A self-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of Bristol to study novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular disease.
  Vascular-targeted gene therapy to block proliferation of smooth muscle cells using a novel adenovirus vector
  Prof A Baker, Dr D E Newby
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Many strategies have emerged to improve the function of the blood vessel wall following acute injury, including targeting endothelial cell function, vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration and adventitial progenitor cells.
  Understanding the functional and mechanical implications on the lower limb of partial foot amputation in people with vascular disease
  Prof a McGregor, Mr J Shalhoub
Application Deadline: 20 May 2019
Amputation due to both vascular disease and diabetes results from a combination of lack of sensory perception in the feet and a poor capacity for wounds to heal.
  Heme regulation of signalling at potassium channels in the cardiovascular system
  Dr N Storey, Dr N W Davies
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Ion channels in the smooth muscle of the cardiovascular system control blood pressure and cardiac contractility through changes in their membrane potential.
  Functional coronary artery disease genetics: investigating the role of the candidate gene in models of In vivo cardiovascular disease
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Despite significant advancements in its treatment coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in both the UK and world wide, accounting for over 66,000 deaths in the UK each year.

  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round
Vitamin D3 deficiency is a common public health problem worldwide that is increasingly believed to contribute not only to decreased bone mineralisation but potentially to other serious medical conditions.
  The effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA, “fish oils”), on vascular and potassium channel function
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round
There is a large body of evidence that consumption of oily fish or supplementation of fish oils leads to improvements in cardiovascular heath (as well as other health benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects).

  Vascular health in the obese heart: A mechanism for the ‘obesity paradox’ for cardiovascular disease
  Prof GYH Lip, Dr VS Sprung, Dr A Shantsila
Applications accepted all year round
An ‘obesity paradox’ is evident in relation to cardiovascular disease, where obese patients seem to have better cardiovascular outcomes [Stroke.
