  Molecular and cell-biological mechanisms mediating establishment of neuron polarity during development
  Dr R Das, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cells undergoing neuronal differentiation in the embryonic spinal cord delaminate from the neuroepithelium, resulting in loss of apical cell polarity.
  Fly, mouse and computational modelling of the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on clock neuron excitabilit
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves amyloid-B and tau accumulation resulting in memory, sleep and circadian rhythm loss. How this occurs is unknown hampering the development of effective AD drugs.
  Endoplasmic Reticulum Transport and Morphoregulation in Neuron (Patho) Physiology
  Dr E Avezov
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is a multifunctional organelle, shaped as a contiguous network of membranous pipes extending throughout the cell periphery.
  Investigating the role of adenosine deaminase in motor neuron disease
  Dr S P Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In a recent study published in Brain (https://doi.org/10.1093/brain/awy353) and highlighted in a number of media articles (www.sheffield.ac.uk/news/nr/disrupted-pathway-motor-neurone-disease-1.830534) we have identified a novel disruption in an energy generating pathway in astrocytes (neuronal support cells) derived from motor neurone disease (MND) patients.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Mitochondrial calcium in neurodegeneration (PhD in Biological Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit)
  Dr A J Whitworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial calcium plays a key role in a wide array of cellular homeostatic processes as diverse as bioenergetics and cell death, and has been linked to disease conditions as varied as cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury and neurodegeneration (1-3).
  Developing a new learning algorithm for biologically inspired spiking neural networks
  Dr A Taherkhani, Prof TM McGinnity, Dr G Cosma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain’s processing ability to solve complex problems has inspired many researchers to investigate how the brain processes information, reasons and its learning mechanisms.
  Identifying circulating cell-free DNA epigenetic biomarkers for neurodegenerative disorders. PhD in Medical Studies (GW4 Biomed MRC DTP)
  Dr E Dempster
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Dr Emma Dempster, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter. Dr Liz Couthard, University of Bristol.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
