Bioenergetics of traumatic brain injury - MPhil/PhD Scholarship


   Centre for Advanced Imaging

  Prof David Reutens  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Bioenergetic changes may play an important role in secondary damage following traumatic brain injury. Magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging has shown significant potential for the non-invasive imaging of key 13C-labelled metabolites in the brain and dissolution dynamic nuclear polarisation (dissolution DNP) is a new technology that can increase the MRI signal to allow real time in vivo imaging and quantification of changes in metabolism.

This project will undertake studies of pyruvate metabolism in a model of traumatic brain injury using magnetic resonance spectroscopy and dissolution DNP.

The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field/s of physical sciences, including disciplines such as biomedical engineering, chemistry, physics and biochemistry or a related field and the potential for scholastic success.

A background or knowledge of nuclear magnetic resonance resonance (NMR) or magnetic resonance spectroscopy and computational skills is highly desirable.

How to Apply

Please contact Prof David Reutens () to discuss.


Funding Notes

Fully funded opportunity - 34,627 AUD per annum (2021 rate), indexed annually for 2 years. The scholarship is offered through the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT), a multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at The University of Queensland and medical technology and pharmaceutical industry partners.
