  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).
  Novel biomarker discovery in heart failure: A metabolomics and systems biology approach
  Prof D Kell, Prof GYH Lip
Application Deadline: 17 May 2019
Health failure is a highly prevalent condition, and a major cause of death and hospitalisation. Heart failure results in major healthcare costs, and much focus has been directed towards earlier diagnosis and detection, so that established treatments can be introduced.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  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.
  Academic Endocrine Unit: investigating the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
  Prof R Thakker, Dr K Lines, Dr M Stevenson, Dr K Kooblall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Dr Asha Bayliss. The Academic Endocrine Unit investigates the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
  Understanding the epidemiology and characteristics of Chronic Pain in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease
  Dr S Bell, Prof L Colvin
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
Chronic pain is more prevalent in patients with CKD compared with the general population. However, most of the evidence is limited to patients with end stage renal disease receiving haemodialysis with over 60% affected by moderate to severe pain.
  Pre-clinical testing of new therapeutic treatments for cystic kidney disease
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
The primary cilium on the ventral surface of most vertebrate cells acts as an “antennae” that receives and transduces chemo- and mechanosensory signals.
  Developing a model of secondary IgA nephropathy
  Dr C Stover, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
Complement is a key humoral effector system when immune complexes are formed. On activation, split products are formed which attract inflammatory cells and enhance cellular responses.
  Ran GTPase as a potential novel therapeutic target in EMT transdifferentiation and breast cancer stem cell (BCSC) survival during metastatic development
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Prof R Morgan, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr M Isreb, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide. Accumulating evidence suggests that local disease recurrence and metastatic lesions, the major causes of patient mortality, are due to a subset of aggressive cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs).
