  Investigation of the anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin in a mouse model of chronic neuroinflammation – a route for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease?
  Dr E Gyengesi, Prof GM Muench
Applications accepted all year round
This project will investigate the effect of chronic glial activation on brain structure and function, and test the efficacy of two cytokine-suppressive anti-inflammatory drugs (CSAIDs) against chronic glial activation and the resulting neuronal damage.
  PhD in Cancer Research - Targeting neuroinflammation in mTORC1-driven brain tumours
  Dr A Tee, Prof A Harwood
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project will not only create a new brain tumour model, but will also give us valuable information on mTOR’s involvement in the development of brain tumours.
  Role of vitamin D in neuroinflammation
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr D Sieger, Dr A Astier
Application Deadline: 7 February 2019
T cells play a central role in the inflammation occurring in multiple sclerosis (MS), and migration of activated T cells into the CNS is key to MS pathogenesis.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  Understanding Neuroinflammation through advanced in vitro 3D modelling using human Pluripotent Stem Cells
  Dr S Cowley, Prof W S James
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Microglia - brain-resident macrophages - carry out homeostatic surveillance functions in the brain, clearing dying cells, extracellular debris, and pruning synapses during development.
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Dr B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
  Using biomaterials and 3D bioprinting to model the neurovascular unit in dementia
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, cerebrovasculature and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Ghrelin-based therapies for ALS – understanding mechanisms of action
  Dr G H Doherty, Dr J Harvey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ghrelin is an endogenous growth hormone secretagogue and neuropeptide that enhances food intake and appetite, and which signals via the GHSR1 receptor.
