Background. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a fatal progressive disease. Median life expectancy in untreated PAH patients is 2.8 years.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Molecular simulation study of the Nrf2-Keap1 pathway, the master regulator of cellular redox homeostasis
  Dr A Pisliakov, Prof A Dinkova-Kostova
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

  Using genotype-to-phenotype analyses to identify the genetic determinants of gastroenteritis caused by the food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  *EASTBIO* Modelling telomere length dynamics in a multicellular organism.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr H Ferreira
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Health. Telomeres are protective structures that cap the ends of linear chromosomes. At their core, telomeres are formed from hundreds to thousands of repeats of a consensus telomeric DNA sequence.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
