MQ Aust School of Advanced Medicine (ASAM): Brain mechanisms that control breathing & circulation
2 PhD Scholarships are available in the Australian School of Advanced Medicine. The project will research the way the brain and spinal cord control breathing and circulation with special reference to hypertension. A common thread in all hypertensive states is a marked increase sympathetic activity, which means the brain is driving an increase in heart rate and contraction of blood vessels resulting in blood pressure that rises to dangerous levels. Tuition fees for a suitably qualified international candidate may paid for by the University (while tution fees for domestic candidates are covered under the government's RTS funding). Prospective applicants should, in the first instance, contact the principal supervisor, Professor Paul M Pilowsky. Refer to http://www.hdr.mq.edu.au/information_about/applications for application instructions and quote the allocation reference numbers 2012112 & 2012113 on your application form.
