  Search for Doubly Charged Higgs Bosons Decaying to Like-Sign Pairs of Tau Leptons with the ATLAS Experiment at the CERN LHC
  Dr T Wyatt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in 2012 represents the culmination of a 50-year theoretical and experimental endeavour to complete the “Standard Model” of particle physics.
  Screening of chemical libraries using iPS models for investigating the role of prion protein in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof B Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Background. AD has been identified as a protein misfolding disease (proteopathy). The disease is caused by accumulation of two major amyloids.
  Investigating how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses

PhD Studentship in the interplay between ubiquitin-proteasome degradation system and amyloid proteins, Imperial College London. Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  How protective signals from the gut modify neuronal activity and behaviour, using C. elegans as a model system.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen
Applications accepted all year round

Amyloid protein misfolding leading to loss of neuronal function are fundamental pathogenic mechanisms of numerous age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD).
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
