  Delivering person-centred care in the community: what works for managing Long Term Conditions?
  Dr K Martin, Dr S MacLennan
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
This is an innovative project within the important area of long-term conditions (LTC).
  Novel protein pathways regulating adipose tissue expansion during weight gain
  Prof G Nixon, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Adipose (fat) tissue expands during excessive food intake. While this is a normal physiological process to store energy, in sedentary individuals or those on a prolonged high fat diet, adipose tissue expansion can particularly occur abdominally, around several different organs.
  Mapping the consequences of peripheral nerve transection and repair on brain organisation and hand function.
  Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Project. When a nerve of the hand is cut, the signalling between the hand and brain is disrupted, and as a consequence, the brain changes.
  Novel machine learning methodologies for human action correction in videos
  Dr C Grosan
Applications accepted all year round
The goal of this research is to motivate patients with disabilities to get better in a faster, easier and fun way. It will apply artificial intelligence methods to a software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive applications, including video cogniexergames.
  Could anti-inflammatory treatment at ACL reconstruction improve biological, functional and clinical outcomes?
  Dr D Mason, Prof C A Holt
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
  A comparison of transcriptome signature of resistance exercise adaptations in young, older adults and athlete
  Dr N Clarke, Dr P Mundy, Dr I Haussmann
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Greater muscular strength is strongly associated with improved physical performance in athletes. A recent investigation identified 16 loci associated with handgrip strength; however, handgrip strength is a poor indicator of athletic performance.
  Hot water immersion as an adjunct to exercise training
  Dr T Cullen
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a (fully-funded) PhD studentship. Coventry University has been voted ‘Modern University of the Year’ three times running by The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide.

  Neural circuits synchronisation and regulation of innate behaviors - primary accents on state-of-the-art neurophysiological methods
  Prof A Ponomarenko
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Prof. Alexey Ponomarenko at the Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) is looking for highly motivated students interested in neurophysiology, neuronal circuits and behavior and/or in mathematical biology and computational neuroscience.
