  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

I have had a longstanding focus on inherited heart muscle diseases, in particular hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a relatively common Mendelian condition which puts affected individuals at risk of sudden cardiac death.
  Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis
  Prof R K Grencis, Dr T Starborg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide.
  DEFINING AND EXPLOITING ENDOTHELIAL CELL HETEROGENEITY IN THE PULMONARY VASCULATURE IN MOUSE AND HUMAN
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Prof A Baker, Dr P Carmeliet
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Pulmonary hypertension is a rare but severe remodeling of the distal lung vasculature. The endothelium is very important in the early responses to pulmonary hypertension and the subsequent remodeling of blood vessels.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  The analysis of genetic and environmental contributions to the risk of congenital heart disease
