  Managing Ethical Supply Chain Risks Using Traditional Collaborative Approaches
  Dr N Palit, Dr K Fryer
Application Deadline: 13 May 2019
Project reference number. GSBS-2019-120. The nature of the risks present in the supply chain is ever changing. One of the modern day concerns of the supply chains is to manage the ethical risks including sensitive issues such as child labour exploitation, modern-day slavery, and human trafficking.
  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round
Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  The long and winding roads of the cell
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Intracellular membrane trafficking is essential for many cellular processes and its impairment leads to over 80 major human diseases.
  Understanding mechanisms of Notch regulation and misregulation in endocytic pathway
  Dr M Baron, Dr R Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Notch is a developmental signalling receptor with widespread and important roles in metazoan development and also in adult stem cell regulation.
  Identification and characterisation of protein depalmitoylases
  Dr J Greaves, Prof M Wheatley
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
S-acylation (palmitoylation) is an essential post-translational modification (PTM) involving the reversible attachment of fatty acids, such as palmitic acid, onto the cysteine residues of proteins.
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Understanding the role of lymphatic endothelial cell dysfunction in mediating diabetic heart disease
  Dr R Katare
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetes, affects endothelial cells function leading to a condition called diabetic microangiopathy. Majority of the focus is on understanding diabetes-induced changes in arterial or venous endothelial cells.
