  Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease
  Dr E Tzima
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow.
  Functional coronary artery disease genetics - Defining the function of new causal atherosclerosis genes from CAD GWAS loci using in vitro and in vivo models
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advancements in its treatment coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in both the UK and world wide, accounting for over 66,000 deaths in the UK each year.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

I have had a longstanding focus on inherited heart muscle diseases, in particular hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a relatively common Mendelian condition which puts affected individuals at risk of sudden cardiac death.
  Understanding the functional role of the non-coding genome in cardiovascular disease
  Prof N Bobola, Prof N Hanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Inherited DNA sequence variants contribute to human diseases and susceptibility.
  Repurposing cardiovascular disease medicines to prevent neurodegenerative diseases: Analyses of electronic health records
  Dr R Bauer, Prof L Wei
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a student to join our Pharmacoepidemiology and Medication Safety Research Cluster. We’re a group of clinicians and researchers working at University College London working with electronic health care data, with expertise in pharmacoepidemiology.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Investigating the molecular mechanisms and consequences of ANP aggregation for cardiovascular disease; a computational and experimental approach
  Dr J Madine, Prof D J Rigden, Dr M Winn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a cardiovascular hormone synthesised and secreted by myocytes in the atrial wall where it regulates atrial blood volume and vasodilation.
  Imaging in Preventive Cardiology Research: improving how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people
  Prof P Leeson, Dr A Lewandowski
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Preventive Cardiology Research Group aims to improve how we identify and prevent heart disease in young people. The group works in three areas.
  Translational Cardiovascular Research, Cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans
  Prof C Antoniades
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have established one of the world’s most extensively phenotyped cohorts of patients undergoing cardiac surgery, the Oxford Heart Vessels & Fat (ox-HVF) cohort.
  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.
  Ultrasound-triggered microbubble vibration physics towards enhanced local drug delivery
  Dr B. Helfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sonoporation, the reversible and transient opening of cell plasma membranes using ultrasound and microbubbles, is an exciting new approach to targeted and local therapeutic delivery in cancer and cardiovascular disease applications.
  Developing new physiological based tools and devices to improve heart function
  Dr R Ramchandra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) is a naturally occurring respiratory related modulation of heart rate giving rise to heart rate variability.
  Understanding the role of the pericardial adipose and locally synthesized steroids in the heart
  Prof LM Delbridge, Dr JR Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to join the Cardiac Phenomics laboratory at the University of Melbourne. Our University is ranked 9th in the world for pre-clinical biomedical research (Times Higher Education).
  Can neutrophil microvesicles influence the phenotype of monocytes - linking systemic inflammation with heart disease
  Dr V Ridger, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerosis, the build up of fibro-fatty plaques in the wall of arteries, is the underlying cause of the heart attack and stroke.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
