  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian, Prof A J Wilson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Functional and genetic analyses of HSPB mutations underlying progressive neuronal deficits in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease
  Dr J Barclay, Dr E Seward, Dr D Hammond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying progressive neurological deterioration is a key challenge in modern biomedical research.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Liquid biopsy of the liver to improve molecular targeted cancer therapy
  Prof C Goldring, Prof F Falciani, Dr A Chadwick, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular targeted therapies have revolutionised oncology. However, whilst patient life-expectancy is improving, these therapies carry a risk of causing damage to healthy tissues in the body, especially to the liver.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Machine learning approaches for the analysis of circulating tumour DNA
  Dr A Auer-Fowler, Dr A Jorgensen, Dr J Cook
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour cells arise from genetic variants (usually mutations) in cells, which lead to unrestrained cell division.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C Eyers
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: MicroRNAs in the fat tissue – Next generation biomarkers for predicting drug-induced cardiometabolic disease
  Dr S Pushpakom, Prof M Bushell, Prof M Pirmohamed
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease (collectively called cardiometabolic disease) remain a major public health problem worldwide.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding how ageing can damage your heart
  Dr P Sharma, Prof GYH Lip
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Heart disease is the leading cause of global morbidity and mortality with numbers continually increasing as the global population ages.
  How will marine microalgae react to a changing nitrogen balance in the ocean?
  Dr M Fitzsimons, Dr S Ussher
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microalgae are major components of marine ecosystems worldwide, providing essential ecosystem services including using carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Killing the unkillable. Developing bacterial capture compounds to identify new targets against antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr R Corrigan, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Once inside a host, bacteria, like S.
