  Extracellular Matrix Abnormalities in Cardiac Insulin Resistance as a Therapeutic Target of Chronic Heart Failure
  Dr L Kang, Prof C Lang
Applications accepted all year round
Description. Diabetes and chronic heart failure (CHF) often coexist such that each condition may affect the other in terms of causation and outcome.
  Oral delivery of insulin for diabetes therapy: Development and evaluation of insulin loaded polymer/lipid based carrier systems
  Dr A Vangala
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that affects nearly 500 million people worldwide. Its hallmark feature, hyperglycaemia is caused due to insulin deficiency and/or resistance.

  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  The effects of short chain fatty acids on pre-adipocyte differentiation and depot specific adipocyte lipogenesis and insulin sensitivity in childhood.
  Prof J Shield, Dr C Perks
Applications accepted all year round
The influence of dietary fibre in weight maintenance is well established and is likely mediated through the microbiome with increased production of short chain fatty acids (SCFAs – e.g.
