  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.
  Statistical and machine learning approaches to risk prediction: Development, comparison and application of multi-state survival methods to modelling complex disease trajectories
  Dr M Crowther, Dr M Sweeting
Application Deadline: 3 April 2019
Multi-state survival models allow rich insights into complex disease pathways, where a patient may experience many non-fatal/intermediate events, and we wish to the investigate covariate effects for each specific transition between two states, not just for example, on the first event, or a terminal event [1].
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  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
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).
  An investigation of Demodex mites in optometric practice, including their impact on ocular surface inflammation and current treatment methods.
  Dr E Martin, Dr S Hagan, Dr I Pearce
Application Deadline: 14 April 2019
Project Description Background. Demodex folliculorum mites can be found in the eyelash follicles of humans. These are common organisms found more frequently with increasing age and in 95% of those over the age of 70 (Czepita et al, 2005).
  Inter-species transmission of Mycobacterium Avium Paratuberculosis (MAP) sheep and beef cattle farming systems – understanding risk factors and impact on livestock productivity.
  Dr P Davies, Prof N Williams
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
A fantastic opportunity for a self-motivated person to be at the forefront of researching an emerging ‘iceberg’ animal disease of sheep and cattle.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round
The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
  Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
World class teaching facilities with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research and the generation of impact. The University of Liverpool provides one of the largest concentrations of health and life science expertise in the UK.
