  (MRC DTP) Placental vascular development in pregnancies complicated by diabetes
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone, Dr P Brownbill, Dr I Chernyaysky
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes (type 1 & 2) complicates 2-3% of pregnancies. Abnormal fetal growth is common in these pregnancies, manifest as both fetal overgrowth (macrosomia) and fetal growth restriction.
  Novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular smooth muscle cells
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A self-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of Bristol to study novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular disease.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Microbiota and vascular health (ROBINSONQ20DTP)
  Dr S Robinson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the formation of blood vessels from pre-existing vessels. Angiogenesis is essential for maintaining healthy physiological processes and for the revascularisation of tissues following an injury.
  (MRC DTP) Decoding the role of vascular smooth muscle cell heterogeneity in cardiovascular disease by single cell genomics
  Prof N Bobola, Prof N Hanley
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) are implicated in the pathogenesis of several types of vascular diseases, such as aneurysm, atherosclerosis, vascular calcification and congenital vascular disease.

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).
  Dietary bioactives modulate vascular function: a mechanistic investigation.
  Dr G Corona
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK, over three million people currently suffer from cardiovascular diseases and healthy foods rich in protective dietary factors are known to help slow vascular ageing and improve the quality of life.
  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.
