  Investigating the role of adenosine deaminase in motor neuron disease
  Dr S P Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a recent study published in Brain (https://doi.org/10.1093/brain/awy353) and highlighted in a number of media articles (www.sheffield.ac.uk/news/nr/disrupted-pathway-motor-neurone-disease-1.830534) we have identified a novel disruption in an energy generating pathway in astrocytes (neuronal support cells) derived from motor neurone disease (MND) patients.
  Mitochondrial calcium in neurodegeneration (PhD in Biological Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit)
  Dr A J Whitworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial calcium plays a key role in a wide array of cellular homeostatic processes as diverse as bioenergetics and cell death, and has been linked to disease conditions as varied as cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury and neurodegeneration (1-3).
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions

  Neuromuscular junction development and disease
  Dr C Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are specialized cell membrane domains that facilitate neuronal communication in the intricate nervous system. These synaptic specializations develop in response to molecular interactions between pre- and postsynaptic cells.
