  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  ERK5 drives immune suppression in cancer
  Dr C Tournier, Dr K Finegan
Applications accepted all year round
The inflammatory microenvironment is arguably one of the most influential components of most, if not all, tumours (1).
  Deciphering the role of macrophage in retinal fibrosis secondary to neovascular age-related macular degeneration
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof H Xu, Dr M Chen, Prof D Fitzgerald
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) causes blindness and terribly affects the quality of life of those affected. Over 600,000 people in the UK and approximately 25 million worldwide have advanced AMD.
  Investigating nerve:immune cell cross talk during gut inflammation
  Dr J Pennock, Prof A MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The gut contains more nerves than any other part of the body outside the brain. These nerves contribute to pain responses and essential muscle movement, but their role during inflammation is not known.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Alzheimer’s disease: Understanding the interaction of microglia risk genes
  Prof P Taylor, Dr E Lloyd-Evans
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Microglia, the immune cells of the brain, may be protective in Alzheimer’s disease, encircling amyloid plaques, clearing debris and limiting further inflammatory damage.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Microglial NFAT signalling and Alzheimer’s disease genetic risk networks
  Dr M Hill
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified robust risk loci for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These findings serve as a starting point for novel biological investigation and treatment strategies.
  How do macrophages regulate TNF release to maintain a healthy inflammatory response? (TROEBERGU19MED)
  Dr L Troeberg, Dr J Gavrilovic
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Tight regulation of inflammation is critical for health, with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease and many others linked to dysregulated, chronic inflammation.
  Developing a model of secondary IgA nephropathy
  Dr C Stover, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
Complement is a key humoral effector system when immune complexes are formed. On activation, split products are formed which attract inflammatory cells and enhance cellular responses.
  The role of complement properdin in bone biology
  Dr C Stover, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
Bone mineral density is routinely measured in those at risk of developing osteoporosis and in those on various treatments, and informs the management of a growing proportion of the population.
