  The microbiome as a mediator of focal epilepsy
  Prof G Cavalleri, Dr N Delanty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a group of common brain disorders characterized clinically by the occurrence of recurrent unprovoked seizures. There are many different types of epilepsy, both common and rare.
  Targeting mRNA polyadenylation as novel treatment strategy in epilepsy
  Dr T Engel, Dr J Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epileptogenesis, the process leading to a reduced threshold for seizures after transient brain insults, is associated with large-scale changes in gene expression and processes, such as selective neuronal loss, gliosis and synaptic plasticity which ultimately lead to the formation of seizuregenerating neuronal networks, and the development of epilepsy.
  Molecular mechanisms of blood-brain barrier dysfunction and repair in epilepsy
  Dr C Ruedell Reschke, Prof D Henshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a common, chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. Current treatments fail at least one third of patients and we have no diseasemodifying therapies.
  Mechanisms of fever-induced epilepsy and related cognitive impairment
  Dr G Brennan, Prof D Henshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temporal-lobe epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder characterized by spontaneous recurrent seizures. Fever-induced seizures (febrile seizures) are the most common type of seizure in young children and are generally harmless.
  The breakdown of neurovascular coupling in the diseased state specifically Epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is the most common neurological condition in the UK, affecting 1 – 2 % of the population. Epilepsies often involve only a small area of the brain - the epileptic focus – and the abnormal activity can propagate out from there.
  KETOGENIC DIET: An in vitro single-cell imaging and molecular analysis approach to determine and therapeutically target the control principles of neuronal bioenergetics for the treatment of epilepsy with ketogenic diet
  Prof J Prehn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS)CNS. Glutamate receptor activation imposes a significant work load and energy demand on neurons which requires neurons to increase ATP production.
  Transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation for fatigue self-management in multiple sclerosis
  Mr T Chee-Wee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20027 Tan. Fatigue is one of the most common and persistent complaints from persons with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). Increasing physical activity is encouraged as a self-management strategy.
  Improving sensitivity and specificity to detect epileptogenic foci by coregistered PET and MR
  Prof K Herholz, Dr R Hinz, Dr S Muthu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a frequent disorder that can be caused by focal abnormalities in the brain, which may be treatable by surgical resection.
  Inflammation, the immune system and neurological disease
  Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation is now recognised as a key contributor to neuronal injury in both acute and chronic neurodegenerative disease. Many studies in this area have focussed on the post-injury inflammatory response and in particular on the role of specific cytokines in the central nervous system.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  Imaging brain networks in patients with Neurocysticercosis: identifying markers of seizure presentation
  Dr S Keller, Dr S Sinha
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting and novel fully-funded 4 year PhD programme in Neuroimaging / Neuroscience / Neurology in collaboration between the University of Liverpool, UK and the National Institute for Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore, India.
  What is the impact of atypical neurogenesis on brain activity, cognition and behaviour?
  Dr A McNeill, Dr M Freeth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurogenesis is the process by which stem cells form brain cells. This process is disrupted by genetic mutations causing childhood neurological disorders which cause symptoms such as learning disability, behaviour problems and epilepsy.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
