  TRIB3 at the interface of metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue
  Dr H Wilson, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity drives chronic inflammation and immune activation. This results in dysregulated metabolism, insulin resistance linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  Identification of key factors from adipose tissue that mediate obesity-induced diabetes and cardiovascular complications
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adipose tissue (fat) is a highly heterogeneous and dynamic organ that plays integral roles in metabolic and cardiovascular health.
  Adipose tissue remodelling in obesity and type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to join the Cardiac Phenomics laboratory at the University of Melbourne. Our University is ranked 9th in the world for pre-clinical biomedical research (Times Higher Education).
  Development of new anti-obese strategies by conversion of white fat to brown fat
  Prof A Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In contrast to white adipose tissue (WAT) that stores energy, brown adipose tissue (BAT) is specialized for energy dissipation and considered as a potential weapon to combat obesity by uncoupling mitochondrial respiratory chain and ATP synthesis.
