  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.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  The use of green tea strategies combined with exercise training to promote enhanced fat oxidation and cardio-metabolic health: part 1
  Dr J Roberts, Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/cambridge-centre-for-sport-and-exercise-sciences.
  The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance
  Dr O Spendiff
Applications accepted all year round
Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance.
  Body Image Distortion in Men (RDF19/HLS/PSY/CORNELISSEN)
  Dr K Cornelissen
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Is body image distortion in men driven by variation in perceived body fat and muscle mass or, as in women, perceived body fat alone?.
  Obesity, metabolic health and prostate cancer: using abdominal and pelvic imaging to characterize obesity and adipose tissue distribution
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr E Allott, Dr S Jain, Dr G Prue
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
There are currently no well-established modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer. Some evidence suggests that obesity is linked to more aggressive prostate cancer and worse outcomes, but studies are inconsistent and mechanisms are not understood.
  ECLIPSE: Effect of carnitine on Liver steatosis, Insulin sensitivity, Plasma glucose, Skeletal muscle metabolism and Energetics - a pilot study
  Prof G Aithal, Prof P Greenhaff, Dr S Bawden, Prof P Gowland
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
This ambitious project unites institutional research priorities in translational imaging, liver disease and musculoskeletal health.
  Deciphering the role of fat tissues in maintaining systemic glucose and energy metabolism
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
  Targeting the gut microbiome to prevent human diseases associated with obesity and poor metabolic health
  Prof K Brown, Dr T Yates, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Excess body weight, insulin resistance and inflammation are underlying causes of the metabolic syndrome and greatly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which in turn are risk factors for metabolically-driven cancers.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
