  Characterising the human Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) synaptic proteome
  Dr C Henstridge, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 1 May 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 how protein interactions with non-coding RNA contribute to ALS-mediated degeneration of motor neurons.
  Dr J Boyne
Application Deadline: 25 April 2019
Six new fully funded PhD research studentships are offered in the School of Applied Sciences for a 23 September 2019 start. The School is made up of the Departments of Biological and Geographical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
  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].
  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.
  Protein quality control and neurodegenerative disease - to test the hypothesis that BAG6 contributes to the quality control of a range of disease-linked proteins in the cytosol
  Dr L Swanton, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round
Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, which if allowed to accumulate can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death [1].
