  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors
  Dr L Lander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  Low density lipoprotein oxidation and atherosclerosis
  Dr D S Leake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The research in Dr David Leake’s group is concerned with atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of. coronary heart disease and strokes.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
