Supervisory team. Dr Anna Migdalska-Richards, Institute of Clinical Biosciences, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
  (MRC DTP) Observation and Imagery of Action in Parkinson’s
  Dr E Poliakoff, Dr E Gowen, Dr P Warren
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative condition affecting around 1 in 500 people, with significant impact on movements, which are typically slower and smaller.
  Investigating the Immune Basis of Parkinson’s Disease (PhD only)
  Dr C Williams-Gray
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now well established that immune activation occurs in Parkinson’s disease, but whether it plays a critical role in disease onset and progression remains uncertain.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease
  Prof D Alessi
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is great need for improved understanding of the mechanisms underlying Parkinson’s disease, to help with the development of new drugs that slow or even halt progression of the disease.
  Dissecting the mechanisms underlying sleep disturbances in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
  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.
  Discovery of novel treatments for Parkinson’s disease
  Dr Y Mehellou, Dr E Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurological disease in the world. Current PD therapies and medical interventions are very limited and only address the symptoms of this disease highlighting the need for new and effective treatments.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Developing Drosophila as a model to study the molecular and behavioural changes underlying Parkinson’s disease
  Dr J Hodge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
