  Investigation into the biological effects of exercise training on muscle wasting in patients with lung disease (ref: SF18/APP/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Applications accepted all year round
Accentuated skeletal muscle loss in patients with non-communicable diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a strong independent predictor of hospitalisation and mortality.
  Characterisation of human lung tissue for mechanisms of fibrosis and evaluating novel treatments/fibrosis reversal strategies.
  Dr L Smyth
Applications accepted all year round
This project uses primary human lung tissue sourced via informed consent from patients receiving clinical care in the NHS for lung disease.
  Development of Gene Therapy and Gene Editing for Lung Disorders: the translation of new gene therapies to the clinic, including the development of new vectors, and evaluation in animal models of disease.
  Dr D Gill, Dr S Hyde
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
The Gene Medicine Research Group is based in the John Radcliffe Hospital and is focused on the development of new gene therapeutics for lung diesases.
  PhD Studentship in MosMed CDT: Development of MRI scan methods to image inhaled fluorocarbon gases as biomarkers of lung structure and function
  Dr P Thelwall
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for 4 years. Overview. Lung diseases are a leading cause of death, and new treatments are emerging.
  The role of Molecular Regulators in Lung Development
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round
We would like to investigate and understand the processes involved in Lung development, such as, cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis that are modulated/deregulated during development leading to the development of Lung disease and cancer.
  The role of modified microRNAs in fibrosis during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of multiple mRNAs posttranscriptionally (Brown & Goljanek-Whysall, Aging Res Rev 2015).
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round
Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Estrogenic profiling in lung in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension by Mass Spectrometry Imaging
  Prof R Andrew, Prof M MacLean
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a progressive and deadly disease leading to right heart failure, lacking effective treatment.
  A state-of-the-art effector trap to identify secreted effectors of tissue invasion in the major fungal pathogen of human lungs
  Prof E Bignell, Dr J Amich, Dr A Reid
Applications accepted all year round
The often-fatal fungal lung disease invasive aspergillosis (IA) has claimed more than 8 million human lives since its emergence ~ 40 years ago.
  Surfactant secretion in health and disease - investigating cellular mechanisms of surfactant secretion in lung alveoli and their disruption in pulmonary disease
  Dr P Miklavc
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to investigate cellular mechanisms of surfactant secretion in lung alveoli and their disruption in pulmonary disease.
