  Characterisation of the neuronal receptor for soluble amyloid precursor protein: a route to new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof N Hooper, Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the commonest form of dementia for which currently there is no means of stopping or even slowing the disease.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
  Understanding how the bitter taste receptor, T2R38, regulates the intestinal epithelium - a study from microbiota to the intestinal epithelium
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr H Chichger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Mechanism of transmembrane receptor activation
  Dr M Hyvonen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD position, starting in October 2019, in the group Dr Marko Hyvonen at University of Cambridge (http://hyvonen.bioc.cam.ac.uk/) to study the mechanism of transmembrane signalling by TGFbeta family growth factors.
  Targeting the Gas6-TAM receptor signalling pathway in cancer
  Dr S Hafizi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded 3 year full-time PhD project, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Sassan Hafizi.
  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
