About the Project
We have data from several hundred children born at risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia, in whom we have detailed records about their blood sugar levels, and also details of their development at different ages. The objective of this project would be to undertake a statistical modelling approach to understand the relationships between measures of blood sugar levels in the newborn period and aspects of development at different ages. This would involve developing approaches to combining different data sets, different outcome measures at different ages, and measures of glucose variability. Statistical tools are likely to include mixed models for developmental outcomes and latent class models to characterise variation and subgroups.
Scholarships and awards are available to support Honours, Masters and PhD students at the Liggins Institute, including a Liggins Institute ’Start Up’ Doctoral Scholarship for your first year’s fees. Find out more here: https://www.auckland.ac.nz/en/liggins/study-with-us/scholarships-and-awards.html
There are no international fees for PhD students: as long as you live in New Zealand during your period of enrolment, and even if you initially start your PhD from overseas, you will pay the same as New Zealanders.
