  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
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.
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  An in vivo genetic screen of lung function candidate genes using tissue specific RNAi in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr M Georgiou, Dr I Sayers
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of worldwide mortality and morbidity. Current strategies in management depend on accurate diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment.
  Genetics and Genomics of Type 2 Diabetes: using human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes and to identify novel translational opportunities
  Prof M I McCarthy, Dr A Gloyn
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We focus on the use of human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes, and to identify novel translational opportunities.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Statistical Genetics: Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human cardiovascular and haematological traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Genomics of Diabetes: Functional characterisation of T2D GWAS
  Dr A Gloyn
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Diabetes already affects 415 million people worldwide. In the UK, there will be 5M people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) by 2025, accounting for 1 in 30 prescriptions and £25 billion in annual NHS costs.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
