  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
  Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease
  Dr J Lamb, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement.
  Investigating the regulation of the RNA modifying enzyme ADAR1 and how it regulates other biological pathways and diseases
  Dr M O'Connell, Dr L Keegan, Dr JN Nováček
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ADAR enzymes convert adenosine into inosine in dsRNA. Inosine is one of the most abundant and best studied modifications found in different classes of RNA.
  Role of Desmoglein-3 in regulating the YAP-Hippo pathway in cancer
  Dr H Wan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD within a multidisciplinary and integrative research team in The Centre of Immunobiology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute of Dentistry.
  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  New Dimensions in Cannabinoid Receptor 2 Therapeutic Development: Exploring Spatial and Temporal Signalling Bias
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  The molecular mechanisms of thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy cardiovascular system relies on the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells) and heart cells (cardiomyocytes) to function normally.
