The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  (MRC DTP) Can we use techniques such as machine learning to improve the risk prediction of infection-related complications in order to optimise antibiotic prescribing?
  Prof T Van Staa, Dr V Palin, Dr D Wong
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is a major public health concern and overuse of antibiotics is a major factor in its development. One strategic aim of the Government’s approach to minimise this is to conserve and steward the effectiveness of existing treatments by optimising antibiotic prescribing practices.
  (MRC DTP) Characterisation of longitudinal peripheral immune cellular changes in post-stroke cognitive decline
  Prof C Smith, Dr J Grainger, Prof S Allan
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type
