Monash University full-time 3-year PhD scholarship - call for expressions of interest

Faculty: Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences

School: Public Health and Preventive Medicine

The Opportunity

The scholarship is being offered as part of the research activities of the Aspirin in Venous Leg Ulcer Study (ASPiVLU) within the ASPREE Co-ordinating Centre, tenable from February 2016. 

The scholarship provides an opportunity to undertake a PhD project that will comprise a component of the NHMRC funded ASPiVLU project, a randomised double-blind multicentre placebo-controlled clinical trial to determine the clinical effectiveness of aspirin as an adjunct to compression in healing venous leg ulcers in adults. ASPiVLU includes 12 investigators from across Australia and the UK and nine clinical partner organisations (www.med.monash.edu.au/sphpm/aspivlu-study.html).

The PhD project will examine healing and ulcer recurrence outcomes to investigate the mechanism of aspirin’s effect and to explore its impact on other important health outcomes in people with chronic wounds. The program of study will be determined in consultation with the successful applicant.
