  Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human complex traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

  Precision Medicine DTP – Development of clinically relevant models of undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma using a genetic screening approach
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Prof V Brunton, Dr L Boulter, Dr M Taylor, Prof D M Salter
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Sarcomas are relatively uncommon cancers thought to arise from pluripotent mesenchymal stem cells. Undifferentiated pleomorphic soft tissue sarcoma (UPS), though one of the commonest sarcoma subtypes encountered, exemplify the limitations of historical progress in sarcoma therapy.
  Doctoral Programme in Precision Medicine – 4 year fully funded PhD

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are offering up to 32 PhD studentships in 2020/21 to high quality UK/EU applicants, providing full tuition fee and a stipend of at least £15,285 per year.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Synthetic chromosomes to understand genome instability
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof N Gilbert, Prof A Marston
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Genomic instability in cancer has been known for many years; the advent of genomic analyses in the late 1990’s enabled these changes to be characterized in detail.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Improved classification of myositis disease subtypes using statistical genetics approaches for stratified medicine
  Dr J Lamb, Dr AM Morris, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Keywords. idiopathic inflammatory myopathy, myositis, genetics, disease classification, stratified medicine. Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) are heterogeneous autoimmune diseases characterized by inflammation of skeletal muscle (myositis).
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Identifying personalised prevention factors for dementia: a precision medicine approach using the UK Biobank cohort (KhondokerU20FMH)
  Dr M Khondoker, Prof M Hornberger
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aims and background. The project will utilise the power of ‘Big data’ from 500,000 participants of the UK Biobank cohort to identify personalised prevention factors for dementia.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

I have had a longstanding focus on inherited heart muscle diseases, in particular hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a relatively common Mendelian condition which puts affected individuals at risk of sudden cardiac death.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Dissecting the biophysics of ocular transcription factors in vivo
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr D Papadopoulos, Prof W Bickmore, Prof V Vukojevic
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Of the ~1,600 human TF genes, up to ~25% (~400 genes) are expected to be haploinsufficient with a plethora of them leading to developmental disorders1, underlining that transcription factor (TF) abundance (dosage) plays a major role during cell and tissue specification.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Leveraging protein quantitative trait loci to discover new biology and therapeutic targets
  Prof J Wilson, Dr P Navarro, Dr L Klaric
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are attractive drug targets, however, a prerequisite for successful drug development is efficacy, which is predicated on the drug target playing a causal role in disease1.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Exploring the influence of proteogenomics in patients receiving biologic drugs for treatment of psoriatic arthritis
  Prof A Barton, Dr James Bluett, Dr N Nair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis, associated with the chronic skin condition psoriasis, which causes joint inflammation.
