  Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors
  Dr L Lander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.
  Modulating cell signalling regulates morphogenesis of the developing nervous system
  Dr M E Pownall, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors such as FGFs and Wnts are important signalling molecules that regulate development and are also known to cause disease when they go wrong.
  Using gene editing and pluripotent stem cells to investigate cardiovascular cell signalling (SMITHU20DTP)
  Dr J Smith, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The heart is a multi-cellular organ, with intercellular communication between cardiomyocytes, cardiac fibroblasts, and endothelial cells all necessary to maintain normal cardiac function.
  Analysis of the role of microRNAs in the regulation of NF-kappaB dynamics and function
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-κB is one of most important cell signalling systems in the body and controls inflammation and cell fate. NF-κB signalling involves complex dynamics involving oscillations of the NF-κB complex between the nucleus and cytoplasm in activated cells.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Mathematical modelling of immune cell host-pathogen interactions
  Dr P Paszek, Dr M Muldoon, Prof I Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammals have central cellular defence systems that resist infection by a range of pathogens. These involve the NF-κB and STAT signalling systems, which we have shown to use dynamics and timing to encode pathogen-associated signals.
  Oncogene-induced reprogramming of heterotypic cellular interactions
  Research Group: Dr Alessandro Esposito
  Dr A Esposito, Dr J Shields
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accumulation of mutations during the development of cancer subverts normal cell-to-cell communication and cellular decisions.
  Regulation of BCR signalling by DNA damage response and P53 protein
  Prof M Mráz
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a motivated PhD student that would like to work on the following project funded by the ERC (European Research Council) Starting grant.
  Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget.
