Investigating the effect of red and infra-red (Low-Level) Lasers on cellular behaviour


   Faculty of Engineering and Informatics

  , , Mrs Helen Adamson  Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

There are a range of uses for lasers and laser treatments in the medical industry. The use of lasers is highly popular in the treatment of dermatological conditions. There are several dermatoses’ conditions, which are more prominent in women, that use laser as a form of treatment, including rosacea, connective tissue disease, melasma and many more.

Rosacea is a chronic condition that affects the eyes and central face, typically affecting people with lighter complexions and women. The treatment of the conditions involves symptom management, as there is currently no cure for the condition. The aim of this project is to investigate the effect of red and infra-red (Low-Level) Lasers on cellular behaviour.

The selected student will work in parallel in a Radiology department as well as the Faculty of Life Sciences and the Biomedical Engineering department at the University of Bradford. Formal applications can be made via the University of Bradford web site.
