neurodegeneration PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 33 neurodegeneration PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Investigating lysosomal (dys)function in ageing and neurodegeneration

Project Overview. Ageing is associated with a decline in the functions of an organism (López-Otín, C. et al. Cell, 2023) and correlates with an increased risk of developing diseases in the later life (Niccoli, T. Read more

Exosome biogenesis and organelle trafficking in neurodegeneration.

Scientific summary. Intracellular transport pathways are fundamental for cell structure and function. Due to their longevity, complex morphology (long axonal and dendritic extensions) and requirement to maintain synaptic transmission, neurons are heavily dependent upon intracellular transport. Read more

Applied optogenetics to study the influence of neuronal activity on neurodegeneration

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant and growing challenge to global health, affecting millions worldwide. Despite extensive research efforts, the underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration are not fully understood, and there is a critical lack of effective treatments. Read more

Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration

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. Read more

Investigating Lysosomal Dysfunction in Ageing and Neurodegeneration

Lysosomes are key cellular organelles that degrade and recycle macromolecules, act as signalling hubs and are implicated in many diseases including Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s dementia (AD) where old age is a major risk factor. Read more

Blood biomarkers of Small Vessel Disease related to cognitive impairment and neuroimaging findings

An opportunity has arisen for a 4-year PhD studentship within the Department of Brain Sciences at Imperial College London funded by the Multi-institutional VIDA (Vascular and Immune Contributions to DementiA) network. Read more

Investigating Gut-Immune Interactions in Parkinson’s Disease (PhD only)

It is now well established that both gastrointestinal dysfunction and immune activation occur in early Parkinson’s disease, and emerging evidence indicates that these processes are linked to faster disease progression. Read more

PhD positions on EBV infection and Multiple Sclerosis

These PhD positions, fully funded by the European Commission, provide exciting opportunities to pursue research at the interface of molecular virology, immunology and neurobiology. Read more

Normative modelling of resting-state EEG across the lifespan for application in the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease

With a rapidly aging human population worldwide, neurodegenerative diseases represent a pressing medical and societal concern. Given the increase in life expectancy, dementia is expected to affect almost 152 million people by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Disease International, 2018). Read more

Integrating AI to quantify pathogenic alterations to the Blood-Brain-Barrier in a human in vitro model

Summary. We are looking for a talented and motivated recent graduate in Biosciences, Biomedicine, Human Genetics or related discipline to engage in an exciting new project at Manchester Metropolitan University. Read more
