  Investigating glial cell dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr G Sheridan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses.
  A novel microfluidic co-culture platform to study functional responses of neuronal and glial cells ex vivo
  Dr P P. Esteban
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three year Postgraduate studentship from ambitious, self-motivated candidates with an interest in refining their skills in the design of microfluidic devices and cell culture.
  Immunoproteasomes as novel therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  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
  Prof 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.
