  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.
  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: 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.
  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.
  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.
  Exploring the influence of treatment on CD4+ T-cell sub-populations in patients receiving biologic drugs for their inflammatory arthritis
  Prof A Barton, Dr D Plant, Dr S Viatte
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Tumour necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) therapy is ineffective for approximately 20% of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and there is currently no way to predict which patients will not benefit.
  The role of tissue damage-associated lipids in triggering pathogenic neutrophil responses in inflammatory diseases
  Prof I Udalova, Prof C Buckley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Neutrophils are well recognised for their ability to rapidly enter the site of tissue damage and microbial infection where they kill microorganisms by either ingesting them or releasing anti-microbial activities and facilitate wound repair.
  Is there a unique stool and blood inflammatory signature in Ankylosing Spondylitis?
  Prof P Bowness, Prof F Powrie
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is a common inflammatory rheumatic disease of unknown pathogenesis.
  Cardiovascular health in patients with inflammatory joint diseases: a genetic approach to understanding excess mortality
  Dr J Bowes, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Patients with chronic inflammatory joint diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) which is the major contributory factor to the observed early mortality in these patient groups.
