Our newly established Centre for Doctoral Training on Advanced Engineering on Personalised Surgery & Intervention (AE-PSI) offers PhD projects on:

  • Smart Surgical Instruments and Active Implants, including surgical robotics, advanced imaging systems, and human/machine implantable interfaces.
    • Surgical Data Science, including creation of clinical decision support systems and interventional imaging analysis.
      • Digital Surgical Twins, including patient specific models that allow for in silico training and outcome prediction.
      • These scholarships cater for students requiring further technical skills development through an MRes, and for students that can directly embark on PhD research.
