  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.
  Understanding the role maternal environmental stressors play in endometrial cell signaling: consequences for food, fertility and health.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof J.E. Ladbury, Dr N Forde
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Correct and appropriate function of the uterine endometrium is essential for early pregnancy success in mammalian species and dysregulation of signaling in this tissue leads to pregnancy loss and disease progression.
  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

  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type
