  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  Development of novel artificial intelligence algorithms for network wide metabolic flux analysis with stable isotope tracers
  Dr C Ludwig, Dr S He
Applications accepted all year round
The efficient function of the metabolic network in eukaryotic cells relies on its separation into a number of closely-linked but metabolically distinct compartments.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Engineering bacterial therapeutics with enhanced metabolic properties
  Dr G H Thomas, Dr J P J Chong, Dr D Heeg
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Our understanding of the human gut microbiome is increasing at a rapid pace, to the point where important metabolic interplay between components of the community are now understood.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
A universal characteristic of all cancer cells is the reprogramming of cell metabolism to provide the energy and building blocks necessary to support proliferation and survival.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Synthetic metabolic pathways and biosensor systems for production and detection of chemicals in Cupriavidus necator
  Dr N Malys, Prof N Minton
Applications accepted all year round
The production of chemicals from renewable sources is a key for a sustainable future. Various compounds can be produced by bacteria and yeast carrying synthetic metabolic pathways assembled of multiple genes derived from other organisms.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Understanding and Treating Metabolic Liver Disease: Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments
  Prof J Tomlinson, Prof L Hodson
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Understanding the causes of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to identify new biomarkers of disease stage as well as trial novel treatments.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
