  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in human macrophages
  Dr G Rena, Prof C Lang
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  The cell-wide web coordinates neuronal stem cell specification and plasticity by directing calcium flux across cytoplasmic nanocourses
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells select specific functions by calcium signals, greatly delivered through the sarco/endoplasmic reticulum (S/ER), which runs contiguously from the outer nuclear membrane (ONM) to its plasma membrane (PM) junctions.
  Biochemical analysis of the interaction of pluripotency transcription factors with RNA polymerase enzymes
  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
  Prof I Chambers
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pluripotent stem cells possess the dual defining properties of self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation potential. To retain an effective differentiation capacity, self-renewal must occur at high efficiency.
  Catching BAM in the act: a strategy for novel antibiotics?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr D Brockwell, Prof S E Radford, Prof N A Ranson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram negative bacteria are important pathogens to both humans and livestock responsible for life-threatening opportunistic systemic hospital infections, respiratory and urinary tract infections and gastric ulcers.
  Chemical protein labeling approaches to study TRPC5 channel regulation in adipocytes.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr R.S. Bon, Prof A J Wilson, Dr P Sukumar
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein TRPC5 forms homo- and heterotetrameric cation channels that play key roles in cellular signalling and responses to chemical and physical environmental factors, and its implication in human disease (including anxiety disorders, kidney disease and obesity) has resulted in TRPC5 channels emerging as potential therapeutic targets.
  Computer simulations and fluorescence spectroscopy to study the dynamics of the plant protein Light Harvesting Complex II
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P.G. Adams, Dr A Kalli
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will provide insight into the biophysical basis of protein dynamics which are crucial for life but are poorly understood.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Screening of chemical libraries using iPS models for investigating the role of prion protein in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof B Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. AD has been identified as a protein misfolding disease (proteopathy). The disease is caused by accumulation of two major amyloids.
