  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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].
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  (MRC DTP) Role of stress granules in stress resistance and ageing: a double-edged sword
  Dr A J Whitmarsh, Prof M Ashe, Dr G Poulin
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

How cells cope with a stressful environment is a fundamental question in biology that significantly impacts human health. Appropriate stress responses underpin resistance to injury and disease thus promoting healthy life.
  Local control of synaptic protein synthesis in neurons by microRNA
  Dr J Hanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurons are a unique cell type because they are extremely polarised, with long processes extending millimetres from the nucleus in the cell body.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.

  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
