  Understanding signalling by a novel hormone receptor in the brain
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
Our laboratory is interested in how hormones, in particular oestrogen, signal and how this signal drives social behaviours in animals.
  Cleavage of receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases: mechanisms and consequences
  Dr D Cunningham, Dr M Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project aims to establish a new paradigm in cell signalling by showing how cell surface-anchored phosphatases can be converted into distinct cytoplasmic phosphatases by a cleavage event, thus effectively doubling a cell’s phosphatase repertoire.
  Understanding the role of the novel apelin receptor ligand apela in the regulation of neuroendocrine function.
  Dr A O'Carroll
Applications accepted all year round
The apelin receptor APJ (1) was first identified as an orphan GPCR, with closest identity to the angiotensin II receptor, type AT1a.
  Understanding the role of the novel apelin receptor ligand Apela in the regulation of neuroendocrine function.
  Dr A O'Carroll, Dr S J Lolait
Applications accepted all year round
The apelin receptor APJ (1) was first identified as an orphan GPCR, with closest identity to the angiotensin II receptor, type AT1a.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genome-wide, gene-specific patterns of glucocorticoid-receptor co-regulators critical for growth and skeletal development
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof C Farquharson, Prof T Freeman, Prof S Faisal Ahmed, Prof L Savendahl
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Glucocorticoids (GCs) are a class of steroid hormones that bind and activate the intra-cellular GC receptor (GR), and regulate transcription of many genes that govern the effects of GCs.
  Functional Selectivity and the Regulation of Receptor-Activated Signaling Pathways
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round
The molecular mechanisms that regulate receptors and receptor-activated signaling pathways in the cardiovascular and nervous systems are complex.
  Plant genetics and molecular biology - dissecting the role of receptor-like kinases
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
  Involvement of P2X7 receptors in cancer
  Dr E Polycarpou
Applications accepted all year round
The P2X receptors are a family of ligand-gated receptor channels activated by ATP and other extracellular nucleotides. A member of this family, the P2X7 purinergic receptor has been shown to play a crucial role in various physiological and pathophysiological processes.
