  Targeting miR-29 in cutaneous wounds
  Dr S Kurinna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of efficient strategies for the improvement of wound repair requires understanding of the mechanisms underlying normal and impaired healing.
  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple effectors of oncogenic RAS molecules
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. Importantly, about 20% of all human cancers harbour mutations in RAS genes (COSMIC).
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo tissue regeneration
  Dr D Ungar, Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
  Novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
  Prof S Winder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by mutations in the DMD gene leading to loss of the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  Understanding the impact of placental aging on placental function
  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prolonged pregnancy (>41 weeks gestation) is associated with an increase in perinatal mortality (the death of a baby before or shortly after birth) from a nadir of 1 per 1,000 births at 39 weeks’ to 3 per 1,000 births at 41 weeks which continues to rise beyond this time.
  The phenotypic and functional identification of angiogenic T-cells for potential use to treat cardiovascular disease Project ID SAS0043
  Dr M Ross, Dr G Wright
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. This project is based within the School of Applied Sciences at Edinburgh Napier University and is led by Dr.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Phytopharmacology of Polar Auxin Transport
  Prof Richard Napier, Dr A Cameron, Dr M Wall
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polar transport of hormones lays down patterning in plants. Polar auxin transport is mediated by PIN proteins which are plasma membrane-bound transporters.
  Understanding multi-component remedies from historical medical texts
  Dr E Connelly, Dr F Harrison
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for novel routes to drug discovery due to the significant increase in antibiotic-resistant microbes (AMR) and the lack of new drugs currently in development to treat antibiotic-resistant infections.
  Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) as a novel cancer biomarker and target for chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Coussons, Dr C Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Platform Technology to Enhance the Growth of Human Tissues In Vitro for Use in Biomedical Research and the Assessment of New Molecular Entities
  Prof S A Przyborski, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many molecules fail when tested in humans as activity data do not always extrapolate into man. Accordingly, there is demand to develop new biomedical in-vitro assays to test compounds in human tissues earlier in product development.
  Investigating anti-metastatic drugs in human melanoma cells
  Dr S Vass, Prof M Rae
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastasis is the term used to describe the movement of cancer cells from the primary site of disease to other areas of the body.
  Synthesis and Anti-Cancer Evaluation of New Heterocyclic Quinones
  Prof F Aldabbagh, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group has published on small molecules with specificity towards hypoxic cells associated with solid tumours, reductase enzymes over-expressed in cancer, as well as, aziridines that induce hypersensitivity from Fanconi anaemia cells and those carrying mutations in the BRCA (Breast Cancer Susceptibility) genes.
  Synthesis and identification of homoisoflavonoids and lignans for the treatment of wet active age-related macular degeneration based on their anti-vascular endothelial growth factor and anti-inflammatory activities
  Dr S Schwikkard, Dr E Opara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related macular degeneration is reported to be the most common cause of visual impairment, and its certification, in the developed world.
