  Structure and function of ion channels and transporters - For Chinese ( China Mainland Only) Students
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 5 January 2019
Research in the Pliotas group focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels and transporters.
  Heme regulation of signalling at potassium channels in the cardiovascular system
  Dr N Storey, Dr N W Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Ion channels in the smooth muscle of the cardiovascular system control blood pressure and cardiac contractility through changes in their membrane potential.
  Wellcome Trust 4-year Doctoral Programme in Ion Channels and Membrane Transport in Health and Disease (OXION)
Wellcome Trust 4-year Doctoral Programme in Ion Channels and Membrane Transport in Health and Disease (OXION). OXION is an Oxford-based consortium of world-leading scientists with a general interest in the role of ion channels and membrane transport in health and disease.
  The in situ molecular structure of active calcium ion channels
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr R Frank, Dr N Gamper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In the mammalian nervous system, specialized subcellular structures including synapses mediate learning and memory. The focal release of Ca2+ ions by ion channels is thought to be the signal that drives local, long-lasting structural remodeling within synapses.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
  Identifying nutrient and pesticide modulation of ion channels with Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  Dr R Barrett-Jolley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Many pesticides and food nutrients that animals (including people) are exposed to can have subtle, but potentially dangerous toxic effects by interactions with ion channels.
  Exploring the effects of decanoic acid on ion channel function and synaptic network activity
  Dr P Chen, Prof R S B Williams
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Most anti epileptic drugs modify synaptic transmission or neuronal excitability and act on ionotropic receptors for the main excitatory (glutamate) or inhibitory (GABA) neurotransmitters or ion channels within the mammalian CNS.
  Ion channel gating kinetics and structure implication for drug delivery
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr Z Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
Ion channels are proteins which sit in the membrane of every cell in the body and control the flow of positively charged ions such as sodium and potassium into and out of the cell.
  Development and characterisation of synthetic ion channel binding proteins.
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr D Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round
We are developing methods to identify novel proteins, Affimers, that recognise extracellular domains of ion channels. These have applications in various aspects of biology, from tools to visualise the location and distribution of ion channels in native tissue, to novel modulators of ion channel function.
