Clinical Exercise Testing in Respiratory Medicine (MRes)


Project Description

Carnegie School of Sport and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust are delighted to invite Masters by Research applications for a project entitled ‘Clinical Exercise Testing in Respiratory Medicine’

Respiratory disease effects one in five people and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United Kingdom. Clinical exercise testing is an important tool that provides valuable diagnostic and prognostic information in this setting - however several unmet clinical needs have recently been identified which include the requirement to: (1) establish reference values for adults and children according to specific airways disease sub-types; (2) evaluate risk stratification in lung disease patients other than chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); (3) develop strategies to optimise the use of exercise testing to determine the effects of treatment for individualised patients.

The project provides an exciting opportunity to contribute to collaborative clinical research trials between Leeds Beckett University and Leeds Centre for Respiratory Medicine, St. James University Hospital. The successful applicant will develop a variety of practical skills including full lung function testing and advanced data analysis/statistical modelling techniques.

We are seeking a highly motivated student with an undergraduate degree (first or upper second class honours) in a related discipline. Prior experience contributing to clinical or health related-research projects and/or conducting basic lung function, cardiovascular measurement and exercise testing would also be desirable.

Funding Notes

Applications for this project are only open to self-funded students. All associated research project costs are covered by Leeds Beckett University.

You may be eligible for the government's new Postgraduate Loan if you start a full-time or part-time Master's course this year.
