Dissecting the molecular basis for malaria-linked blood vessel pathology in the brain and retina

Cerebral malaria (CM) remains a major cause of morbidity and death. Plasmodium falciparum infected red blood cells cause disruption of the blood-brain/retina barrier, haemorrhage and localised thrombosis in the CNS. Read more

Exploring novel experimental therapeutics for mitochondrial disorders of the eye

Background. Primary mitochondrial genetic disease manifestations can involve almost all aspects of the eye. Mitochondrial disorders of the eye are often devastating genetic diseases, causing significant childhood and young adult blindness in the developed world. Read more

PhD position: Calcium channels in congenital stationary night blindness

Photoreceptors are morphologically and physiological highly specialized light sensing cells of the retina where sustained release of glutamate from ribbon synapses is calcium dependent and L-type calcium channels (LTCC) serve as the predominant source for Ca2+ entry. Read more

Genetics: Investigating the molecular basis of optic nerve degeneration in glaucoma to try and develop a personalized medicine strategy for treatment

The optic nerve is a special sensory nerve that transmits visual impulses from the retina to the brain. Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) is a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy of multifactorial origin that affects 1 in 10 elderly individuals. Read more

Constructing a stable world: how the brain uses gaze direction to disambiguate sensory information

When objects move in the real world, they create a wave of activity across the retina representing that movement. But the same effect could be achieved by moving our eyes across a static object. Read more

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a real time, non-invasive and non-contact imaging modality for translucent and transparent tissue capable of providing morphological images at the micron scale resolution at more than 1mm depth penetration. Read more

Three-dimensional structural mapping of the retinal neurovascular unit and the influence of diabetes

The aim of this PhD project is to better understand why people with diabetes are at risk of losing their vision. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in developed countries. Read more

Event-based Visual Understanding in Complex Environment [Self Funded Students Only]

  Research Group: Visual Computing
Events record dynamic changes in environments. They are sparse, but an important information source that draw our attention and make us aware of the dynamic surroundings. Read more
