Sustainable processes – reducing single use plastics in healthcare

The burden of medical plastic waste has become an increasingly pressing concern in recent years. The healthcare industry relies heavily on single-use plastic items due to their convenience and hygiene factors, but this has led to a significant environmental problem. Read more

The role of the extracellular matrix in cardiomyocyte developmental (SMITH_U24DTP1)

Primary Supervisor: Dr James Smith . Secondary Supervisor: Dr Iain Macaulay (EI) . Cardiomyocytes are the muscle cells of the heart, responsible for the production of contraction forces. Read more

Immune regulation of lung repair, and long-term consequences of infection

This project is one of 14 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (MRS) ( to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO). Read more

NIHR Leeds BRC: Pre-clinical evaluation of novel regenerative medicine strategies for knee osteoarthritis

Historically, articular cartilage was considered incapable of spontaneous repair.  However, biomechanical correction in osteoarthritis (OA) using high tibial osteotomy or joint distraction demonstrated the remarkable joint to regeneration by “merely” correcting joint alignment. Read more

Unravelling the biophysical mechanisms that regulate liver fibrosis

Applications are invited for a Postgraduate studentship, supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Doctoral Training Programme, to be undertaken within the College of Health and Life Sciences at Aston University. Read more

Biomechanics and wear of a novel modular tray for an all-polymer total knee replacement

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Do you want to make a difference in patients’ lives? Are you interested in medical technologies innovation? Do you want to collaborate with industry? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you should consider this PhD studentship opportunity offered by the University of Leeds in partnership with Invibio Limited, a proven development partner and leader of biomaterials solutions.

Biomechanical Investigation of Tendinopathy: A Multiscale Study

Overview. This PhD project aims to address the prevalent issue of tendinopathies, which significantly impact the general population and pose substantial socio-economic challenges globally. Read more

3D printing spinal cords

Project Overview. This project offers an exciting opportunity to use hydrogels and 3D printing to engineer a segment of the spinal cord, which could be further developed into a transplant for patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). Read more

Multi-scale modelling and simulation of bio-inspired structures

Bio-inspired structures draw their primary inspiration from the sheer fecundity of nature in the diversity of forms and their constant evolution in order to better adapt to their environment. Read more

A 3D-Printed Blood-Brain-Barrier-on-a-Chip for Agrochemical Permeability Studies – CASE Studentship

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) tightly regulates the flow of material between the bloodstream and the brain. One of the big problems faced by a range of sectors, from pharmaceuticals to agrochemicals, is understanding how compounds interact with and cross this barrier. Read more
