  Functional coronary artery disease genetics - Defining the function of new causal atherosclerosis genes from CAD GWAS loci using in vitro and in vivo models
  Dr G Douglas, Prof K Channon
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Targeting ERK5 to enhance the DNA damage response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
  Dr K Finegan, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ERK5 is a signalling protein that enables cells to transduce extracellular signals into responses. It is expressed in all tissues and is up-regulated in tumours.
  MSc by Research Programme: Assessment of plated cryopreserved hepatocytes as a tool to accurately determine the intrinsic clearance of low metabolism compounds
  Dr K Read
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Meals for macrophages – investigating how macrophages engulf and process dying cells in vivo
  Dr I Evans, Dr P Elks, Dr S Johnston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical role for phagocytic cells such as macrophages is the engulfment and subsequent degradation of dying cells and debris. Failure to clear targets such as apoptotic cells can lead to damaging autoimmune conditions and immune cell dysfunction (Morioka et al., 2019; Roddie et al., 2019).
  Evaluation of ex vivo screening methodology
  Dr S Danson, Prof T Helleday
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer affects over 14M individuals worldwide each year and in the UK only 50% of patients have a 10 year survival following cancer diagnosis.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Therapeutic targeting of chemokines in inflammation
  Prof S Bhattacharya
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation, driven by leucocytes, adversely affects organ function in diseases such as myocarditis, myocardial infarction, acute lung injury, sepsis and pancreatitis,.
  “Smart” scaffolds for preventing post-surgery infections and evaluation in a simulated in vivo microenvironment
  Dr A Anastasiou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with bacterial colonisation around implants and scaffolds is a significant clinical problem both in orthopaedics and regenerative dentistry.
  MSc by Research Programme: Development of tools suited for the in vivo identification and study of protein Complexes in Phytophthora capsici, required for infection.
  Dr E Huitema
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
