  Functional interactions between GPCRs in the renal microvasculature
  Dr S V Smirnov
Applications accepted all year round
Hypertension and diabetes resulting in diabetic nephropathy (DN) are amongst the leading causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease.
  Proteomic Markers of Chronic Renal Scarring
  Dr P Watson
Applications accepted all year round
All types of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progress to end stage renal failure through a common pathway of fibrosis and scarring. Subsequently 2 million patients worldwide require renal replacement therapy (RRT).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing non-invasive imaging strategies to investigate the effect of kidney disease on cardiovascular health and assess the ameliorative effect of a regenerative medicine therapy
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  Depression in renal dialysis patients: the role of inflammation.
  Prof K Bhui
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Applications are invited from graduates in biomedical or related sciences for a three year studentship which will commence in 2019 and will be based at the Centre for Psychiatry, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, at Queen Mary University of London.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Risk prediction for renal dysfunction in people with type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Centre for Global Health Research
  Prof J Price, Dr C Weir, Dr BC Conway
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background/Aims. We are currently reaching an epidemic of type 2 diabetes, with patients living longer and developing complications which affect longevity and quality of life.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Uromodulin in hypertension and renal dysfunction - causal inference, mechanistic and clinical translation studies for precision medicine
  Research Group: Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences
  Prof S Padmanabhan, Dr T Van Agtmael
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Prof Sandosh Padmanabhan. Dr Tom Van Agtmael. PhD project summary. Genome wide association identified a novel pathway for hypertension and renal function involving uromodulin.
  The mechanism and intervention of acute renal injury
  Dr B Yang, Prof N J Brunskill
Applications accepted all year round
The Kidney Lifestyle research team run a broad translational research into Acute kidney injury (AKI). This has high mortality with 13 million incidences globally contributing to 1.7 million deaths every year.
  Developing a computational tool to predict the optimal location for arterio-venous fistula (AVF) creation in end stage renal failure and haemodialysis patients
  Dr A Anssari-Benam, Dr A Bucchi, Dr A Charig
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and will be supervised by Dr Afshin Anssari-Benam, Dr Andrea Bucchi and Dr.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Virtual biopsy with the Eye – using machine learning to detect and trackchronic kidney disease
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr T MacGillivray, Dr N Dhaun, Prof B Dhillon
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Industrial Partner. Optos. Background. CKD affects 6-11% of the world’s population [1]. Hypertension is an independent risk factor for CKD progression and is a frequent finding in patients with CKD.
  Hyperpolarised carbon-13 MRI for metabolic imaging of patients renal cell carcinoma as a novel method to investigate tumour heterogeneity
  Dr F Gallagher
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Applications are invited for 3-4 year PhD studentship starting in October 2019 at the Department of Radiology, University of Cambridge, funded by CRUK.
