  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  Biomedical Research @ HKU Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Li Ka Sing Faculty of Medicine invites applications from high caliber students for research studies (for the degrees of Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy) in three rounds of admission exercises each year.
  Imaging the local accumulation and clearance of protein aggregates in the extracellular space of the brain in Alzheimer’s disease models.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Varela, Prof F Gunn-Moore
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small aggregates of misfolded proteins are thought to be the main cause for cellular death in a wide variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
  International PhD Programme in Molecular Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Vienna Biocenter (VBC) PhD Programme in Life Sciences has been running since 1993, providing students from all over the world with excellent training.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine.
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
