MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding RNAs ~22nt in length known to play a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression in animals.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Genomic analysis of the impact of sexual recombination on the segregation of virulence genes in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr L Morrison, Dr A MacLeod, Dr J Prendergast
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Background. African trypanosomes are vector-borne protozoa that cause serious human and animal disease across sub-Saharan Africa.
  Precision Medicine DTP - 3D Modeling of Changes in Genome Architecture in Development and Disease
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof E Schirmer, Dr D Marenduzzo
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Defects in spatial genome organisation have recently been linked to human disease and the National Institutes of Health, USA director speculated that most as yet unidentified disease alleles will occur in non-coding genome regions.
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder driven by mutations in the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene.
  Engineering de novo microscopic ecologies to monitor and dissect disease spread
  Dr T Gorochowski, Dr S English
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

Understanding what regulates the spread of diseases in space and time is critical if we are to combat them effectively.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Replacing deficient microglia in the developing brain: using a zebrafish model of human leukodystrophy to test new therapies
  Dr N Hamilton, Dr A J Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNASET2-deficient leukodystrophy is a heritable white matter disorder affecting infants and characterised by severe psychomotor impairments.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional and structural analysis of RBBP5: a histone tail modifier essential for development, disease and healthy ageing
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks, Dr A J Whitmarsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome is the blueprint of any living system. However, it is the regulation of gene expression that enables life. For transcription to take place, the molecular machinery involved has to access genomic DNA.
