  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding the molecular pathophysiology of stress on the developing and adult brain
  Dr N Krone, Dr V T Cunliffe
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Stress is associated with significant morbidity including depression and anxiety. Activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis leads to synthesis of cortisol, which is a key mediator of the pathology of chronic stress.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genome-wide, gene-specific patterns of glucocorticoid-receptor co-regulators critical for growth and skeletal development
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof C Farquharson, Prof T Freeman, Prof S Faisal Ahmed, Prof L Savendahl
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are a class of steroid hormones that bind and activate the intra-cellular GC receptor (GR), and regulate transcription of many genes that govern the effects of GCs.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mining large international genetic datasets to identify new therapeutic targets in giant cell arteritis through innovative genetic methodology
  Prof A Morgan, Prof JH Barrett, Dr A Mälarstig
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the commonest primary systemic vasculitis, occurring exclusively after 50yrs. Irreversible ischaemic complications, including blindness, occur in 19% of UK patients, despite prompt treatment.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  MRC-funded PhD in Precision Medicine 2018/2019
 . We are offering up to 32 PhD studentships in 2019/20 to high quality UK/EU applicants, providing full tuition fees and a stipend of at least £14,777 per year.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Integrated system for rigorous personalised diagnosis for Giant Cell Arteritis
  Prof S Ferson, Prof A Morgan, Dr M de Angelis, Dr C Tsoumpas
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisors. (1) Prof Scott Ferson is the director of the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty of the University of Liverpool. https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/engineering/staff/scott-ferson/.
