  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Transfer of copper-resistance genes in the soil microbiome and relationship to horizontal gene transfer of antimicrobial resistance genes
  Prof B Keevil, Dr M Dumont
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Our current NERC study investigates antimicrobial resistance horizontal gene transfer, principally via plasmid conjugation transfer of third generation extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) and fourth generation carbapenemase from E.
  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease
  Assoc Prof J Hughes, Prof T Milne
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Hughes group is interested in how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease. The ~22 thousand genes in the mammalian genome are present in the DNA of every cell but are used in complex patterns in different cell types and organs.
  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: 11 January 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.
  Identification and functional characterisation of BRIT1/MCPH1 synthetic lethal genes to treat breast and ovarian cancer
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
Women who have undergone surgery for breast and ovarian cancer often have additional chemotherapy to kill residual cancer cells and prevent recurrence.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Application of data science to inherited genetic variants of apoptosis genes and susceptibility to breast cancer
  Prof A Cox, Dr A Droop, Dr K Walters
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The identification of the breast and ovarian cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 two decades ago has resulted in both improved risk assessment for patients and the use of PARP-inhibitors for treatment.
  Application of data science to inherited genetic variants of apoptosis genes and susceptibility to breast cancer
  Prof A Cox, Dr K Walters
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Background. The identification of the breast and ovarian cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 two decades ago has resulted in both improved patient risk assessment and the use of PARP-inhibitors for treatment.
  Imprinting and ploidy in a social insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project asks how can imprinted genes exist in a haplodiploid organism.
  The role of novel genes in CNS axon regeneration
  Dr Z Ahmed, Prof A Logan
Applications accepted all year round
CNS injuries result in considerable mortality and morbidity, with limited prospects of recovery for acquired disability. Lost central nervous system (CNS) neurons are not replaced and severed CNS axons do not regenerate.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
