  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  The effects of Interleukin-1 primed mesenchymal stem cells on hypoxic-ischemic brain damage
  Dr E Pinteaux, Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxic-ischemic brain damage is one of the main causes of death and neurological disability after stroke worldwide.
  Immunoproteasomes as novel therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  PhD Studentship in Vascular Biology and Neuroscience: 3-Dimensional Mapping of the Retinal Neurovascular Unit in Diabetes
  Prof M Taggart, Dr D Steel
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 28 September 2020. 3 Year PhD. Overview. This project seeks to unravel the cellular mechanisms underlying diabetic retinopathy (DR), a leading cause of adult blindness.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Investigating how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses
  Dr R Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disease (Dr. Raymond CC Chang’s Lab. Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Neurodeglab) is looking for a pro-active PhD student with first class honor or equivalent.
  Exploring the functional and pathological relevance of DJ-1 phosphorylation
  Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DJ-1 is a small conserved protein of 189 residues which is ubiquitously expressed and primarily localized to the cytoplasm, but also found in the nucleus and associated with mitochondria.
  Embryonic stem cell patterning using microfabricated patterns of parylene-C
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Micro-patterns of parylene-C on a SiO2 background can precisely guide the growth of neurons and astrocytes, derived from the rat hippocampus.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
