Gestational diabetes: early diagnosis and prevention of complications via modelling the dynamics of blood glucose variations

Application Deadline: 21st March

Are you keen on a project that combines both theoretical and experimental research elements? Are you interested in biomedical engineering, systems biology or system medicine? This might be the project for you.

The project is a joint venture between the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick and the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW). The PhD project aims to support an ongoing 5-years research programme (Chief Investigator: Dr Khovanova) funded by EPSRC UK, Dexcom, UHCW NHS Trust and supported by the Clinical Research Network of the National Institute for Health Research. It will provide a unique opportunity to apply research through the full lifecycle of mathematical modelling, experimental design, data-driven systems modelling using machine learning approaches, ultimately leading to simulation and prediction applied in the health care setting to the management of gestational diabetes.
