  Contribution of Trichoplein (TCHP) to impaired proteostasis and vascular senescence in brain vasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr A Caporali, Prof G Hardingham
Application Deadline: 23 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Experimental and clinical studies have suggested that age-related cerebrovascular dysfunction plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of human well-being is a fundamental aspect of our existence and is often particularly vulnerable upon diagnosis and/or progression of long-term neurological conditions for which there is no cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
  Studying how learning affects the representation of visual objects in Drosophila eye and brain networks
  Prof M Juusola
Application Deadline: 15 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective of this project is to work out how large neural populations in the early fly visual system and the midbrain represent visual objects and their memories in space-time.
  What is the impact of atypical neurogenesis on brain activity, cognition and behaviour?
  Dr A McNeill, Dr M Freeth
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurogenesis is the process by which stem cells form brain cells. This process is disrupted by genetic mutations causing childhood neurological disorders which cause symptoms such as learning disability, behaviour problems and epilepsy.
  The Role of Diversity Training in an Era of Business and Socio-Economic Uncertainty: Managing Migrant Workers’ Social Integration at the Workplace in UK Organisations
  Dr F Mitsakis, Dr P Mendonca
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research study will examine the extent to which diversity training is implemented in UK businesses as an attempt to facilitate their migrant workers’ social integration at the workplace.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  The cognitive Neuroscience of Attention and Working Memory, and Causal Functional Connectivity.
  Dr E Feredoes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab uses cutting-edge combinations of neuroimaging and analytic techniques to investigate aspects of human cognition. Specifically, we’re interested in the following.
  Motivation, competition, collaboration and goal-setting – How can we improve post-stroke rehabilitation?
  Dr S Dunne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engaging with brain injury rehabilitation is critical in improving the quality of life and maximising the functional improvements that survivors, such as those post-stroke, can make.
