  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Understanding the role of TNFRSF11B polymorphisms in osteoprotegerin bioavailability and bone metabolism
  Dr A Daroszewska, Prof R van ‘t Hof
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on determining the effect of the polymorphisms of the TNFRSF11B gene, which encodes osteoprotegerin (OPG), on bone metabolism.
  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  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.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
  Gut on a Chip 4.0: next generation models to study gut-microbiome-metabolism interactions
  Prof G Frost
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funded by the CDT in Chemical Biology. Innovation in Life Sciences – 1+3 year PhD studentships - APPLY HERE. Supervisors. Prof Gary Frost.
