  Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton has a strong reputation in research, enterprise and education, with an emphasis on translating new discoveries from basic science into clinical innovation.
  Mitochondrial calcium in neurodegeneration (PhD in Biological Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit)
  Dr A J Whitworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial calcium plays a key role in a wide array of cellular homeostatic processes as diverse as bioenergetics and cell death, and has been linked to disease conditions as varied as cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury and neurodegeneration (1-3).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Towards specialised treatments for childhood-onset neurological diseases
  Dr C Schneider, Prof R Horvath
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegeneration is a feature of many debilitating, incurable diseases with underlying defects in RNA metabolism (e.g. spinal muscular atrophy, ALS), but the link between RNA biology and neuronal death is poorly understood.
  The Role of Molecular Regulators in Breast Cancer development using 3D models
  Dr M Ahmed, Dr A Coutts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer represents a major health burden, with it being the second leading cause of cancer related death in women worldwide.
  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  Breast Cancer Omics and Modelling
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof R Breitling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Breast cancer is the major cause of death among women and 90% of deaths are caused by incurable metastasis.
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Dr B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Developing new antimicrobials
  Dr T Narancic
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance is documented by the World Health Organisation as one of the three most important threats to human health.
