  Protein quality control and neurodegenerative disease - to test the hypothesis that BAG6 contributes to the quality control of a range of disease-linked proteins in the cytosol
  Dr L Swanton, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round
Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, which if allowed to accumulate can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death [1].
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  Investigating Early Worsening of Diabetic Retinopathy with Rapid Improvement in Glycaemic Control
  Prof S Harding, Dr P Burgess, Dr U Alam, Dr A Stylianides
Applications accepted all year round
Precis. Early worsening of diabetic retinopathy following rapid improvement in glycaemic control is a well-recognised phenomenon.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Estimating excess rates of disease-specific morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular disease patients
  Dr M Sweeting, Dr P Lambert
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Linkage of large-scale disease registry and population electronic health record (EHR) data has huge potential to address key questions regarding the life-course of patients following a cardiovascular disease (CVD) diagnosis, determining whether there are excess rates of comorbidity and determinants of variations in excess rates.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round
Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Gut microbiota as a novel nutritional target to influence systemic inflammation in overweight participants with asthma
  Dr N Williams, Dr C Nelson
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Asthma and obesity are globally important chronic inflammatory disorders that require urgent action, therefore the research aims of this proposed PhD are to.
  Using multi-omics data to understand the links between DNA and disease
  Dr A Brown, Prof E Pearson
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Genome-wide association studies have produced thousands of associations between DNA loci and risk of disease, but in most cases the immediate processes are unclear.
  Modulation of epigenetic phase variations in periodontal bacteria as a novel strategy for control of periodontal disease
  Dr K Hijazi, Dr G Cherukara
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Rationale and overall aim of the project. Periodontal disease (PD) is a major health issue in Scotland and worldwide with ever-increasing prevalence due to the increasing age of the population.
