  Statistical Genetics: Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human cardiovascular and haematological traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.
  Genetic Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease: Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Prof M Farrall, Dr AG Goel
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Cardiovascular health in patients with inflammatory joint diseases: a genetic approach to understanding excess mortality
  Dr J Bowes, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Patients with chronic inflammatory joint diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) which is the major contributory factor to the observed early mortality in these patient groups.
  Resistance and susceptibility in interactions between apple and woolly aphids (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_6)
  Ms F Fernández, Dr G Powell
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Genetic constraints on adaptive evolution
  Dr M Reuter
Applications accepted all year round
Research in my group aims to understand how the genetic encoding of traits affects whether and how they will respond to selection.
  Understanding the role of endothelin pathway genetic variants in coronary artery disease
  Dr T Webb, Prof S Ye, Dr C Nelson
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Coronary artery disease (CAD), which leads to angina and heart attacks, is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors.
  Bowel and Cancer Research funded PhD studentship: A Novel Genetic System to Study Tumour Heterogeneity and Clonal Competition in Gastrointestinal Tract Cancers
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr S McDonald
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
A graduate with an interest in biology, genetics and their application for the study of the basic mechanisms of cancer, with or is expecting at least an upper second class honours degree in Biology, Genetics or a revelant subject area, is required for this project aimed at developing a novel genetic system to study tumour heterogeneity and clonal competition in gastrointestinal cancers.
  The genetic contribution of biological age differences in disease risk
  Dr C Nelson, Prof F Dudbridge, Dr V Codd
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Telomere length (TL) is reflective of cellular age, shortens over time and is proposed as a marker of biological age. Here in Leicester we are measuring mean Leucocyte Telomere Length (LTL) in all 500,000 individuals participating in UK Biobank, these exciting data will be used for this project.
  Genetic variants associated with multiple diseases
  Prof M Tobin
Applications accepted all year round
As increasing numbers of genetic associations are discovered, it is becoming clear that some genetic variants are associated with more than one or human phenotype (including disease phenotypes).
