  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Deciphering the mechanism of enclysis: new tools for cell biology in live human tissues.
  Dr Z Stamataki, Prof J Preece, Prof D Hodson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We recently discovered that hepatocytes, epithelial cells that make up 80% of the liver, can preferentially engulf and delete T cell subsets that dampen inflammation (regulatory T cells, Tregs).
  De Novo Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.

  Precision Medicine DTP - Analysis of signaling pathways underlying development of human haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs)
  Prof A Medvinsky, Dr K Kaji, Dr A Ivens
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are broadly used in the clinic to treat blood disorders, but there is a shortage of these cells to meet clinical demands.
  Understanding and predicting disease-associated mutations in dynamic and disordered regions of proteins
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in human macrophages
  Dr G Rena, Prof C Lang
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  How do antibiotics affect the human gut microbiota? (JUGEQ20DTP2)
  Prof N Juge
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD studentship provides an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to address. fundamental questions on the role of antibiotics on the gut microbiota and acquire state-of-the art in both in silico and in vivo approaches.
  EASTBIO - Single-cell and population-level approaches to establish the impact of bone marrow adipocytes on normal human health
  Dr W Cawthorn, Dr E Theodoratou, Prof N Henderson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT) is a major feature of normal human anatomy, accounting for over 10% of total fat mass in healthy humans.
  EASTBIO: Application of MinION Nanopore sequencing to understand the impact of environmental changes on sentinel indicators of ecosystem health
  Dr E Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are increasingly aware that human, veterinary and environmental health is intricately linked and farming and food production systems must not only be resilient to environmental changes and threats but the systems themselves must also perform with minimal environmental impact.
