  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study the increasingly recognised association between metabolic disease and neurodegeneration using in vitro cell culture methods.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  Characterising human metalloproteome to disrupt metal toxicity induced neurodegeneration (Ref: SF20/APP/SOUNDARARAJAN)
  Dr M Soundararajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal accumulation and biometal dyshomeostasis in the nervous system leads to loss of neuronal function.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Immunoproteasomes as novel therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  Investigating Therapeutic Effect of Different Antioxidants in Friedreich’s Ataxia (FRDA)
  Dr S Anjomani-Virmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by epigenetic silencing of the frataxin gene. It is the most common inherited ataxia, affecting 1:50,000 Caucasians, and is characterised by neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus and skeletal deformities.
  Targeting the DNA damage response in spinal muscular atrophy.
  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
  Dr G Hunter, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference No. SHLS20040. Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a neuromuscular disease that is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality in humans and it is caused by mutations in a single gene known as survival motor neuron 1, SMN1, resulting in loss of the SMN protein.
