Project Description:Chemistry is a key component of many emerging fields of study including drug-synthesis for resistant bacteria, cancer treatments and renewable energy. The Department of Chemistry at the University of Adelaide is participating in these exciting new areas of research. Our research involves many new technologies which are influencing the field of chemistry including synchrotron and mass spectrometry, x-ray crystallography, nanotechnology, computational methods, lasers and synthetic biology. We also undertake award-winning research in fundamental chemistry spanning the traditional disciplines. Work with us as we make new discoveries, facilitate important scientific activities and train researchers of the future.

Project Description:Humans heal in a different manner to rodents, so we need to start using more representative wound healing models to replicate the tissue architecture and wound healing cascade observed in human dermal wound healing. This exciting PhD opportunity involves developing a 3D infected chronic wound model, comprised of culturing dermal chronic wound fibroblasts, which are obtained from venous leg ulcers and epidermal keratinocytes in a complex 3D model system, allowing the strong paracrine feedback system to occur between the two cell types, as occurs in the native skin environment. This model will be utilising mostly animal-free-origin products, in a move away from typically animal-derived components used in tissue culture, resulting in reduced ethical implications and reduced variability across experiments, due to batch-to-batch variability associated with animal-derived products. This model will use a synthetic hydrogel (PeptiGel®) from Manchester BIOGEL to replace the typically used Matrigel; this PeptiGel® can be tailored to include additional components, including collagen, laminin and fibronectin.

This project involves working within the Sloan/Moses lab at The University of Melbourne, benefitting from their extensive 3D model experience. Dr Moses has been awarded a number of grants and prizes recently to further develop this work, with a strong background in wound healing, in vitro 3D models and novel pharmaceutical screening. Professor Sloan has long standing expertise in developing novel in vitro / ex vivo organ 3D culture model systems for tissue regeneration/engineering and testing novel therapeutic agents, along with advancing the 3Rs in biomedical research and bioengineering. Dr Farrugia has a strong background in biomaterial development and characterisation, and wound healing, including in vitro models, with an additional focus on the development of new therapies. Dr Liam Sharkey is a bacteriologist specialising in antibiotic resistance with a particular focus on Staphylococcus aureus, a common cause of chronic wound infections. He has experience with in vitro models of S. aureus biofilm formation and the genetic manipulation of clinical S. aureus strains. This project benefits from collaboration with industrial partners assessing novel pharmaceuticals on these models; these natural pharmaceuticals have previously been assessed by Dr Moses through a variety of other 2D wound healing studies.

This project will involve a variety of laboratory-based techniques including tissue culture, 3D models, bacteriology, histology, immunostaining, H&E staining, confocal imaging, translational research, bioinformatics, biostatistics, research management, oral presentation skills, and scientific writing skills.

Project Description:We explore the molecular mechanisms underlying chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, HIV and Alzheimer’s disease. Our goal is to better understand the molecular structure of these human diseases in order to discover new pathways and treatment options. Our experts are also forging ahead with our understanding of the molecular interactions between pathogenic bacteria and humans. We’re developing more effective vaccines and treatment strategies to combat infectious diseases, such as E.coli, tuberculosis, golden staph, middle ear infection and malaria. Our scientists are also making important breakthroughs in biotechnology, epigenetics and genome editing. We investigate how flora and fauna adapt to environmental signalling; how species evolve and survive through the evolution of resistance; genetic engineering of bacteria; and improving crops through synthetic biology and biotechnology.

Project Description:Our physics research captures international attention in the world's best research journals, as we collaborate with national and international partners on cutting-edge global physics projects. We explore the fundamental studies of the structure of sub-atomic matter and develop novel optical and photonic systems for a wide range of applications. We investigate the upper atmosphere using a network of sites that stretch from the equator to the Antarctic. We analyse the structure of the universe under, above and beyond the earth through our astrophysics and geophysics programs. We aim to improve healthcare through our medical physics research.

Project Description:

This Scholarship has been established to provide financial assistance to a master's by research or PhD student to undertake research in the cardiovascular rehabilitation and secondary prevention fields as part of a NHMRC Synergy Grant.

The aim of SOLVE-CHD is to transform post-discharge secondary prevention and reduce the burden of heart disease by decreasing deaths, hospitalisations and costs via a program of work that integrates data, technology, partnerships and capacity building.

This Scholarship is funded by a NHMRC Synergy Grant entitled Solving the long-standing evidence-practice gap associated with cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention of coronary heart disease (SOLVE-CHD).Use paste as text if you have formatting problems.

Funding Information:

Grundlegendes zum Schwerpunkt Medizin, Gesundheitswissenschaften & Psychologie

Forschung in den Gesundheits- und Medizinwissenschaften und der Psychologie stellt das physische und mentale Wohlbefinden des Menschen in den Mittelpunkt. Ziel ist es, neue und innovative Wege zu finden, Krankheiten zu identifizieren, zu heilen und zu verhindern und eine Bereitstellung von effizienten Gesundheitsdiensten zu gewährleisten. Die Frage, wie Gesellschaften die Gesundheit und Gesundheitsversorgung ihrer Bevölkerung sichern, wird im Zuge der aktuellen globalen Veränderungen immer wichtiger. Mit seinen grundlegenden Fragestellungen gehört dieser Forschungsbereich zu den neun nationalen „Research Priorities“ in Australien. Mit renommierten internationalen Forschungspartnern setzen sich die australischen Universitäten darüber hinaus für die Lösung globaler gesundheitswissenschaftlicher Herausforderungen ein. 

Bitte beachten

Medizinstudierende, die sich für ein PhD-Programm in Australien bewerben wollen, brauchen einen Nachweis über substantielle Forschungserfahrung während ihres Studiums. Dieser Nachweis kann auch durch die deutsche Doktorarbeit erbracht werden.
