  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Estrogenic profiling in lung in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension by Mass Spectrometry Imaging
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Prof R Andrew, Prof M MacLean
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a progressive and deadly disease leading to right heart failure, lacking effective treatment.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing novel therapies for babies born with univentricular hearts
  Prof H Arthur, Dr A Lawrie
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Outstanding graduate scientists are invited to apply for a PhD Studentship to study the molecular mechanisms that cause detrimental pulmonary vascular remodelling in babies born with univentricular hearts, and to develop treatments that will prevent this problem and protect the infant lungs through childhood.
  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.
  Fabrication of novel hybrid nano-carriers for pulmonary drug delivery
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round
Pulmonary drug delivery is a non-invasive route for drug delivery where the lungs provide a thin, yet extremely efficient absorptive mucosal membrane with a good blood supply.
  Wood burning in the West Midlands: impact on air quality and health
  Dr Z Shi, Prof R Harrison, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that air pollution is associated with 7 million premature deaths per year globally. In the UK, air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths (Royal College of Physicians, 2016) and costs the economy £20 bn per year.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Role of primary cilium in morphogen signalling modulation by Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta) and its involvement in tissue fibrosis and aberrant wound healing
  Dr F Del Galdo, Dr N.A. Riobo-Del Galdo
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We offer an exciting opportunity to investigate the molecular basis underlying tissue fibrosis, at the epigenetic, molecular and cellular level.
  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).
  Experimental evolution of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in media replicating the conditions of the upper and lower airways
  Dr D Neill, Dr J Fothergill
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) is an important bacterial pathogen in people with cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung conditions. During early infection, Pa adapts to the environment of the respiratory tract, leading to long-lasting, difficult to treat infections.
  Expression and purification of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator and development of a high throughput screen for drug discovery
  Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round
The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator protein (CFTR) is a chloride channel than plays an important role in epithelial cells.
