  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  ChromDesign-ITN: Detection of abnormal chromatin interaction in patient fibroblasts (subproject ESR10); Hosting institution: Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Berlin, Germany
  Prof S Mundlos, Prof G Cavalli
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
"ChromDesign” is a European innovative and interdisciplinary Research and Training network, which aims to characterize the impact of the 3D chromatin organization on gene regulation during cellular differentiation and in several human disorders, and to train junior researchers in the biomedical field, either in academia or in the private sector.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Molecular pathology data science studies of breast cancer
  Dr J Figueroa, Dr A Sims, Assoc Prof N Tobin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Datasets linked to molecular phenotypes are desperately needed to provide academia and industry the real-world evidence needed for discovery, validation and implementation of new biomarkers for improved cancer outcomes.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Uncovering new signalling nodes in the interaction between wheat and the fungal pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola
  Dr A Sadanandom
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mycosphaerella graminicola is an economically important fungal pathogen of wheat leaves and the causal agent of Septoria tritici blotch disease (STB).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Genetic epilepsy: identifying mechanisms and potential drug treatments, from nematodes to humans
  Prof A Morgan, Prof A Trevelyan, Dr A Ilie
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder that has a major impact on patient mortality, morbidity and quality of life. Clinical management remains extremely problematic, held back both by diagnostic and treatment limitations.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Personalised mitochondrial health: a functional and multi-omic assessment to predict individual susceptibility to hepatotoxicity of antiepileptic drugs
  Dr A Chadwick, Dr A Alfirevic, Dr R Jenkins
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. The realisation that mitochondrial genetics are an important, and under-researched, factor in personalised medicine is growing.
  Bristol Wellcome Trust 4 Year Programme in Dynamic Molecular Cell Biology
 Why study dynamic molecular cell biology?. Human genomics is rapidly identifying gene mutations and perturbed levels of expression that cause disease.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round
This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Targeting TFEB to correct autophagy/lysosomal deficits in Parkinson’s disease
  Prof R Wade-Martins
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Commercial partner. Biogen, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder but disease-modifying therapies are still lacking.
