  Synthesis and study of metal chelators against neurodegenerative diseases and cancer (ref:SF18/APP/Tetard)
  Dr D Tetard
Applications accepted all year round
Because of the involvement of metal in numerous biological processes, in particular in oxidative stress and enzymatic action, the study of metal chelators as potential therapeutic agents has been growing.
  Mitochondrial toxicity in Drosophila models of neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr L Miguel Martins
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The MRC Toxicology Unit is a leading international research institute within the School of Biological Sciences in the University of Cambridge.
  A chemical sensor to detect active metabolites linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr A Hudson, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 25 April 2019
Kynurenine is an intermediate in the pathway that converts the amino acid, tryptophan, to the redox enzyme, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+/NADH) - an essential molecule of life.
  Protein quality control and neurodegenerative disease - to test the hypothesis that BAG6 contributes to the quality control of a range of disease-linked proteins in the cytosol
  Dr L Swanton, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round
Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, which if allowed to accumulate can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death [1].
  The ubiquitin proteasome system and neurodegenerative disease
  Dr L Bedford
Applications accepted all year round
The mechanisms that cause neurones to die in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases remain unclear.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round
This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  Understanding α-synuclein Pathogenesis through Interrogation of the Rostral-Caudal Gradient in Lewy Body Dementias (RDS19-SSEB)
  Dr A Khundakar
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
As part of ongoing investment into areas of research strength, Teesside University is pleased to offer a number of fully-funded PhD studentships to exceptional doctoral candidates to commence in October 2019.
  The impact of protein ubiquitination on ageing and ageing-associated diseases
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round
"Ageing is characterized by a general functional decline of cells, tissues and organs with increased risk of disease, such as neurodegenerative disorders.
  Deciphering Roles of SUMOylation in mini-Human Brains in Health and Disease
  Dr C Guo, Dr S Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Neurodegenerative disorders and cerebral ischemia are incurable conditions, imposing tough medical challenges and a substantial economic burden on health services.
  Highly multiplexed label-free detection of soluble proteins and miRNA in biofluids
  Dr J Edel
Applications accepted all year round
Funded by the CDT in Chemical Biology. Innovation in Life Sciences – 1+3 year PhD studentships. This studentship in the ICB CDT is co-funded with Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
