  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Prof B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Investigating how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses
  Dr R Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disease (Dr. Raymond CC Chang’s Lab. Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Neurodeglab) is looking for a pro-active PhD student with first class honor or equivalent.
  Project title: Elucidating the mechanisms of pathology in neurodevelopmental white matter diseases
  Dr N Hamilton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research interest is to dissect the mechanism of auto-inflammatory neurological disorders using zebrafish as an animal model.
  Immunoproteasomes as novel therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Prof D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
