  Male-driven sex allocation: adaptive adjustments in sperm sex ratios.
  Dr R Firman
Application Deadline: 22 March 2019
The ability of males to adjust offspring sex ratios has traditionally been dismissed on the assumption that their contribution is genetically determined during meiosis and therefore not under adaptive control.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round
It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Modelling Sex Dependent Differences in Human Liver Disease using Stem Cell Derived Models and Organ on a Chip Devices
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
  Dr D Hay, Prof P Saunders
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019

  The role of sex hormones and brain activity in risk-taking and antisocial behaviour in adolescence
