  Exercise, vitamin D and immune function: to explore the effects of exercise on vitamin D metabolism in humans
  Dr G Wallis, Prof M Hewison
Applications accepted all year round
Exercise is well known to be of benefit for health, including enhancing the immune system. How exercise works to enhance health is not completely known.
  Genetic Dark Matter? Functional characterization of a non-coding RNA regulation of microbial metabolism of climate active trace gases.
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr H Schaefer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Climate change meets microbiology. Unique opportunity to study a ‘junk’ RNA. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
  Using spectroscopy to define human formaldehyde metabolism
  Dr R Hopkinson, Prof P S Monks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Formaldehyde, the simplest aldehyde, is a highly reactive pollutant and human metabolite. While exposure to formaldehyde, e.g. from food, cosmetics and air pollution, has long been considered a human health risk, cellular formaldehyde has other ‘healthy’ functions, e.g.

  Targeting lipid metabolism in pancreatic cancer
  Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round
Pancreatic cancer is associated with poor prognosis and substantial rates of mortality. The need for new treatment options is therefore of utmost importance.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round
24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  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.
  How do circadian and behaviour-driven metabolite rhythms influence health and ageing in humans
  Prof W Dunn, Dr R Dallmann
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Introduction and project rationale. Endogenous circadian rhythms are key in many physiological and behavioural processes in humans and changes in rhythms or desynchronization processes (for example, in shift workers) have been linked with adverse outcomes related to health and ageing.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019
The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
