  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Gene Regulation: How mammalian genes are switched on and off during development and differentiation and how this goes awry in human genetic diseases
  Prof D Higgs, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Mira Kassouf. Our laboratory addresses the question of how mammalian genes are switched on and off during development, lineage commitment and differentiation.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Trascriptome-wide association analysis of survival in colorectal cancer patients
  Prof M Dunlop, Dr E Theodoratou, Dr M Timofeeva
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cause of cancer death in UK with 15,900 CRC deaths in 2014. The risk of recurrence and death depends very much on the stage of disease at the time of diagnosis with 5-year survival rate >90% for stage I and.
  Mechanisms of regulating gene expression via selective mRNA transport
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round
A critical step in the gene expression pathway that is altered in cancer is nuclear export of mRNA. We have demonstrated that mRNA export is not constitutive, but highly selective and can regulate distinct biological processes through poorly understood mechanisms.
  4 Year Wellcome Triust PhD Programme: Investigating mRNA cap regulation in ES cells and T cells
  Prof V Cowling
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
IWe investigate the regulation and function of the mRNA cap, a modification of RNA essential for gene expression which integrates transcript processing and translation.
  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: How human genome variation affects gene expression
  Prof T Milne, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr D Waithe
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Epigenetics is often described as mechanisms that maintain gene expression profiles through multiple cell divisions long after the initiating signal has been lost.
  Statistical design and inference for single cell gene expression data
  Research Group: Division of Statistics
  Dr G Minas, Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round
The advances in biotechnology over the last few decades provide great opportunities for a better understanding of how our body works and how to keep it healthy and, through this, how diseases work and how to overcome them.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genome-wide, gene-specific patterns of glucocorticoid-receptor co-regulators critical for growth and skeletal development
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof C Farquharson, Prof T Freeman, Prof S Faisal Ahmed, Prof L Savendahl
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are a class of steroid hormones that bind and activate the intra-cellular GC receptor (GR), and regulate transcription of many genes that govern the effects of GCs.
  Regulation of mitochondrial gene expression (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr M Minczuk
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
