  Obesity, metabolic health and prostate cancer: using abdominal and pelvic imaging to characterize obesity and adipose tissue distribution
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr E Allott, Dr S Jain, Dr G Prue
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
There are currently no well-established modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer. Some evidence suggests that obesity is linked to more aggressive prostate cancer and worse outcomes, but studies are inconsistent and mechanisms are not understood.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round
Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Targeting cardiac mitochondrial dynamics as a therapeutic strategy in obesity and diabetes
  Dr A Kitmitto, Dr E Cartwright
Applications accepted all year round
Obesity is reaching pandemic proportions affecting over 650 million adults (WHO, 2017) and as such represents a global healthcare and economic burden.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the interface between obesity and severe mental illness: a genomics approach
  Research Group: Institute of Health and Wellbeing
  Dr R Strawbridge, Dr I Dahlman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Rona Strawbridge. Ingrid Dahlman. PhD project summary. People suffering from severe mental illnesses (such as depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) have a substantially increased risk of obesity.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round
The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Weight-management: Understanding services, public needs and developing programmes for evaluation
  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
  Dr Laura McGowan, Prof J Woodside
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Increasing levels of obesity are a major public health concern. In the latest Health Survey for Northern Ireland data (November, 2018) 64% of adults were classified with overweight (37%) or with obesity (27%) that is, having a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 kg/m2 or 30 kg/m2 respectively.
  Deciphering the role of fat tissues in maintaining systemic glucose and energy metabolism
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
