  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of advanced MRI methods for measurement of pulmonary structural and functional change associated with lung disease
  Dr P Thelwall, Prof A Blamire
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We are developing MRI-based methods to image lung ventilation and perfusion properties. These new methods provide quantitative measures of lung function in a non-invasive and radiation-free scan, and the overall goal of our research is to develop these technologies for use in clinical practice.
  Debugging Lung Disease: Applying mathematical modelling for a precision medicine approach to the Pulmonary Microbiome
  Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova,College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Boosting immunity in chronic lung disease and antimicrobial resistant infection via the IL-33-ST2 axis
  Dr S Johnston, Prof S Renshaw, Dr A Humbles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Macrophages are effector cells that directly kill microbes and regulatory cells that coordinate the wider immune response. Due to the complex nature of macrophage function, how their different roles are integrated during infection and inflammation is still poorly understood.
  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.
  Translational Lung Immunology: Studying the contribution of the immune system to lung injury, repair and fibrosis
  Dr L Ho, Dr L Denny
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
We work on the mechanisms of lung injury, repair and fibrosis, with a particular focus on how monocytes and macrophages influence these processes.
  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: 11 January 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.
  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.
