  An investigation of Demodex mites in optometric practice, including their impact on ocular surface inflammation and current treatment methods.
  Dr E Martin, Dr S Hagan, Dr I Pearce
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Project reference number. SHLS19030. Demodex folliculorum mites can be found in the eyelash follicles of humans. These are common organisms found more frequently with increasing age and in 95% of those over the age of 70 (Czepita et al, 2005).
  Eye care service delivery and outcomes in developed and developing countries
  Dr S Jonuscheit, Prof N Strang, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Project reference number. SHLS19032. Worldwide, about 400 million people are visually impaired or blind, constituting considerable demand for eye care globally.(Bourne et al.
  Measuring Visual Sensitivity to Emotional Facial Expressions in Health and Disease
  Dr A Logan, Dr U Shahani, Prof G Loffler
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Project reference number. SHLS19031. Humans tend to leak emotion through facial expressions. A brief glimpse of a face is often sufficient to determine that an individual is feeling happy, sad, angry or surprised.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Project reference number. SHLS19029. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  Spatial statistical methods and machine learning for analysis of retinal images of optic disc
  Dr G Czanner, Dr S Czanner
Applications accepted all year round
Automated disease diagnosis using medical imaging data is an increasingly important problem. For example, colour retinal images are used to detect glaucoma - a major cause of blindness.
  The role of isothiocyanates-derived from natural sources in uveal melanoma chemoprevention (ref: SF18/APP/McDermott)
  Prof A McDermott, Prof M Panagiotidis, Dr G Koutsidis
Applications accepted all year round
Uveal melanoma is the most frequent primary intraocular tumor, in Caucasian adults, and one that is very difficult to treat once it becomes metastatic.
  Medical Imaging and Artificial Intelligence Technologies for the detection of Eye Diseases
  Research Group: Visual Computing
  Prof R Qahwaji
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to develop Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence-Based System for the Diagnosis of Infectious keratitis in the Cornea.
  New technologies for metabolic imaging of the retina
  Prof A Harvey
Applications accepted all year round
Retinal imaging systems are the dominant tools for screening and informing treatment for retinal disease. Whereas existing imaging modalities produce images of retinal structure, we will develop new imaging technologies for.
  Using next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to investigate penetrance and phenotypic variation in inherited eye disease
  Dr C Toomes
Applications accepted all year round
Human inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) result from mutations in over 250 different genes, many of them implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Investigating the role of Inter-alpha-inhibitor Heavy Chain 3 in age-related macular degeneration
  Dr S Clark, Prof T Day
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness globally. It is well established that although a multifactorial disease, AMD is largely genetically driven, with the majority of attributable genetic risk being associated with loci on chromosome 1 (Chr1) and chromosome 10 (Chr10).
