  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: 26 July 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.

  Dr D Hay, Prof P Saunders
Application Deadline: 8 April 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.

  Prof J Tomlinson, Prof L Hodson
Application Deadline: 26 July 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.
  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.
  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.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round
The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Graduate Research Assistant position - characterizing a new liver-specific rodent model of impaired cholesterol transport
  Prof M Sandey
Applications accepted all year round
The Department of Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate/Graduate Research Assistant to work on a research project to characterize a new liver-specific rodent model of impaired cholesterol transport.
  Trans-generational transmission of obesity and obesity-induced liver disease – a role for maternal microbiota and Toll-like receptors
  Dr J Oben, Dr P Taylor
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The United Kingdom adult population prevalence of obesity is 30% and with 30% of children - overweight or obese. Additionally, 26% of women of reproductive age are obese and one in five pregnant women is obese.
  Airway, Liver and Muscle Gene Transfer to Create Therapeutic Protein Factories: utilising experience of in vivo gene transfer and/or in vivo gene editing to understand and manipulate the factors required for effective expression and secretion of therapeutic proteins
  Dr S Hyde, Dr D Gill
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We are focusing on strategies to deliver therapeutics via in vivo delivery of gene transfer vectors to generate ectopic “protein factories” capable of secreting therapeutic proteins into both the lung lumen and the systemic circulation.
