We have 77 neurodegenerative PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Development of novel lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) for targeted gene delivery to cancer cells

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full-time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science and will be supervised by Dr Roja Hadianamrei and Dr Sassan Hafizi. Read more

Investigating the Roles for deSUMOylation Enzyme SENP3 in Autophagy Impaired by α-synuclein

Aggregation of α-synuclein protein in neuronal cells has been strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders (Synucleinopathies) including Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies. Read more

Self-Navigating Nanocarriers for Intracellular Protein Delivery

Protein-based therapeutics have shown remarkable success in modulating extracellular targets; however, effective intracellular delivery remains a key challenge in biotherapeutics. Read more

MScR: How does dopamine signalling shape behaviour?

“Shall I go and get something to eat?” At some point in the past few hours, this question may have crossed your mind. Our ability to move towards our goals, and the motivational decisions that regulate these movements, define almost every aspect of our lives. Read more

The cellular response to stress: roles in disease and ageing

All living organisms need to adapt to their environment in order to survive and reproduce. They are subjected to many stresses including altered oxygen levels, heat or cold, irradiation, infection and injury. Read more

Identification of phosphatases that inactivate the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor Ire1

A self-funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr. Martin Schröder in the Department of Biosciences at Durham University to study stress signalling mechanisms originating from the endoplasmic reticulum. Read more

Understanding the interaction and functional mechanism of mitochondrial MIA pathway

Mitochondria are vitally important organelles of living cells, which generate the primary energy for all biological activities. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to life threatening diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, and various neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Read more
