  Functional coronary artery disease genetics: investigating the role of the candidate gene in models of In vivo cardiovascular disease
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advancements in its treatment coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in both the UK and world wide, accounting for over 66,000 deaths in the UK each year.
  An intelligent scheme to identify novel drug targets through analysing the DNA repairome in drug resistant cancer?
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Prof C Parris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Identifying the genetic determinants of translation rate in blood cells and characterising their relevance to human traits
  Dr E Turro, Dr W Astle, Dr M Frontini
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The central dogma of molecular biology states that genetically encoded information flows from DNA to mRNA to protein. The flow from DNA to mRNA occurs through a process called transcription and the flow from mRNA to protein through a process called translation.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Investigating convergent pathways regulating pancreatic and brain development in humans.
  Dr A Bhinge
Application Deadline: 27 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Dr Akshay Bhinge, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Professor Andrew Hattersley, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
  Moonlight activities for cyclin genes in plants (MOUBAYIDINJ18RS)
  Dr L Moubayidin
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of cell division in plant development is crucial to achieve coherent organ patterning, and bilateral and radial symmetry.
