  Phytopharmacology of Polar Auxin Transport
  Prof Richard Napier, Dr A Cameron, Dr M Wall
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polar transport of hormones lays down patterning in plants. Polar auxin transport is mediated by PIN proteins which are plasma membrane-bound transporters.
  Developing advanced fluorescence microscopy to study the cellular phase of Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  An integrated approach to understanding effects of Candida albicans on cerebral functions
  Dr M Hamann, Prof N Hartell
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is a common member of the human gut flora detected in the gastrointestinal tract and mouth in 40–60% of healthy adults.
  Cerebellar control of aggression
  Dr W NORTON, Dr J McDearmid
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our laboratory investigates the genes and neural circuits that control aggression, an adaptive behaviour that animals use to establish social hierarchies and fight for resources such as food or territory.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  P2X receptors in the peripheral nervous system: molecular pharmacology (FOUNTAINSU20SF)
  Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors are ligand-gated ion channels activated by extracellular adenosine 5’-triphosphate (ATP). In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), ATP is a neurotransmitter acting in both autonomic and sensory nerve control of body tissue function and homeostasis.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity.
