  Characterising the human Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) synaptic proteome
  Dr C Henstridge, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is caused by the breakdown of upper and lower motor neurons leading to the progressive weakness and atrophy of muscle, often resulting in respiratory failure and death within a few years of diagnosis.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From single-molecule to synchrotron: New tools for investigating the molecular mechanisms of Aicardi-Goutières Syndrome and other aberrant DNA diseases
  Dr T Craggs, Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr R Rambo
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This studentship is focused on developing new biophysical tools to understand the molecular basis of aberrant DNA diseases.

  Propensity Score estimation and matching for multiple treatment comparisons in observational studies
  Prof S Walters, Dr R Jacques
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Gastrostomy feeding is commonly used to support patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis who develop severe dysphagia.
  The role of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) degeneration in age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and function
  Prof MJ Jackson, Prof A McArdle, Dr A Vasilaki
Applications accepted all year round
The NMJ (or motor endplate) is a highly specialised chemical synapse that transmits action potentials from motor neurons to muscle fibres.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
