  4-year Doctoral Programme in Ion Channels and Membrane Transport in Health and Disease (OXION)

Funding Type

PhD Type

OXION is an Oxford-based consortium of world-leading scientists who have a general interest in the role of ion channels and membrane transport in health and disease.
  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.
  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.
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder driven by mutations in the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  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.
  EASTBIO - Defining lipidomic biomarkers of the interactions between Western diet and liver health using mass spectrometry imaging
  Prof R Andrew, Dr J Fallowfield, Prof S Webster
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lifestyle factors influence healthy ageing. Dietary choices modify susceptibility to many diseases. The low-fat Mediterranean diet is anti-oxidant and believed beneficial for health, whereas high-fat “Western diet” is associated with negative health outcomes.
