Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  Understanding the role of lymphatic endothelial cell dysfunction in mediating diabetic heart disease
  Dr R Katare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, affects endothelial cells function leading to a condition called diabetic microangiopathy. Majority of the focus is on understanding diabetes-induced changes in arterial or venous endothelial cells.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
