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.
  The influence of Apolipoprotein E genotypes on pathways of neurotransmission measured in vivo. Implications for dementia research
  Dr M De Marco, Prof A Venneri
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Monoaminergic midbrain nuclei are currently emerging as major players in the definition of the pathological changes of early Alzheimer’s disease (AD) stages.
  SCENARIO: Roles of woodland birds in the transmission of emerging tree diseases
  Dr G Barrett, Dr R Broughton, Dr K Schönrogge, Prof R W Jackson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ecologically important tree species in the UK are facing increased threats from invasive pests and pathogens, spurred on by climate change and globalization.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Waking up to neurodegenerative diseases: development of an awake mouse preparation to investigate neurovascular dysfunction in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr C Howarth, Dr J Berwick
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
To maintain healthy brain function, local cerebral blood flow must be matched to neuronal metabolic demand through a dynamic relationship termed neurovascular coupling.

  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.
  Identifying Environmental Factors of Soil Transmitted and Food Borne Helminth Diseases in Border Regions of Northern Thailand
  Dr G Gobert, Dr S Telfer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Geoff Gobert of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Sandra Telfer of the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Understanding the genetic and environmental risk factors that cause multiple sclerosis
  Prof L Fugger, Dr K Attfield
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Professor Lars Fugger leads a neuroinflammatory research group (www.ocni.co.uk), with the primary research focus being to understand the genetic and environmental risk factors that cause multiple sclerosis.
