  Translational Cardiovascular Research, Cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans
  Prof C Antoniades
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We undertake translational research by moving from bench to bedside and vice versa; our main focus is the cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Antiretroviral-induced metabolic toxicity: Role of adipose- miRNAs as mechanistic regulators and toxicity biomarkers
  Dr S Pushpakom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr S Pushpakom. Prof M Bushell. Prof Sir M Pirmohamed. Background. Diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease (collectively called cardiometabolic disease) remain a major public health problem worldwide.
  Obesity, metabolic health and prostate cancer: using abdominal and pelvic imaging to characterize obesity and adipose tissue distribution
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr E Allott, Dr S Jain, Dr G Prue
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
There are currently no well-established modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer. Some evidence suggests that obesity is linked to more aggressive prostate cancer and worse outcomes, but studies are inconsistent and mechanisms are not understood.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Deciphering the role of fat tissues in maintaining systemic glucose and energy metabolism
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
  Characterization of a Novel Human Myokine
  Dr A Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle, in addition to its traditional role in movement in the body, is involved in regulating physiological homeostasis and disease progression in other tissues.
  Characterisation vascular function in ischemic heart disease
  Dr S Withers, Dr D Greensmith
Applications accepted all year round
The use of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) to bypass the left anterior descending artery (LAD) is the “gold standard” for coronary artery bypass grafting.
  Gastrointestinal modulation using omega-3 and probiotic strategies and its effect on cardio-metabolic health in obese and non-obese populations
  Dr J Roberts, Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/cambridge-centre-for-sport-and-exercise-sciences.
  ESR7: Development of therapeutic ultrasound applications based on acoustic cavitation
  Prof G Ter Haar, Dr I Rivens
Applications accepted all year round
This is one of two projects within this section. Please apply promptly, as we wish to appoint 2 PhD students to start by 1st June 2019.
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round
The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
