  (BBSRC DTP) Improving 3D X-ray Imaging of Live Cells and Soft Tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical X-ray imaging in three dimensions (commonly referred to as a CT scan) is a key diagnostic tool. Micro-computed X-ray tomography (microCT) has the potential to image relatively large biological samples in 3D at sub-micron resolution.
  (BBSRC DTP) Plant-based production of a vaccine against gonorrhoea
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhoea is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. N. gonorrhoeae is a close relative of Neisseria meningitidis, which causes meningococcal meningitis.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the role of RNA binding proteins in the regulation of NF-kappa B dynamics, inflammation and cell death
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Muldoon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-kB is a key signalling system that controls inflammation and cell fate, dysregulation of which can lead to inflammatory disease or cancer.
  (BHF Acc) Injectable iPSC-cardiomyocyte/peptide hydrogel composites for cardiac repair
  Dr E Cartwright, Dr D Oceandy, Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

iPSC-based cell therapies have shown promise in regeneration of the heart following MI1.
  (BHF Acc) Multi-parametric MR imaging of myocardial fibrosis, perfusion and oxygenation
  Dr J Naish, Dr Chris Miller, Prof T Cootes, Dr E Johnstone
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The BHF Manchester Centre for Heart and Lung Magnetic Resonance Research (MCMR) is a new £3.1M investment in cardiovascular MR (CMR) aimed at translating multidisciplinary research excellence in Manchester into cardiovascular patient benefit.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  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

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
