  Wellcome Trust Integrated Molecular, Cellular and Translational Biology PhD Training Programme

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Wellcome Trust Integrated molecular, cellular and translational biology programme combines scientific excellence with a commitment to improving the working environment and transition support for trainees.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Dissecting the function of long non-coding RNAs during neuronal differentiation and neuronal diseases
  Dr J Aspden, Dr G Hautbergue, Dr J Fontana
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst 85% of our genome is transcribed, only 4% is protein-coding. In fact, many non-coding RNAs exist, some of which are similarly processed to mRNAs, termed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does mosquito bite inflammation make virus infection worse?
  Dr C McKimmie, Dr M Lorger, Dr K Shams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The climate crisis is making mosquito-borne virus infections an increasing threat to human health. These viruses, such as those that cause Zika and dengue, are infecting more people and spreading to new countries as the climate warms and globalisation helps mosquitoes spread.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Individualised heteroclitic peptide immunotherapies for hepatocellular carcinoma
  Dr A Samson, Dr R Tooze
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a cancer of unmet need, with 12% five-year survival across all stages, due to late diagnosis and inadequate non-personalised therapies.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Metadata Integration in Biological Networks to Identify New Therapeutic Targets in Giant Cell Arteritis
  Dr L Cutillo, Prof A Morgan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD’s primary focus is to use genotypic data to elucidate the pathogenesis of giant cell arteritis (GCA) and related clinical phenotypes to identify new treatment targets.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Role of RNA modifications in virus infection
  Prof A Whitehouse, Prof S Wilson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As an intermediate molecule in the flow of genetic information, RNA offers a critical junction in the cell to regulate many cellular processes that underpin cell biology, development and tissue function.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) predisposes people to cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease: an investigation into altered collagen networks using MSCs, tissue engineering and lncRNA analysis
  Dr EG Laird, Dr JR Henstock, Dr D Young, Prof K Stellos
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

IMPORTANCE. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) present in one quarter of the population (rs1800012) is associated with osteoporotic fracture, intervertebral disc degeneration and cardiovascular disease.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Can we isolate and characterise lymphocyte subsets in paediatric samples using electrical energy and mass cytometry?
  Dr L Oni, Dr J Slupsky, Dr R Wright, Dr K Hoettges
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional flow cytometry is a tool used to detect and measure the physical and chemical characteristics of a set of cells. It is very useful for understanding inflammatory profile of diseases.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining single-cell proteomics and RNA sequencing to track heterogeneity in alphavirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr A Darby
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arboviruses spread from person to person through an insect vector. They include the alphaviruses (e.g. chikungunya virus –CHIKV, and the more tractable BSL2 model O’Nyong-Nyong virus - ONNV) which are endemic in Africa and cause significant morbidity and potentially life-long complications.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Deep learning approaches to discover new roles for non-canonical protein modifications in cancer
  Prof C Eyers, Prof A Jones
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Abnormal protein phosphorylation is strongly associated with cancer aetiology. Considerable efforts have been undertaken to profile phosphorylation signalling networks acting through serine, threonine and tyrosine residues.
