  PhD in Dementia Research - Alzheimer’s disease: Understanding the interaction of microglia risk genes
  Prof P Taylor, Dr E Lloyd-Evans
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Microglia, the immune cells of the brain, may be protective in Alzheimer’s disease, encircling amyloid plaques, clearing debris and limiting further inflammatory damage.
  Identifying glucose-dependent mechanisms underlying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round
Several risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease including diabetes and midlife obesity are age-dependent and have an obvious metabolic component resulting in impaired glucose metabolism.
  Use of electronic health records for efficient evaluation of biomarkers as diagnostic tools and surrogate endpoints in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr R Owen, Dr S Bujkiewicz, Dr T Quinn
Application Deadline: 3 April 2019
Dementia is recognised as one of the greatest public health threats of our time, both in the UK and globally. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but drug development has recently failed [1].
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  Investigating the link between autophagy and DNA damage in Alzheimer’s disease neurons
  Prof T McKay
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Many neuronopathic diseases affecting the ageing population such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS with Frontotemporal dementia and Lewy body dementia all result from the aberrant accumulation of substrate in intracellular vesicles within cortical neurons.
  Understanding how systemic infection exacerbates Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr MC Pardon
Applications accepted all year round
Systemic infection and inflammation are associated with the risk and progression of Alzheimer’s disease but the underlying mechanisms are unclear.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Microglial NFAT signalling and Alzheimer’s disease genetic risk networks
  Dr M Hill
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified robust risk loci for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These findings serve as a starting point for novel biological investigation and treatment strategies.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round
Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
