  Exploring appetite control and weight management strategies in individuals from low and high socio-economic status (SES) groups
  Dr N Buckland
Applications accepted all year round
Individuals from low SES groups are more likely to be obese compared to individuals from higher SES groups. Recent research has shown that low SES groups are more responsive to dietary manipulations that promote increased food intake (e.g.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  An integrated carbon capture and conversion process to produce mineral products for large-scale use
  Dr W Afzal, Dr M S Imbabi
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing demand for clean energy has led to significant research towards the development of energy-efficient and environment-friendly technological solutions of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) which encompasses methods to remove CO2 from the flue gas and from the atmosphere, recycling the CO2 for utilization and safe storage options.
  Low carbon energy: innovative technologies for CCUS
  Dr W Afzal, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing demand for clean energy has led to massive research activities towards the development of energy efficient and environment friendly technological solutions of Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) which encompasses methods to remove CO2 from the flue gas and from the atmosphere, recycling the CO2 for utilization storage options without safety concerns.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Trans-generational transmission of obesity and obesity-induced liver disease – a role for maternal microbiota and Toll-like receptors
  Dr J Oben, Dr P Taylor
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The United Kingdom adult population prevalence of obesity is 30% and with 30% of children - overweight or obese. Additionally, 26% of women of reproductive age are obese and one in five pregnant women is obese.
  Advanced electron beam sources
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round
Electron beam technology is a unique technology that enables joining dissimilar and otherwise hard to weld metals with very precise and clean welds while minimizing the heating of the material outside the working area.
  Emerging application of gas plasma technologies
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round
Gas plasmas generate reactive environments at low temperature that can trigger chemical and bio-chemical processes that are hard to initiate by other means.
  An examination of the relationship between unhealthy weight and alcohol consumption in young women
  Prof D Newbury-Birch, Dr L Ells
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Alcohol consumption at a young age is associated with a number of detrimental outcomes. These include physical and mental health issues, an impact on brain development, and an increased risk of accidents and injury.
  The effects of short chain fatty acids on pre-adipocyte differentiation and depot specific adipocyte lipogenesis and insulin sensitivity in childhood.
  Prof J Shield, Dr C Perks
Applications accepted all year round
The influence of dietary fibre in weight maintenance is well established and is likely mediated through the microbiome with increased production of short chain fatty acids (SCFAs – e.g.
