  Investigating the importance of lipid metabolism in liver cancer
  Research Group: Cellular Stress
  Prof D Carling
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity and its associated complications are an increasing global problem and are responsible for a huge burden of morbidity and mortality.
  Analysis of tissue remodelling and lipid metabolism in glioblastoma cancer stem cells using advanced chemically- and mechanically-sensitive optical microscopy
  Dr F Siebzehnrubl, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal adult brain cancer. High patient mortality is partly attributed to glioblastoma cancer stem cells causing recurrence of therapy-resistant tumours.
  Cascading effects of micro- and nano-plastics on lipid quality and transfer through freshwater planktonic ecosystems
  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 B Peck, Prof K Hodivala-Dilke
Application Deadline: 19 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple Negative Breast cancer (TNBC) is a tumour type of significant clinical unmet need due to the lack of actionable biomarkers and efficacious targeted therapies.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Elucidating the mechanisms of phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Prof T Hupp, Dr JA Alfaro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the success of immune checkpoint inhibitors in the clinic, most cancer patients do not respond, and even among responders therapeutic resistance is a problem.

  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
