

Background. Primary mitochondrial genetic disease manifestations can involve almost all aspects of the eye. Mitochondrial disorders of the eye are often devastating genetic diseases, causing significant childhood and young adult blindness in the developed world. Read more

PhD in Vision Sciences: Evaluating functional outcomes of novel therapies for mitochondrial optic neuropathy using ultra-high resolution multi-electrode array

Mitochondrial optic neuropathies result in blindness and are currently untreatable. They arise as a consequence of genetic mutations in either mitochondrial or nuclear DNA and share the common characteristic of primarily affecting retinal ganglion cell (RGC) survival. Read more

Three-dimensional structural mapping of the retinal neurovascular unit and the influence of diabetes

The aim of this PhD project is to better understand why people with diabetes are at risk of losing their vision. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in developed countries. Read more

Identifying genetic mechanisms of neuronal regeneration using planaria

Neuronal injury or disease in humans often leads to disability and mortality. Neurons in humans regenerate poorly, and there are very few methods to encourage this regeneration. Read more

Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland. Read more

Bioengineering a full thickness cornea

Corneal blindness is the 4th leading cause of global blindness (WHO). Corneal scarring can be caused by trauma or infection and corneal replacement with donor corneas or synthetic (plastic) alternatives is currently the sole treatment to restore vision. Read more

Application of animal corneal cells for skin regeneration, tissue engineering and wound healing enhancement

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Engineering of biological skin substitutes has progressed over the years from individual applications of skin cells, or biopolymer scaffolds, to combinations of cells and scaffolds for treatment, healing, and closure of acute and chronic skin wounds. Read more

Enhanced variant interpretation for the discovery of mechanisms underpinning Ophthalmic genomic disorders

This project will utilize large genomic sequencing datasets from the 100,000 genomes project and the UK BioBank to understand how genomic variation impacts the development and function of cells vital for correct vision. Read more

PhD position offered within EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Initial Training Network EYE: European Young Eye

Short description of project. EYE is a project funded under H2020-ITN-2020 call (industrial doctorate modality). EYE will provide training and professional development in Vision Sciences and Optical Imaging Technologies to 5 Early Stage Researchers (ESR). Read more
