  Characterising B cells in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Their role in susceptibility, pathogenesis, and treatment response
  Dr S Viatte, Dr Gemma Radley, Prof A Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that primarily affects the joints. In the UK, some patients who fail to respond to methotrexate (MTX) and TNF inhibitors (TNFi) are started on rituximab, and 20% will experience a favourable clinical response.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been transformed with the introduction of targeted therapies twenty years ago (comprising biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, bDMARDS; and the more recent small molecule JAK inhibitors).

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genetic studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been successful in identifying regions of the genome which contribute to disease risk, but it is often unclear which genes they effect.
  The molecular mechanisms of thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy cardiovascular system relies on the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells) and heart cells (cardiomyocytes) to function normally.

  Defining how skin fibroblast lineage identity and specificity is maintained ex vivo
  Dr E Rognoni, Dr J Connelly
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity for a PhD studentship within the world-renowned William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London Medical School and Dentistry (SMD) at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Predicting treatment response in juvenile idiopathic arthritis using a single cell genomics based approach
  Prof W Thomson, Dr S Smith, Mr P Martin, Prof A Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a group of chronic arthropathies of unknown cause which can result in long-term disability and poor quality of life for children and can continue well into adult life.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
