  When do astrocytes contribute to the control of brain blood flow?
  Dr C Howarth
Applications accepted all year round
In order that the brain can function normally, it is essential that blood flow within the brain is well matched to neuronal metabolic demand.
  Understanding Neuroinflammation through advanced in vitro 3D modelling using human Pluripotent Stem Cells
  Dr S Cowley, Prof W S James
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Microglia - brain-resident macrophages - carry out homeostatic surveillance functions in the brain, clearing dying cells, extracellular debris, and pruning synapses during development.
  Using biomaterials and 3D bioprinting to model the neurovascular unit in dementia
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, cerebrovasculature and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  PhD in Cancer Research - Targeting neuroinflammation in mTORC1-driven brain tumours
  Dr A Tee, Prof A Harwood
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project will not only create a new brain tumour model, but will also give us valuable information on mTOR’s involvement in the development of brain tumours.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  The role of cellular metabolism in blood flow regulation using novel imaging approaches
  Dr S Serres
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is interdisciplinary and translational, combining magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and spectroscopy methods, immunohistochemistry and molecular biology to study cellular metabolism and blood flow regulation in health and disease.
  Bioengineering stem cells for neuroprotection against stroke
  Dr N Vasudevan, Dr E Delivopoulos, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
"Stroke, in particular ischaemic stroke, is the third major cause of death worldwide and there is significant health impairment in survivors.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round
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.
