  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.

  Exploring Parkinson’s related gene function in hiPS-macrophages and microglia
  Prof W S James, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The macrophage is an evolutionarily ancient sentinel of the health of all of the body’s tissues. clearing away dead cells and debris; as brain-resident microglia, remodelling defunct neuronal connections; nurturing tissue stem cells; detecting and responding to pathogens.
  Chemically editable 3D tumour microenvironments to explore and exploit tumour immunity
  Dr O Pearce, Dr B Schumann
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Immunotherapy of cancers may offer progression free survival that is not seen with conventional chemotherapies. However, immunological barriers present within the tumour reduce response rates to therapy.
  (MRC DTP) Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding how macrophages respond to damage-derived inflammatory signals
  Dr G Lopez-Castejon, Dr C Francavilla, Prof P Woodman, Dr D Brough
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Innate immune recognition of danger signals is an important mechanism that protects against infection, and injury. ATP is released from infected or damaged cells and its extracellular presence alerts macrophages of impending danger.
