  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Sparing and repairing myelin to treat multiple sclerosis
  Dr K Young
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune and neurodegenerative disease that results in oligodendrocyte death and central nervous system (CNS) demyelination.
  Mechanisms of selective cell vulnerability to protein assembly propagation in neurodegenerative disease
  Dr B Falcon
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The assembly of a small number of proteins into amyloid structures within neurons and, in some cases, glia underlies neurodegenerative disease.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
