  Deep Phenotyping of Crohn’s Patients using a Precision Imaging Approach to Identify Drivers and Stratify Risk of Wasting and Myosteatosis
  Dr G Moran, Prof P Greenhaff, Prof P Gowland, Dr M Brookes
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Up to 75% of hospitalized Crohn’s disease (CD) patients are malnourished and as many as 50% are in negative nitrogen balance(1), but variations in muscle mass and quality in this group is poorly characterised as are the drivers of such pathophysiology.
  Developing multi-modal functional MRI approaches for clinical use
  Dr S Safavi, Dr M Barlow, Prof P Gowland, Dr A Prayle
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
We aim to develop multi-modal functional MRI to use in patients with lung disease. Hyperpolarised xenon-129 MRI (129Xe-MRI) is our focus.
  Development of imaging-based stratification for haemorrhagic stroke trials
  Dr R Dineen, Dr A French, Prof N Sprigg
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage (SICH) accounts for up to 20% of strokes and has higher mortality and worse outcomes than ischaemic stroke.
  ECLIPSE: Effect of carnitine on Liver steatosis, Insulin sensitivity, Plasma glucose, Skeletal muscle metabolism and Energetics - a pilot study
  Prof G Aithal, Prof P Greenhaff, Dr S Bawden, Prof P Gowland
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
This ambitious project unites institutional research priorities in translational imaging, liver disease and musculoskeletal health.
  Establishing autonomic and electrophysiological markers of arousal regulation and attention in children with ADHD
  Dr M Groom, Assoc Prof L Cragg, Dr C Danielmeier, Dr N Blockley
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
ADHD is a prevalent, lifelong and disabling condition that is primarily treated with medication. Medications for ADHD have limited efficacy/tolerability in many children and are selected via trial-and-error; it can take several months to find the right medication for an individual child.
  Evaluating the benefits and challenges of ultra-high field (11.7T) for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy
  Prof R Bowtell, Prof D Auer, Prof P Gowland, Dr P Glover
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
High magnetic field strength offers great benefits for magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, providing improved spatial and temporal resolution, greater sensitivity to physiological changes - particularly for functional brain imaging - and access to new contrasts, such as those based on chemical exchange saturation transfer and magnetic susceptibility.
  Hyperpolarized MRI at ultra high magnetic field.
  Prof T Meersmann, Dr P Glover
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Hyperpolarized (HP) nobles gases, such as HP xenon, enable new MRI contrast to probe different structural and functional aspects of lungs in health and disease.
  Imaging-based neurophenotypes to model developmental mental health disorders
  Dr M Bastiani, Dr M Groom, Prof C Hollis
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
Mental health disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) arise during early development [1], even though they might be diagnosed only later in life when treatment becomes less effective.
  Looking like an expert: assisting automatic diagnosis using an AI attentional system
  Dr A French, Dr M Pound, Assoc Prof D Schluppeck, Dr R Dineen
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
In this PhD, the student will develop an approach combining eye tracking with deep learning to use the resulting attentional maps both in place of expensive segmentation, and to identify where expert’s look to arrive at a decision.
  Mathematical modelling and uncertainty quantification of distributed brain circuits to inform development of neuromodulation therapies.
  Prof D Avitabile, Prof P Liddle, Prof S Coombes
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
In treating mental disorders current pharmacological treatment provides transient relief of symptoms but enduring benefit is likely to require re-modelling of the relevant cerebral circuits by targeted modulation of neural activity in these circuits.
