  RNAi workflows for crop protection by silencing virulence genes of fungi and oomycetes with antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs): Chemical modifications and conjugation to nanoparticles for enhancing ASOs silencing potential and delivery
  Dr L Bindschedler
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Major losses in crop production are caused by fungi and oomycetes. Traditional disease control involves either fungicide applications or via breeding of new plant varieties introgressed with resistance genes, or insertion of these genes in transgenic plants.
  RVC PhD: Rebalancing mitochondrial metabolism in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy - a novel therapeutic avenue?
  Dr C Thornton, Prof D Wells
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a fatal X-linked muscle wasting disease caused by mutations in the DMD gene that lead to the loss of a functional version of the subsarcolemmal protein dystrophin.
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  QUADRAT DTP: Temperature regulation of crop - rhizosphere ecology
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions and community structure through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Temperature regulation of microRNAs and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Plants manipulate the rhizosphere (soil surrounding the plant root) through the release of water-soluble and volatile organic compounds known collectively as root exudate.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the role of RNA binding proteins in the regulation of NF-kappa B dynamics, inflammation and cell death
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Muldoon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-kB is a key signalling system that controls inflammation and cell fate, dysregulation of which can lead to inflammatory disease or cancer.
  MSc by Research Programme: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley
  Dr C Halpin
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

  MSc by Research Programme: Regulation of Ideal Plant Architecture in Barley
  Dr S McKim
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  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.
  Optogenetic programming of inflammation - in vivo Opto-GPCR approaches in neutrophils.
  Prof S Renshaw, Prof A Condliffe
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

White blood cells called neutrophils have a powerful protective role and without them we develop overwhelming infection, yet they are also directly responsible for the tissue damage that characterises many common inflammatory diseases.
  Mapping neuromodulator networks in real-time in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans
  Dr Y L Chew
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DEADLINE EXTENDED!. Background and Aims. Much of the efforts to identify neuronal connections and map the ‘connectome’ of the nervous system focuses on synaptic connections between neurons.
