  EASTBIO: The role of mannose exposure as a mechanism of ageing exploited by Plasmodium falciparum.
  Prof M A Vickers, Dr A Rowe, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Mark Vickers (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/m.a.vickers. Professor Alexandra Rowe (University of Edinburgh).
  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.
  Breast Cancer Associated Microcalcifications – Investigation of their Relationship with Tumour Molecular Subtype and Potential Consequences for Tumour Progression
  Dr M Morgan, Prof L Young
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiographic mammary microcalcifications constitute one of the most important diagnostic markers of both benign and malignant lesions of the breast.
  Investigating novel metabolites on the regulation of microRNAs for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
  Dr C McCoy, Dr L O'Neill
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of metabolites has yielded new insights into the mechanisms that mediate immune cell function. Recent advances have highlighted that in addition to regulating energy states in a cell, metabolites can have a major impact on immune cells such as macrophages.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  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
Applications accepted all year round

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.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.

  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
