  Glioblastoma: A Nanotechnology Approach for Glioblastoma Targeted Therapy
  Research Group: Medical Engineering
  Dr F Sefat, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is a type of brain cancer. It’s the most common type of malignant brain tumor among adults and it is usually very aggressive, which means it can grow fast and spread quickly.
  Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
