  UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme across 4 strategic themes

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme provides state-of-the-art PhD training across four strategic themes. Fundamental mechanisms of disease.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Can we improve patient outcomes by providing a more personalized approach to antiplatelet therapies?
  Dr S Mundell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Individual differences in emotion regulation
  Dr C Van Reekum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individuals vary greatly in how well they can regulate their emotions, and difficulties in emotion regulation have been linked to disorders such as depression.
  A personalised medicine approach to the treatment of low dose interleukin-2 in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: predicting patients’ response through blood transcriptomics
  Dr J Kirby, Dr D Wang
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The Horizon 2020 funded project, MIROCALS, is a clinical trial of low-dose interleukin-2 (IL-2) in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an adult onset neurodegenerative disorder.
  Enhance Your Academic Career at the Blizard Institute

The Blizard Institute (https://www.qmul.ac.uk/blizard/) is the largest institute of Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, part of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
  Molecular mechanisms of blood-brain barrier dysfunction and repair in epilepsy
  Dr C Ruedell Reschke, Prof D Henshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a common, chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. Current treatments fail at least one third of patients and we have no diseasemodifying therapies.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr A Kafkas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  The cognitive Neuroscience of Attention and Working Memory, and Causal Functional Connectivity.
  Dr E Feredoes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab uses cutting-edge combinations of neuroimaging and analytic techniques to investigate aspects of human cognition. Specifically, we’re interested in the following.
  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Replacing deficient microglia in the developing brain: using a zebrafish model of human leukodystrophy to test new therapies
  Dr N Hamilton, Dr A J Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNASET2-deficient leukodystrophy is a heritable white matter disorder affecting infants and characterised by severe psychomotor impairments.
  How our emotion affects cognition: From neuroscience, lifespan and psychendocrinological perspectives
  Dr M Sakaki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is no doubt that emotion and stress affect human cognitive processing, such as memory, attention and decision making. However, the exact effects of emotion on cognition are still unclear as emotion sometimes enhances cognitive processing but sometimes impairs cognitive processing.
  Neurological reserve as a pivotal mechanism for psychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof A Venneri, Dr M De Marco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may experience and show a whole range of clinical symptoms. Of these, psychiatric symptoms such as apathy, depression and anxiety play a major role in that they are highly debilitating for patients and carers.
