  Dr W Holmes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. At Glasgow’s Experimental MRI Centre we are interested in pushing the boundaries of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and its application to biomedical research.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the potential of a regenerative medicine therapy to treat cardiorenal disease
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  Detecting and Imaging oral blood vessels for disease monitoring using Heart-Rate Modulated Optical Coherence Tomography
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. This project offers an exciting opportunity to develop imaging technology for oral inflammation. Inflammation is an important condition underlying numerous human health conditions.
  EASTBIO A synthetic biology approach to design ‘intelligent’ organoids for the study of host-microbe interactions
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr E Cachat, Dr L Boulter
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organoids are self-organised, 3D structures generated in vitro from adult or pluripotent stem cells, that exhibit similar functionality as their tissue of origin.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  Non coding RNAs in Adrenocortical Cancer
  Prof G. Hutvagner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industry, society or clinical need for project and scientific rationale. Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare disease which occurs with an annual incidence of 2-4 cases per million with a five-year survival of less than 16-38%.
  How does the microbiome affect behaviour? Discovering neuroactive compounds made by bacteria
  Research Group: Behavioural Genomics
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risk of psychiatric diseases and neurodegeneration is influenced by genetics and external environment. Increasingly, it is also thought to be influenced by the internal environment through gut microbes.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
