  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
