  Etiology, assessment and treatment of scoliosis
  Prof K Cheung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can be present in 3-4% of the population. If left untreated, some can progress to lead to back pain, shortness of breath and severe deformities.
  De Novo Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.

  Functional coronary artery disease genetics - Defining the function of new causal atherosclerosis genes from CAD GWAS loci using in vitro and in vivo models
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advancements in its treatment coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in both the UK and world wide, accounting for over 66,000 deaths in the UK each year.
  Understanding the functional role of the non-coding genome in cardiovascular disease
  Prof N Bobola, Prof N Hanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Inherited DNA sequence variants contribute to human diseases and susceptibility.
  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.
  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Genetic Architecture of Inherited Cardiomyopathy
  Prof M Farrall, Dr AG Goel, Prof H Watkins
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease
  Dr E Tzima
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow.
