  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Defining Therapeutic Targets for Human Liver Fibrosis using Single-cell Transcriptomics
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr P Ramachandran, Prof N Henderson, Prof T Freeman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Chronic liver disease is estimated to affect 844 million people worldwide, with over 2 million deaths per year. Liver fibrosis (or scarring) is a feature of advanced chronic liver disease of any aetiology and predicts adverse patient outcomes.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Cognition and Development in Infants and Children with Chronic Liver Disease
  Dr J Day
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Supervisors. Dr Jemma Day, Dr Grainne McAlonan and Dr Jonathan Muircheartaig, Prof Anil Dhawan. Covert hepatic encephalopathy (CHE), a spectrum of neuropsychological problems of patients with chronic liver disease (CLD), is caused by an accumulation of toxic substances that are normally removed by the liver.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Modelling Sex Dependent Differences in Human Liver Disease using Stem Cell Derived Models and Organ on a Chip Devices
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
  Dr D Hay, Prof P Saunders
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, which include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
  Understanding and Treating Metabolic Liver Disease: Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments
  Prof J Tomlinson, Prof L Hodson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments.
  Using organoid models to better understand liver immunology
  Prof G Ahlenstiel, Dr S read
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are currently being accepted for a 3 year PhD project in the immunology of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) at Western Sydney University Blacktown and the Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
  Precision healthcare - A novel diagnostic platform to detect liver cancer biomarkers in urine
  Dr A Salehi Reyhani, Prof S Taylor-Robinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Hepatocellular carcinoma, or liver cancer, is the 6th most common cause of cancer but the 2nd biggest cancer-killer globally. In this highly multidisciplinary project, you will help develop new methods for the detection of liver cancer at the point-of-care based on our pioneering work in miniaturised diagnostics.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mechanisms of chronic liver disease associated with hepatitis C virus genotype 3 infection
  Prof M Harris, Dr F Oakley, Prof D Mann
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Mark Harris, Faculty of Biological Sciences, University of Leeds and Professor Fiona Oakley, Institute of Cellular Medicine, Newcastle University.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
