  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.
  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.
  Identification of the molecular mechanisms of longevity in long-lived mutants of insulin and Klotho signalling
  Dr T Kinnunen, Dr P McHugh
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The aim of this project is to understand at molecular level the cellular changes that are. regulated by insulin signalling and Klotho in longevity.
  Targeting BETA-Cell Failure in Lean Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
  Dr E Levelt, Prof S Plein
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Heart failure is a major health concern in patients with type 2 diabetes. While the focus of prevention in type 2 diabetes is on obesity, many people with type 2 diabetes are not overweight and it is poorly understood why lean people develop type 2 diabetes and how exactly this should be addressed.
  The failure of oncometabolites to adapt the type 2 diabetic heart and kidneys to hypoxia
  Dr M Dodd
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Nearly two thirds of all deaths associated with type 2 diabetes are from heart and kidney.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round
The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round
The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
  Adipose tissue functional responses to nutritional stress
  Dr K Manolopoulos, Prof D Calebiro
Applications accepted all year round
Obesity is the leading cause of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Adipose tissue dysfunction has been proposed as being central in the pathophysiology of obesity-related complications.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on the development of metabolic disease in the offspring
  Dr N Ashton, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
Pregnant Muslim women are exempt from the daily fast during the month of Ramadan; however many choose participate, wanting to share this experience with their families.
  Characterization of a Novel Human Myokine
  Dr A Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle, in addition to its traditional role in movement in the body, is involved in regulating physiological homeostasis and disease progression in other tissues.
