GW4 Biomedical Doctoral Training Partnership opportunity
28 October 2016
There is a new upcoming project within the GW4 Biomedical Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by the Medical Research Council, entitled 'Towards personalised behavioural obesity treatment in children and adolescents'.
The project will identify effective measures to characterise obesity-related eating behaviours in children recruited from a hospital clinic and community, such as impulsive over-eating, eating fast or large portions.
Tailored interventions will be developed and provided as 'apps', and their effects will be assessed with the use of brain imaging and experimental psychology.
The deadline for applications is Thursday 1 December 2016.
