  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.
  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.
  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].
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Experimental Evolution of Endosymbiosis
  Dr H Hendrickson, Dr E Ostrowski
Applications accepted all year round
Complex eukaryotic life began when one free-living cell gave up independence and partnered with another. A major question in evolution concerns how such partnerships are able to form and stabilise.
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round
Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Promoter regulation heterogeneity and stratification of colorectal cancer organoids
  Prof F Mueller, Dr D J Stekel, Dr A Beggs
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Developing tumours are composed of a mixture of clonal subpopulations, containing distinct patterns of mutations leading to distinct transcriptome features.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The making of a Super Bug. Understanding the mechanisms of high level antibiotic resistance in Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  Prof S J Foster, Prof N Zenkin
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisor. Professor Simon Foster (University of Sheffield). Co-supervisor. Professor Nikolay Zenkin (University of Newcastle). Background Information.
