  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: 26 July 2019
Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Understanding and Treating Metabolic Liver Disease: Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments
  Prof J Tomlinson, Prof L Hodson
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments.
  Functional coronary artery disease genetics: investigating the role of the candidate gene in models of In vivo cardiovascular disease
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
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.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round
Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Harnessing stem cells to develop regenerative therapies for childhood heart disease.
  Dr E Porrello, Dr D Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
LABORATORY OVERVIEW. The Cardiac Regeneration Laboratory is seeking highly motivated PhD students to work on a project related to understanding the underlying causes of congenital heart disease and developing novel regenerative therapies.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  A potential role for Epithelial Mesenchymal Trans differentiation (EMT) in the Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Periodontitis is a ubiquitous chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the supporting structures of teeth; the most common form is chronic periodontitis which if untreated results in the breakdown of soft tissues and bone, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Alzheimer’s disease: Understanding the interaction of microglia risk genes
  Prof P Taylor, Dr E Lloyd-Evans
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Microglia, the immune cells of the brain, may be protective in Alzheimer’s disease, encircling amyloid plaques, clearing debris and limiting further inflammatory damage.
  Investigating the molecular mechanism of inflammatory bowel disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round
Cohn’s disease together with ulcerative colitis (UC) are the two main variations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 2.5-3 million people in Europe are affected by inflammatory bowel disease with a direct healthcare cost of 4.5-6 billion Euro per year.
  Statistical Genetics: Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human cardiovascular and haematological traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.
