  Translational Cardiovascular Research, Cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans
  Prof C Antoniades
Application Deadline: 11 January 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.
  Development of in vitro 3D white adipose cell culture models for investigating white adipose cell biology and genetics of fat distribution
  Prof R D Cox
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Commercial partner. OxSyBio Ltd, Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the novel development of 3D printed living mammalian tissues for use in research and the clinic.
  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.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the interface between obesity and severe mental illness: a genomics approach
  Research Group: Institute of Health and Wellbeing
  Dr R Strawbridge, Dr I Dahlman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Rona Strawbridge. Ingrid Dahlman. PhD project summary. People suffering from severe mental illnesses (such as depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) have a substantially increased risk of obesity.
  (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
