  Biotic and abiotic factors influencing the epidemics of cassava viral diseases in Africa.
  Dr S Bouvaine
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cassava mosaic begomoviruses (CMVs) (family Geminiviridae) and Cassava brown streak ipomoviruses (CBSIs) (family Potyviridae) are transmitted by whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci species complex) and are causing two of the worst diseases that constrain production of the important staple crop cassava.
  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.

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Resistance Evolution in Response to Emerging Wildlife Disease. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barbara Tschirren, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology and Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  The influence of Apolipoprotein E genotypes on pathways of neurotransmission measured in vivo. Implications for dementia research
  Dr M De Marco, Prof A Venneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Monoaminergic midbrain nuclei are currently emerging as major players in the definition of the pathological changes of early Alzheimer’s disease (AD) stages.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., Ebola, pandemic influenza, chikungunya fever etc.).
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Modelling the association between blood pressure variability and cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Barrett
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of mortality in the UK, with over 150,000 cardiovascular-related deaths each year. By identifying novel cardiovascular risk factors we can improve cardiovascular risk prediction, so that individuals at greatest risk may benefit from preventative intervention.
  Investigating the remodelling of inhibitory brain circuits in early Alzheimer’s disease. PhD in Medical Studies (MRC GW4 BioMed DTP)
  Prof A Randall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Professor Andrew Randall, Medical School, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter. Dr Jonathan Witton, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
