  Stimulating the sirtuin family in the treatment of cancer.
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year, thousands of people face cancer diagnosis. Survival rates are high, but many face devastating disabilities and long-term side effects resulting from currently treatments.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
  Prof K Stellos, Prof I Spyridopoulos, Dr A Gatsiou, Dr S Tual-Chalot
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation comprises a fundamental biological process tasked to protect our body against invasion of microorganisms (e.g virus, bacteria, etc).
  KETOGENIC DIET: An in vitro single-cell imaging and molecular analysis approach to determine and therapeutically target the control principles of neuronal bioenergetics for the treatment of epilepsy with ketogenic diet
  Prof J Prehn
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS)CNS. Glutamate receptor activation imposes a significant work load and energy demand on neurons which requires neurons to increase ATP production.
  Validation of microRNAs as novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets in ischaemic brain injury
  Dr S Pfeiffer, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ischaemic stroke is a leading cause of death and most common cause of acquired major disability resulting from death of brain tissue and focal neurological deficits; however, despite decades of research, treatment options remain limited and the lack of therapeutic treatment strategies is a critical clinical problem.
  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  (MCRC Non-Clinical) Defining the Bcl-2 family interactome to optimise breast cancer cell response to chemotherapy
  Dr A P Gilmore, Prof K R Brennan, Dr R Clarke, Dr S Howell
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. More than 80% of breast cancer (BC) patients can be treated with targeted drugs like tamoxifen or trastuzumab, which have significantly reduced mortality rates over the past 20 years.
  (MCRC Non-Clinical) The feasibility, benefits and risks of heart sparing strategies in lung cancer radiotherapy
  Dr G Price, Dr A McWilliam, Dr A Salem
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. Patients are often frail with multiple co-morbidities, making them unsuitable for surgery.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  How do people move from contemplating to attempting suicide: Investigating the cognitive mechanisms of loss of control and limited awareness of goals
  Dr D Pratt, Dr W Mansell, Dr S Tai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suicide is a leading cause of death and it remains unclear how individuals transition from contemplating suicide (ideators) to attempting suicide (attempters).
  How do phosphodiesterases contribute to the pathophysiology of heart failure?
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure (HF) remains a major cause of death with worse 5-year survival than all forms of cancer combined. This project seeks to understand the mechanisms that underlie two important contributing factors to death in HF patients; i) contractile failure and, ii) the increased propensity for arrhythmias.
