  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.
  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 how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses
  Dr R Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disease (Dr. Raymond CC Chang’s Lab. Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Neurodeglab) is looking for a pro-active PhD student with first class honor or equivalent.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Prof B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 nuclear imaging techniques to enhance understanding of dementia
  Dr K Sander
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

UCL Chemistry Department is offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in 14 September 2020. Project summary.
  Investigating glial cell dysfunction in neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr G Sheridan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses.
