  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The project will aim to discover novel molecular mechanisms that could promote central nervous system regeneration. The focus will be on how neurons and glia interact to match their cell populations and functions, and on the regenerative potential of glial cells.
  Aiming to elucidate the pathophysiological basis of human neurological disorders from genetic molecular networks to complex neural systems.
  Dr Z Cader
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Aiming to elucidate the pathophysiological basis of human neurological disorders from genetic molecular networks to complex neural systems.
  Investigation of the anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin in a mouse model of chronic neuroinflammation – a route for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease?
  Dr E Gyengesi, Prof GM Muench
Applications accepted all year round
This project will investigate the effect of chronic glial activation on brain structure and function, and test the efficacy of two cytokine-suppressive anti-inflammatory drugs (CSAIDs) against chronic glial activation and the resulting neuronal damage.
  PhD in Cancer Research - Targeting neuroinflammation in mTORC1-driven brain tumours
  Dr A Tee, Prof A Harwood
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project will not only create a new brain tumour model, but will also give us valuable information on mTOR’s involvement in the development of brain tumours.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Role of hypoxia in promotion of higher grade glioblastoma
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr V Vinader, Dr K Afarinkia
Applications accepted all year round
Glioblastomas are categorized into four grades. Grade I is essentially benign and slow growing, and most amenable to treatment. Grade II tumors are larger and invade surrounding tissue.
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Dr B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
