  Diet and mTor signaling in ageing-related neurodegenerative disease
  Dr M J P Simons, Dr S Sweeney
Applications accepted all year round
Reducing food intake robustly increases lifespan in model organisms. When this data is extrapolated to humans, the predicted gain in healthy lifespan beats curing all stroke, diabetes, cancer and cardiac disease.
  The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance
  Dr O Spendiff
Applications accepted all year round
Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Obesity in a Brazilian population
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  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: 26 July 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
  DTC BIO 13 - Can diet influence natural UV protection?
  Dr C Llewellyn
Applications accepted all year round
Over the past two decades the zebrafish (Danio rerio) has become an important human model in the fields of genetics, toxicology and developmental biology to study a range of human diseases.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Dr K Whysall, Dr I Kanakis
Applications accepted all year round
Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): the role of soluble fibre
  Dr J Kyle, Dr G McDougall, Prof A Johnstone, Dr V Ranawana
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
This interdisciplinary PhD project will investigate the role of soluble dietary fibre in inflammatory bowel disease.
