  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round
Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  Rapid blood platelet analysis: linking micro-capillary assays to novel digital microscopy and smartphone technology
  Dr CI Jones, Dr A Edwards, Prof W Harwin
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Blood clots allow us to recover from tissue injury. Platelets are small blood cells that prevent bleeding by clumping together to form clots.
  Do dissociated neural networks dream of electric sheep?
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr N Vasudevan, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Next generation wearable healthcare sensors
  Prof S Sherratt, Prof W Harwin, Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy.
  Studying the mechanisms that cause heart failure
  Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round
Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack, and this presents a huge economic burden each year.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  Developing novel drug delivery approaches to treat ocular disorders
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Ocular diseases affect the quality of life of millions of people worldwide. The leading causes of chronic blindness include cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, corneal opacities, diabetic retinopathy, and trachoma.
  Smart textiles to support rehabilitation and daily living activities post stroke
  Prof R McCrindle
Applications accepted all year round
"The aim of this PhD is to investigate how smart textiles and/or other wearables can be used to assist people who have had a stroke with their communication, rehabilitation, and/or reengagement in daily living activities and hobbies.
