  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  Using zebrafish models to investigate cerebral arteriovenous malformations
  Dr P Kasher, Prof S Allan, Dr A Parry-Jones, Dr H Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations (cAVM) relate to a spectrum of conditions associated with blood vessel abnormalities of the brain [1].
  Single cell approaches to understanding gliomatosis cerebri
  Dr C Jones, Prof J Shipley
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gliomatosis cerebri (GC) is a rare brain tumour that mostly affects children and young adults. Unlike other brain tumours, little is known about this type of cancer, and survival is very poor, with most patients succumbing to their disease within 18 months of diagnosis.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  ERK5 MAPK signalling in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr J Muller, Dr S Kantamneni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases have devastating effects on individuals’ lives and our society, with no effective treatments available.
