Accepting PhD Students
We currently have several projects on offer to MPhil and PhD research students. The areas of interests are listed below.
1. Understanding the molecular basis of heart failure. This includes inherited forms cardiomyopathy that affects the muscles of the heart resulting in end stage heart failure.
2. Deciphering the underlying mechanisms of peripartium cardiomyopathy (PPCM). PPCM is a form of heart failure that specifically affects pregnant women.
Students interested in these areas of study will need to have some experience in bioinformatics analysis of RNAseq and proteomics datasets.
3. A study of population wide hypertension and its co-factors.
4. Population-based gene association study.
Students interested in these areas of study will need to have some experience in biostatistics and large data mining.
