  Regulation of intestinal immune responses to commensal bacteria by innate lymphoid cells
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract provide beneficial roles for the host, such as supporting nutrient metabolism.
  Investigating the effect of ‘vaping’ flavouring fluids on human lung cells and fresh water crustaceans
  Dr S Vass, Dr S Rueckert
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of electronic cigarettes or ‘vaping’ devices has dramatically increased in recent years. The number of users in the UK was estimated to be 3.2 million in 2018 (ASH, 2018).
  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Defining the role of NF-𝜅B during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr D Turner, Prof A McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are a useful system to probe early development. They can be maintained in a pluripotent state in culture, and differentiated using well-defined protocols to all tissue types of the embryo proper.
  Modelling the epigenome in oral dysplasia and early invasive carcinoma
  Prof K Hunter, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The key molecular events which lead to the development of premalignant oral lesions and their progression to oral cancer are still poorly understood.
