  Characterising the human Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) synaptic proteome
  Dr C Henstridge, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is caused by the breakdown of upper and lower motor neurons leading to the progressive weakness and atrophy of muscle, often resulting in respiratory failure and death within a few years of diagnosis.
  Investigating the pathophysiology of Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS) using rodent and human iPSC-based models
  Prof G Miles, Prof S Chandran
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
There is growing evidence that early changes in neuronal function contribute to the pathogenesis of Motor Neuron Disease/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (MND/ALS).
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
  Ghrelin-based therapies for ALS – understanding mechanisms of action
  Dr G H Doherty, Dr J Harvey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ghrelin is an endogenous growth hormone secretagogue and neuropeptide that enhances food intake and appetite, and which signals via the GHSR1 receptor.
  Eukaryotic RNA biology: understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in gene expression
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
UPF1 is an RNA helicase that is conserved in all eukaryotes and it is best known for its role in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
  Crime scene based screening and identification of intimate body fluids
  Dr G Williams
Applications accepted all year round
The screening and identification of blood at crime scenes has been extensively and exhaustively researched with a range of strategies developed ranging from general LMG/KM testing through to ALS, Raman and Hyperspectral imaging.
  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  Ancient proteins as indicators of climatic and evolutionary change
  Dr N Boivin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry (ZooMS) is a powerful new method that is revolutionizing the ability of archaeologists to provide insights into faunal changes through time.
  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
