  Epigenetic mechanisms in atrial fibrillation – the role of developmental regulators and chronic stress
  Dr D Villar Lozano, Prof A Tinker
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity for a PhD studentship within the supportive learning environment of the Blizard Institute and the wider Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD) at QMUL.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Genomic diversity and molecular basis of pathogenicity of novel oomycete pathogens
  Dr M Barkoulas, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oomycetes represent a diverse group of eukaryotic organisms that cause destructive disease in animals and plants. Plant infections are more widely known because they are associated with historical famines caused by shortage in the production of key food crops.
  Understanding disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr X Shu, Dr G Hunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19028. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a growing global health concern in the world.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Bloomsbury Colleges PhD: Veterinary paraclinical metagenomics to prevent bovine respiratory disease and antimicrobial use in calves
  Prof L Guardabassi, Dr R Stabler
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is a major cause for loss of productivity and one of the most common reasons for antimicrobial use in cattle farming worldwide [1].
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Exploration and treatment of sFlt-mediated cardiac dysfunction in animal model of preeclampsia (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our project “Exploration and treatment of sFlt-mediated cardiac dysfunction in animal model of preeclampsia” provides an exciting opportunity for a student interested in maternal and fetal health to learn and develop new techniques in two world leading centres that are focused on translating laboratory experiments into improvements in clinical care.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT Using Zebrafish to Study Heart Disease and Tissue Regeneration
  Dr R Richardson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. Our Main Interests and Skills. In vivo animal models. Live imaging and sophisticated microscopy. Inflammation.
  The Role of Microglia-released microRNA in the Pathology of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; motor neuron disease)
  Prof M Hafezparast
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by the Motor Neurone Disease Association to study the link between microglia-derived microRNA (miRNA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the leading form of motor neuron disease, but the exact mechanisms that underlie its pathology are not well understood.
  Development of an in vitro model to dissect the mechanism of fungal persistence in the cystic fibrosis lung
  Prof P Bowyer, Dr M Bromley, Dr S Gago
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetically inherited disease in Caucasian populations. This disease is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator gene (CFTR) which produces defective ion fluxes and calcium homeostasis in the epithelia.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
