We have 12 amyloid PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Investigating the links between β-amyloid, osteoporosis and frailty in Alzheimer’s disease

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals1, significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia. Read more

PhD in Chemistry: Computer simulation of metal-amyloid interaction and its role in plaque formation

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the greatest healthcare challenges facing 21st century society. AD is associated with formation of fibrils and plaques in brain tissue that impair proper functioning of neurons. Read more

Seeing inside the brain of Alzheimer’s disease by cryoET

The aim of this PhD project is to determine the in situ 3D molecular structures associated with AD to understand disease mechanisms and molecular pathways that can lead to the rational design of a mechanism-based therapy. Read more

Development and Application of Enabling Methods for Drug Discovery

Transient protein-protein interactions (PPIs) control all cellular processes relevant to health and disease. Thus, a major problem in life-sciences research is to understand and manipulate PPIs with molecular and temporal resolution. Read more

6 new positions in the SNI Nanoscience PhD program

The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel invites highly motivated young scientists to apply for a fully funded PhD position in the SNI PhD program. Read more

Feeding microbes to protect the brain: does the gut microbiota mediate the risk-reducing effects of a healthy diet on Alzheimer’s disease?

Background. Ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias are critically needed, given the almost total lack of truly effective therapeutic options, even despite newer anti-amyloid drugs1. Read more
