  Understanding cholera pandemics
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger, Dr P A Lund
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vibrio cholerae is the causative agent of Cholera. Millions of cases of the disease occur every year and these are responsible for $3.1 billion dollar financial losses.
  Why do some DNA sequences poison cells?
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life on our planet is permitted by an ancient set of instructions encoded by DNA. Consequently, the observation that a cell can be poisoned by its own DNA is completely counterintuitive.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Prof C Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  Alternative pre-mRNA splicing
  Prof C W J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The following is a general statement about ongoing research on alternative splicing in the Smith lab. Specific projects will be available in one or more of these areas.
  Calcium dynamics and signaling in Candida albicans during pathogenesis and drug resistance. MRC Centre for Medical Mycology, Biosciences – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Brand, Dr D Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Academic Supervisors. Dr Alex Brand, University of Exeter (email. [email protected]). Dr Duncan Wilson, University of Exeter (email.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
