This PhD would be based within the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Maternal Health, within the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research at the University of Birmingham.
  Evaluating the effect of child and maternal care policies on health care use and health in Low income settings
  Dr Laura Anselmi, Dr Ralitza Dimova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improving child and maternal care and health has been a priority in low and middle countries for decades. Interventions have encompassed reorganization and financing of healthcare provision to increase service availability and have been evaluated in isolation to understand the impact on care use.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  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.
  (MRC DTP) Peri-conceptional stress signalling through O-GlcNAcylation: effects on the early maternal-embryonic interface
  Prof J Aplin, Prof D Brison, Dr Peter Ruane, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular stress during the peri-conceptional period, including that caused by assisted reproductive treatment (ART), can lead to early pregnancy loss, reduced gestation or birthweight and altered postnatal growth, with short- (neurodevelopmental delay) and long- (cardiovascular and metabolic disease)-term health consequences.
  Using Statistical Techniques in Genetic Epidemiology to Investigate the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD)
  Prof D Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a well-documented observational relationship between low birthweight infants and increased risk of disease in later life (e.g.

  Phenotyping placental disease in women with diabetes and chronic hypertension using transcriptomic analysis
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
