Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although human longevity has increased through improved nutrition, sanitation and healthcare in the last century, the full benefits of this increased lifespan can only be realised if there is a parallel increase in the health-span of an individual.

  Using the fly kidney to develop new treatments for genetic kidney diseases
  Prof A Ong, Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polycystic kidney disease is the most common hereditary cause of kidney failure in man. It comprises a spectrum of diseases of which Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common form in adults and Nephronophthisis (NPHP) the most common form in children.
  Asymmetric cell division as mechanism for generating cell diversity
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryonic development, a single fertilised egg ultimately generates every cell of an organism. To generate diverse types of cells, some cell divisions occur asymmetrically, resulting in daughter cells inheriting different proteins and organelles.

  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr J Gutierrez-Marcos
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent evidence suggests that environmental signals received by somatic tissues can influence the phenotype of subsequent generations by reprogramming the germline.
