ion channel PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 18 ion channel PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Self funded MSc by Research or PhD in Biology: Ion channel signalling in cancer cells

Lead supervisor: Dr W Brackenbury. The student will be registered with the Department of Biology. Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. Read more

Ion channel signalling in cancer cells

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing. Read more

Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated. Read more

Exploring regulation of pacemaking ion channels by cytokines

PhD Studentship in Cardiac Electrophysiology. 3-year NHLI-funded PhD post. Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship starting on 1 October 2024 from UK candidates with a Master’s degree (Merit and above) in cardiovascular physiology, immunology or a related discipline. Read more

Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system. Read more

Machine Learning and Molecular Modelling in Mass Spectrometry

This PhD project will harness the power of computational modelling and machine learning (A.I.) to analyse data obtained by mass spectrometry experiments and predict structural characteristics of biomolecules and their interactions. Read more

Investigating the role of P2X7 receptor intracellular domains in cell signalling

Project description. P2X7 receptors are ion channels that are found on the surface of immune cells, where they respond to the binding of extracellular ATP, a damage signal released by dying cells in infection and injury. Read more

Cardiac Harmony: Modelling Heart Beats with Stem Cells and Code

Despite significant advancements in cardiac research, heart disease remains a leading cause of mortality globally. Unexpected cardiac events can occur even in young, fit individuals engaged in routine activities. Read more

MScR: Cystic fibrosis: restoring ion transport with small molecules

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by dysfunction of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a unique ATP-binding cassette transporter that functions as an ATP-gated anion channel, playing a pivotal role in salt and water movement across epithelial tissues (1). Read more
