  EASTBIO Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis
  Dr Y Feng, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanisms that modulate the pre-neoplastic stage of tumourigenesis in vivo are largely unknown due to the lack of suitable animal models.
  EASTBIO The role and optimisation of the microbiome in molluscan larval development
  Dr T Bean, Dr FB Batista, Dr M Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Bivalve hatcheries produce millions of juvenile animals for on-growing in aquaculture farms worldwide.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Analyzing network formation during brain tumour initiation
  Dr D Sieger, Prof P Uhlén
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. High grade brain tumours (HGBTs) represent a complex and devastating disease and are posing an unmet clinical need. These tumours resist multi-modal therapies and survival times are only 15 months on average.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  Our PhD programmes - A World-Class Research Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each year we offer a wide number of studentships to high calibre students interested in scientific research in a wide range of areas across medicine and veterinary medicine.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Learning to communicate: How do pheromones work in social and solitary bees and how did they evolve?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Honeybees, bumblebees and other bee species are facing a multitude of threats from disease, pesticide exposure and loss of habitat.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The impact of virus-specific neutralizing antibodies on oncolytic virus-mediated anti-tumour immune responses
  Dr E Iiett, Dr F Errington-Mais
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Initially developed as cytotoxic agents, the anti-tumour properties of oncolytic viruses (OV) are now known to be largely immune-mediated.
