In summary, the overall strategy of the Diabetes Research Group at Ulster includes undertaking and publishing research of national and international status, exploiting intellectual property and pursuing technology transfer, providing a supportive and high quality training environment to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and new skills. Taken together, undertaking your PhD studies within the world-renowned Diabetes Research Group at Ulster will offer you an unparalleled opportunity to progress your chosen career.

Multi-disciplinary collaboration between the research groups is strongly encouraged and is widespread with research into, for instance, anti-diabetic and antioncogenic aspects of nutrition, the genomics of vitamin receptors, visual deterioration or cancer, imaging of neovascularisation. Our research investigates the interaction between cardiovascular disease and vision and the impact of health and disease, diet, diabetes on dementia, hypertension, vascular and inflammatory disease, to name a few.
