microglia PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 14 microglia PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

MSc by Research: Nutrient-dependent regulation of microglia function and immune responses

Microglia are constantly sensing the brain environment for metabolic changes, damage and pathogenic invasion. Microglia are highly metabolically active, with activation in response to inflammatory stimulation increasing glycolytic demand. Read more

The impact of microglia on dopaminergic synapses in Parkinson’s disease

Applications are invited for a 3.5-year funded PhD studentship in the group of Dr Anna Mallach in the Department of Brain Sciences, commencing during 2024/25 for a project to study. Read more

Metabolic Control of Microglia in MS-Associated Cognitive Decline

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a devastating neurological condition affecting millions worldwide. Cognitive impairment significantly impacts the quality of life of people with MS and is often irreversible. Read more

Metabolic modulation of microglial homeostasis and immune response

Microglia are a specialised immune cell found in the central nervous system. They are responsible for maintaining brain homeostasis and play an important role in the early onset and development of neuroinflammatory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Read more

Cancer Neuroscience: Investigating the impact of non-CNS tumours on neuronal plasticity in the brain

To apply, please contact Dr Graham Sheridan at Graham.Sheridan@nottingham.ac.uk. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, resulting in approximately 18 million new cases and 10 million deaths each year. Read more

MScR - Early-life stress, susceptibility to mental health disorders and glia: central immune response in a rat model of pre-term birth

Depression and anxiety are the most prevalent mental health disorders affecting 1 in 4 people in the UK. Depression is the second most common cause of disability and together with other mental health disorders costs the UK economy an estimated £105 billion per year. Read more

Creating patient-specific retinal organoids from human induced pluripotent stem cells for in vitro simulation of uveitis

Uveitis, although uncommon, is a notable cause of visual impairment and blindness. Uveitis encompasses a range of conditions driven by both innate autoinflammatory and adaptive autoimmune CD4 T-cell responses. Read more
