  Identification of genetic and genomic factors underpinning excess risk of rheumatoid arthritis in females
  Dr D Plant, Prof A Barton
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Affecting over 400,000 adults in the UK, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common disease that causes pain, swelling and damage in the joints.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: The Genomics of Birth Parameters and Cardiometabolic Disease: Reviving the Walker Birth Cohort
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Prof R Reynolds, Prof E Pearson
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. The Walker Birth cohort consists of 48,000 births in Tayside between 1952-1966, representing 75% of all births during this period (1).
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round
We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  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.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Combining genetic and functional genomic data to reveal underlying mechanisms of human disease
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr K Baillie, Prof C Haley
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. The unprecedented access to genome-wide association (GWAS) signals for a wide variety of human diseases opens up new opportunities to improve understanding of the underlying mechanisms of disease and identify new therapies.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the mechanisms of HIV-1 infection using mathematical modelling and phylogenetics
  Dr K Atkins, Prof J Albert, Dr S Hué, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. If HIV-1 infection is left untreated the viral load of chronically infected individuals can rise to million copies per millilitre of blood with hundreds of genetic variants.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
