  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.
  Determining how immune responses are regulated at mucosal surfaces
  Prof M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  Improved classification of myositis disease subtypes using statistical genetics approaches for stratified medicine
  Dr J Lamb, Dr AM Morris, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Keywords. idiopathic inflammatory myopathy, myositis, genetics, disease classification, stratified medicine. Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are heterogeneous autoimmune diseases characterized by inflammation of skeletal muscle (myositis).
  Novel approaches for the treatment of dry eye disease
  Dr J Gabhann, Prof C Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is a key unifying factor for a range of ocular surface inflammatory diseases including autoimmune mediated dry eye disease (DED) and complications with corneal transplantation (CT).
  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
  Novel Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence approaches for microbiome analysis (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BASHTON)
  Dr M Bashton
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The microbiome, the collective genomic entity of all microbiota - bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, and viruses of an environment holds an immense amount of information, a considerable amount of improvement with respect to data analysis and real-time interpretation is still needed to bring research out of the lab and into everyday usage in our home environment and health system.
  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.
  Bayesian statistical approaches to identification of shared genetic signals
  Dr H Guo, Prof C Berzuini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. A number of genes have been found associated with health conditions of interest (e.g. autoimmune disease) from multiple studies.
  Characterising B cells in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Their role in susceptibility, pathogenesis, and treatment response
  Dr S Viatte, Dr M Menon, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints. In the UK, some patients who fail to respond to methotrexate (MTX) and TNF inhibitors (TNFi) are started on rituximab, and 20% will experience a favourable clinical response.
  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.
  MSc by Research Programme: Study the difference of inflammasome pathways in human neutrophils and macrophages
  Dr G Sollberger
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Using genotype-to-phenotype analyses to identify the genetic determinants of gastroenteritis caused by the food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  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.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
