  The mitral valve: next generation of cardiovascular engineering replacement devices and materials
  Dr D Espino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe heart valve failure can require surgical repair or replacement of the mitral valve. Current medical devices do not fully exploit the next generation of materials, or their design, for targeted patient treatment and monitoring.
  Development of a model oesophagus for drug testing
  Dr A Ghag, Dr H Batchelor
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The oesophagus is the organ that links the mouth to the stomach. It is often described as a simple collapsible tube and is often overlooked in pharmaceutical research as rapid transit is assumed.
  Cellular responses to radiation curing of resin-composite materials
  Dr R M Shelton, Prof W Palin, Dr P Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultraviolet and visible light energy is routinely used for crosslinking a multitude of biomaterial applications ranging from hydrogels for tissue engineering and drug delivery, laser activated surgical adhesives to resin-based composite dental restoratives.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Hydrogels for tissue engineering scaffolds containing cells
  Dr R M Shelton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to investigate the potential of various polysaccharide hydrogels for use as tissue engineering scaffold materials to enable cells to be cultured both on and within the material.
  Investigation into the potential of using different delivery systems of cultured oral keratinocytes as a possible treatment for mucosal defects
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr R M Shelton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of the project is to investigate the possibility of being able to remove a small biopsy of a patients oral mucosa from a suitable site, expand the numbers of keratinocytes in culture, before seeding these cells onto a suitable delivery system and reimplanting into the patient over their mucosal defect.
  Mathematical Modelling of Cancer-Cell Transmigration Through Blood Vessels
  Dr F Spill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer rarely kills through the primary tumour in which cancer arises, e.g. the prostate in prostate cancer. Instead, cancer cells may travel through the vasculature and colonialize distant organs – a process termed metastasis.
