  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  Targeting lipid metabolism in pancreatic cancer
  Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancer is associated with poor prognosis and substantial rates of mortality. The need for new treatment options is therefore of utmost importance.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  TRIB3 at the interface of metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue
  Dr H Wilson, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity drives chronic inflammation and immune activation. This results in dysregulated metabolism, insulin resistance linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  Boosting metabolism to overcome liver disease
  Assoc Prof K Hoehn, Assoc Prof A Zekry
Application Deadline: 12 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

UNSW is now accepting expression of interest for the next round of Scientia PhD Scholarships, including our project. Boosting metabolism to overcome liver disease.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Imaging tumour metabolism with 23Na MRI and 82Rb Positron Emission Tomography
  Dr T Eykyn, Dr R Southworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours generally display a preference for glycolysis over oxidative metabolism even in the presence of oxygen.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  Metabolism of vascular anomalies
  Mr M Potente
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Angiogenesis & Metabolism Laboratory at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research invites applications for an Early Stage Researcher/Ph.D.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  Defining diets to treat inborn errors of metabolism
  Dr T Johnson, Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
