  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 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.
  Novel protein pathways regulating adipose tissue expansion during weight gain
  Prof G Nixon, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Adipose (fat) tissue expands during excessive food intake. While this is a normal physiological process to store energy, in sedentary individuals or those on a prolonged high fat diet, adipose tissue expansion can particularly occur abdominally, around several different organs.
  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.
  Translational Cardiovascular Research, Cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans
  Prof C Antoniades
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We undertake translational research by moving from bench to bedside and vice versa; our main focus is the cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system.
  Flocking dynamics in birds : the role of personality and experience
  Dr S Portugal
Applications accepted all year round
Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, and who is positioned where in the flock.
  The effects of short chain fatty acids on pre-adipocyte differentiation and depot specific adipocyte lipogenesis and insulin sensitivity in childhood.
  Prof J Shield, Dr C Perks
Applications accepted all year round
The influence of dietary fibre in weight maintenance is well established and is likely mediated through the microbiome with increased production of short chain fatty acids (SCFAs – e.g.
  (EPSRC DTP) Machine learning to explore the effect of Sarcopenia for patients undergoing cancer treatments
  Dr A McWilliam, Dr P Bromiley, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Half of people born after 1960 will develop cancer at some point in their lives, the majority will undergo treatment with the intention of curing their disease.
  Role and mechanism of mitochondrial transport proteins (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr E Kunji
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Mitochondria are central to the utilization of sugars and fat by the eukaryotic cell in order to synthesise ATP via oxidative phosphorylation.
