  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Making Induced Neural Stem Cells from People with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
  Dr S Pluchino, Dr A Nicaise
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple sclerosis (MS), an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system, afflicts an estimated 2-3 million people worldwide, most of whom will ultimately develop a progressive form of the disease with few therapeutic options.
  Sparing and repairing myelin to treat multiple sclerosis
  Dr K Young
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune and neurodegenerative disease that results in oligodendrocyte death and central nervous system (CNS) demyelination.
  New Dimensions in Cannabinoid Receptor 2 Therapeutic Development: Exploring Spatial and Temporal Signalling Bias
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Development and Application of Novel PET Markers of Neuroinflammation
  Dr F Aigbirhio
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s objective is to develop novel in vivo PET probes for application as sensitive markers of neuroinflammatory processes which are key components of several pathologies, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and dementias.
  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
