This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Mariia Yuneva’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Altered metabolism is one of the hallmarks of tumorigenesis (1).
  Palaeophysiology: metabolism and metabolic evolution of ammonites and belemnites
  Dr C Trueman, Prof R Twitchett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An animal’s metabolic rate (the sum total of chemical activity powering life) is one of the most powerful predictors of ecological performance, co-varying with life history traits such as growth rate, fecundity, activity levels and, in ectotherms, environmental thermal tolerance.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  (MRC DTP) Early detection of cancer using identification of volatile metabolites
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof P Townsend, Prof S Taylor
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a disease which more than a third of the world population will get in their life. Different types of cancers have different prevalence and mortality rates, and it has been shown that advances in screening and diagnostic tools reduce mortality.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Investigating the role of membrane transporters in early development
  Research Group: Chromatin & Development
  Dr M Percharde, Dr L Fets
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project between the Chromatin and Development and the Drug Transport and Tumour Metabolism groups within the MRC LMS.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"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.
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
