  Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN, Early Stage Researcher (iPLACENTA, ESR11): “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models”
  Prof A Ahmed
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Aston Medical School is looking for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to work on the project “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models (ESR11)” as part of iPLACENTA network collaborating with 14 other ESRs based in 11 European academic, industrial and clinical institutes.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Blood flow and solute transport in human placental vascular networks: an in silico approach to characterizing pregnancy pathologies
  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
  Dr M Bernabeu, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The human placenta performs diverse functions later taken on by several different organs. In particular, it mediates the exchange of vital solutes, including respiratory gases and nutrients, between the mother and the developing fetus.
  Effective models for function-structure relationship in complex biological media
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round
A complex multiscale relationship between the structure and function is common in many human organs (such as the lung, liver and placenta), and many diseases are associated with an imbalance in the relationship.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Investigating the role of oxidative stress and anti-angiogenic factors in preeclampsia utilising physiological and 3D-cell models.
  Prof C Murdoch, Dr C Henderson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Preeclampsia occurs in 3-8% of all pregnancies causing rapid hypertension and kidney dysfunction in pregnant woman which is difficult to predict and untreatable.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  Mechanisms behind fetal vascular dysfunction in diabetic pregnancies
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round
The central research focus of our group is to understand the mechanisms regulating two key functions of human blood vessels. permeability and angiogenesis.
  MicroRNA evolution in placental mammals: Unravelling conservation and divergence in their regulatory mechanisms in early pregnancy in different placental mammals.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr N Forde, Dr M. O'Connell, Prof K.A. Forbes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project brings together, in a novel manner, the research areas of placental and uterine biology, computational molecular evolutionary biology, as well as microRNA regulation to understand how miRNAs may have contributed to the emergence of placental mammals.
  Using our expertise to develop future scientists - BHF Four Year Programme
Our Programme. Soon 1 in 10 UK adults will have diabetes. In spite of modern treatments, most of these people will suffer major cardiovascular problems, including heart attack and stroke impairing their quality of life and survival.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on cognitive development
  Dr N Ashton, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Many pregnant Muslim women take part in the daily fast during the month of Ramadan, even though they are exempt. The long term effects on the child are not fully known; however an association between exposure to fasting in utero and an increased incidence of mental impairment in children has been shown.
