Showing 1 to 10 of 208
  Condition specific engineering of P. putida for rhamnolipid production
  Dr P Rahman, Dr S Robson, Dr C Angione
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019. The project will focus on. Incorporating non-native pathways and to implement innovative and computational-based metabolic design in Pseudomonas putida including oxidative catabolic pathways for lignin degradation.
  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  A novel arterial macrophage subset in atherosclerosis
  Prof C Monaco, Prof I Udalova, Prof A Handa
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/8. Obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes (T2D), and associated cardiovascular disease (CVD) often coexist clinically and constitute an epidemic global health problem.
  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: 11 January 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: 7 January 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.
  Changes in metabolic energy use with body sizes within pelagic invertebrate species: new insights from jellyfish
  Prof A Hirst, Dr D Atkinson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Gelatinous zooplankton (‘jellyfish’) have a body water content that is proportionately very high, a trait that has evolved in at least 5 planktonic phyla.
  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: 11 January 2019
Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
