PhD in Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism

We offer multiple self funded PhD positions in Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism at the Academic Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (ADEM) based at Allam Diabetes Centre. Read more

Tumour microenvironment and metabolism

About us. The CRUK Beatson Institute where the lab is based is a world leading cancer research institute, situated in the vibrant city of Glasgow in Scotland and hosting approximately 60 postdoctoral researcher scientists at any one time. Read more

Multimodal imaging of brain metabolism in humans in vivo

The overall goal of this PhD thesis is the integration of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)1 with arterial spin labelling (ASL) perfusion MRI2 and quantitative BOLD MRI3 for a comprehensive assessment of oxygen metabolism in the healthy brain at baseline. Read more

Mechanistic computational modelling of human glioblastoma metabolism

Glioblastoma is the most common and the most lethal malignant brain tumor. In vitro cell culture of glioma cells is essential for the discovery and development of novel anticancer treatments. Read more

A role for cholesterol metabolism in neurodevelopmental disorder

Microdeletions and duplications of the chromosome 15q11.2 region have been identified as a high penetrant risk copy number variance (CNV) to autism and schizophrenia. CYFIP1 (Cytoplasmic FMR1-interacting protein 1) is generally believed to be the causal risk gene in this CNV. Read more

Metabolism, Stress and the Cell Cycle in Human Hair Follicle Growth and Inflammation

The human hair follicle is a highly proliferative tissue system with unique and complex energy needs to grow hair. This PhD project will examine the links between metabolism and proliferation in human hair follicles, including within epithelial stem and progenitor cell populations. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Cell/extracellular matrix interaction during cell cycle progression: a novel role in controlling nucleotide metabolism?

The deregulation of cell cycle progression is a common feature of cancer formation and progression. Cell/extracellular matrix (ECM) interaction is widely known to support the progression of the cells through the cell cycle. Read more

Precision Nutrition: Improving human health by monitoring physiology and metabolism

  Research Group: Centre for Nutrition, Exercise and Metabolism
Overview. This programme of doctoral training will explore the broad area of ‘personalised nutrition’ by integrating various physiological measurements. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more
