  Sunlight exposure and cutaneous production of vitamin D in Black African/Afro-Caribbean adults
  Dr M Farrar, Prof L Rhodes, Prof A Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main source of vitamin D is through skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and is associated with reduced incidence of several cancers and immune-mediated disorders.
  Oral vitamin D spray as a novel treatment for 22q11 deletion syndrome
  Dr A McNeill, Dr C Mazzà
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

22q11 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic disorder, affecting about 1/2500 people (as common as cystic fibrosis). It is due to a small missing piece of chromosome 22 on the long arm (q) at position 11.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Investigation of the capacity of a diet rich in lutein and zeaxanthin to increase macular pigment density, thereby potentially reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration by dietary means.
  Prof M Rayman, Prof J Woodside, Dr J Brown
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Research question. Can consuming a healthy plant food, rich in protective macular pigments, be a lifestyle strategy that has the potential to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?.
  Application of advanced analytical methods to study key aspects of health and disease
  Prof D Naughton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Considerable advances in the analytical capabilities of modern techniques afford a new horizon in the study of health and disease.
  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.
  Regulating biosynthesis of the pigments of life
  Dr A Hitchcock, Dr P Jackson, Prof C N Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tetrapyrroles are often referred to as the pigments of life as they are required for a number of vital cellular processes, including respiration (haems), photosynthesis (chlorophylls), amino acid biosynthesis (vitamin B12), sulphur and nitrogen assimilation (sirohaem) and methanogenesis (cofactor F430).
  Understanding differential responses to retinoid treatments in human health and disease: a precision medicine approach
  Prof R Watson, Dr A Langton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans retinoic acid (t-RA), are endogenous signalling molecules derived from vitamin A that influence a variety of cellular processes through mediation of transcription events in the cell nucleus.
  Tissue antigen and immune cell turnover in health and disease
  Dr R Busch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy immune system is in a state of restful homeostasis. Activation of the immune system, whether to fight infections or during immune-mediated diseases, involves substantial changes in the rates at which immune cells and proteins are produced and destroyed (turnover).
  Bacterial iron uptake pathways as targets for the development of novel antimicrobials
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is an ever increasing problem. Presently it is estimated to be responsible for 700,000 deaths p.a. and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 10 million by 2050.
