  Investigating modifiers transcripts in models of motor neuron disease
  Dr L Murray, Prof T Gillingwater
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The term ‘motor neuron disease’ refers to a group of disorders in which motor neurons are the primary target. The search for therapeutic agents to treat motor neuron disease often focuses on one subtype with a specific cause.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Investigating modifier transcripts in mouse models of motor neuron disease
  Dr L Murray, Dr E Hudlund
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The term “motor neuron disease” encompasses a spectrum of disorders in which motor neurons are the primary pathological target.
  Investigating the pathophysiology of Motor Neuron Disease (MND/ALS) using rodent and human iPSC-based models
  Prof G Miles, Prof S Chandran
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
There is growing evidence that early changes in neuronal function contribute to the pathogenesis of Motor Neuron Disease/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (MND/ALS).
  Molecular and cell-biological mechanisms mediating establishment of neuron polarity during development
  Dr R Das, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Cells undergoing neuronal differentiation in the embryonic spinal cord delaminate from the neuroepithelium, resulting in loss of apical cell polarity.
  Understanding neuron connectivity in health and disease
  Dr F Dajas-Bailador
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to think, move, or sense the environment depends on the correct formation and subtle changes of neuronal circuits and their billions of connections.
  Developing the next generation of therapies for the childhood motor neuron disease, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
  Research Group: The Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone disease
  Prof T Gillingwater, Prof S Parson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease caused by mutations in the SMN1 gene. Excitingly, SMA has recently moved into a therapeutic era, with an approved SMN genetargeted therapy (nusinersen/Spinraza™) that improves many aspects of disease, including motor function and survival.

  Excitatory interneuron defects in motor neurone disease
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Applications accepted all year round
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an untreatable disease that causes degeneration of motor neurons, typically resulting in death within 2-3 years of diagnosis.
  Modulatory functions of microglia on medium spiny neuron function and degeneration in stem cell models of Huntington’ Disease
  Prof N Allen, Prof A Rosser
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Studentship Summary. This studentship is part of a SCTN-Training network of 14 studentships, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018) under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network and Grant Agreement No.
  Neural circuitry underlying goal directed search behaviour in Drosophila larvae
  Dr C Larsen, Dr M Meyer
Applications accepted all year round
Animals including humans make choices continuously based in past experience, present sensory input and internal state. A major goal in neuroscience is to identify the neural circuits underlying goal directed choices and to elucidate the neural computation driving goal orientated behaviour.
