  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr F Rivero
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a growing global healthcare problem. Clinical findings suggest that more than 70% of patients with T2DM will die of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) including heart attack and stroke.
  Identification of novel glucose-dependent alterations responsible for vascular dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr R Sturmey
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a growing global healthcare problem. The majority of people living with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), characterised by a resistance of the body to the action of insulin.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  Precision-cut lung slices to investigate the effect of human rhinovirus on cough and airway inflammation
  Dr L Sadofsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human Rhinovirus (RV) is the major cause of the common cold. There are no current treatments or vaccines for the virus other than over the counter preparations to alleviate symptoms.
  Re-purposing diabetes medicines to manage bleeding complications in myeloproliferative neoplasms.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr D Allsup
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of three related blood cancers in which the bone marrow overproduces one of the three cellular components of blood (erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets).

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular concentration of a drug is an important determinant of its efficacy, toxicity, and potential drug-drug interactions [1].
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Applying human drug discovery approaches to kauri die back disease
  Prof M Glass
