  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
  Ameliorating ageing and age-related diseases by targeting senescent cells
  Dr S Macip, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of organs and thus lead to the normal phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases.
  Nuclear pores, heterochromatin organisation and cellular senescence
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof W Bickmore
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This is one of several projects available on an MRC funded 4-year multi-disciplinary PhD programme in Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease at the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round
Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  Transcriptional regulation of lysosomes in cell senescence and infection
  Prof D Bennett, Dr A Nohturfft
Application Deadline: 13 January 2019
PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Lysosomes are vital organelles. Besides removing cellular waste, processing nutrients and destroying pathogens, they serve as hubs for signalling pathways.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD Studentship: Evolution and genomics of mortality and senescence in tetrapods
  Dr A Urrutia
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Evolution of asynchronous senescence in natural populations
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr J Moorad, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Senescence, or ageing, appears to be universal across nearly all known forms of life. Whilst it is most dramatically manifested as an increase in mortality risk with advancing age, it is also exhibited in many and diverse traits affecting reproduction, behaviour, and physiology.
  Targeting senescence to ameliorate ageing and treat cancer and other diseases
  Dr S Macip
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing is a biological process that affects all living creatures. Despite the scientific advances of the past decades, the mechanisms that lead to ageing in humans are not fully understood.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating wheat grain nutrient content and yield.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Wheat is one of the world’s most important crops providing over 20 % of calories eaten by humankind.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Connecting Molecular Profiles to Phenotype: A Proteomic Resource for Assigning Cell Cycle and Senescent States
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr T Ly, Dr A Lindqvist
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Cellular heterogeneity is frequently found in solid tumours and is thought to contribute to resistance to cancer therapy.
