  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.
  Impact of the immune landscape on androgen ablation therapy and progression to therapy-resistant disease
  Prof I McEwan, Prof H M Wilson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer related death. The androgen receptor is important for the development and function of the prostate gland and is a driver of prostate cancer progression and metastasis.
  (A*STAR) Regulatory pathways and skin barrier function
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr J Wong
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is vital for our health and in response to skin wounding, we have a well -orchestrated immune response that heals the breach.
  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.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  TRIB3 at the interface of metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue
  Dr H Wilson, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity drives chronic inflammation and immune activation. This results in dysregulated metabolism, insulin resistance linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
