  Animats - neural culture controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols.
  Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild
  Prof W Harwin, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Movement analysis and recording has been confined to dedicate gait and motion capture facilities, but this only only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment.
  Designing Technology for Personalised Nutrition
  Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD investigates the design of technology to provide personalised nutrition advice. Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are major challenges globally, and can be addressed, in part, by eating a healthier diet.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Machine learning for affective manipulation in music Brain Computer Interfaces
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"At the University of Reading we have created one of the first music Brain Computer Interfaces – a system that monitors the emotional states of the subject and as a result generates commands changing the nature of synthetically generated live music in order to drive the emotional state of the subject in the desired direction.
  Modelling and understanding of biological systems, using physics as a tool
  Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Smart textiles to support rehabilitation and daily living activities post stroke
  Prof R McCrindle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"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.
  Super-resolved Terahertz Microscopy for Cellular Imaging
  Dr J Bowen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The goal of this research project is to develop a new terahertz microscopy technique for the imaging of live cells with a spatial resolution of better than 1 micrometre.
  Understanding the Electric Field in Electrical Stimulation for biomedical application
  Prof W Holderbaum, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a treatment that applies small electrical charges to a muscle that has become paralysed or weakened, due to damage in your brain or spinal cord.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Modelling the cardiovascular side-effects of anaesthesia
  Prof I Bojak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Propofol is currently the anaesthetic most commonly employed in surgical operations. However, it has a variety of cardiovascular side-effects that are potentially life-threatening, in particular for fragile patients.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
