  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Genetic Epidemiology of Rheumatoid Arthritis in UK Biobank
  Research Group: Institute of Health and Wellbeing
  Dr D Lyall, Dr S Siebert
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Donald M Lyall. Dr Stefan Siebert. Dr Daniel F Mackay. PhD project summary. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and high circulating rheumatoid factor (RF) are associated with important comorbidities, like cardiometabolic conditions, cognitive impairment, and poorer sleep.
  Using statistical and functional analysis to investigate the contrasting disease specific roles of IL6R and the chr17q12 locus in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma
  Dr J Curtin, Prof A Simpson
Applications accepted all year round
The Arthritis Research UK and Respiratory Centres at the University of Manchester have extensive research programmes investigating the genetic components of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Integrating transcriptomic and metabolomic data from people with rheumatoid arthritis to predict clinical response to drug treatment
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Prof M Barrett, Prof I Mcinnes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Prof Michael Barrett. Prof Iain McInnes. Dr Mick Watson. Dr Simon Rogers. PhD project summary. Modern biology has implemented technologies which enable the generation of massive datasets, dissecting the molecular composition of living things.
  MRC-funded PhD in Precision Medicine 2018/2019
 . We are offering up to 32 PhD studentships in 2019/20 to high quality UK/EU applicants, providing full tuition fees and a stipend of at least £14,777 per year.
  Construction of multi layer gene regulatory networks to understand the human immune system.
  Dr C Wallace
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The genes that control how our bodies function do not operate in isolation but in cooperation with each other in complex networks.
  Regulating the inflammatory infiltrate in health and disease: Identification of new therapeutics
  Dr H McGettrick
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate of outstanding ability to join a developing and active research team at The University of Birmingham led by Dr Helen McGettrick www.birmingham.ac.uk/Helen-McGettrick.
  The role of cells in the persistence of inflammation
  Prof C Buckley
Applications accepted all year round
A characteristic feature of chronic inflammatory reactions is their persistence and predilection for certain sites. Our group investigates the role that tissue resident stromal cells (fibroblasts) play in determining both the switch to persistence as well as the site at which inflammation occurs.
  A potential role for Epithelial Mesenchymal Trans differentiation (EMT) in the Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Periodontitis is a ubiquitous chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the supporting structures of teeth; the most common form is chronic periodontitis which if untreated results in the breakdown of soft tissues and bone, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
