  How passive diffusivity in cells can be a function of protein diffusant’s physiochemical properties
  Dr R Bearon, Prof Y-C Lin
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of protein distribution and dynamics is vital for cellular functions and organization. Defects in protein transport have been implicated in degenerative and neoplastic diseases.
  Developing Artificial Intelligence Tools for the Identification of Sleep Apnoea
  Dr Y Zheng, Dr S Craig, Prof GYH Lip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) occurs due to the repetitive closure of the pharynx during sleep, leading to sleep fragmentation and, often, daytime somnolence.
  Investigating the role of the kidney in Alkaptonuria
  Prof G Bou-Gharios, Prof J A Gallagher
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alkaptonuria (AKU) is an ultrarare disease with prevalence in most populations between 1 in 250,000 to 1 in 1,000,000. AKU is a disorder of tyrosine metabolism in which degradation of tyrosine is blocked at the level of homogentisic acid due to congenital lack of homogentisate dioxygenase enzyme.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Novel non-coding RNAs in Drug response, DNA Damage and Aging
  Dr A Kanhere
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the biggest surprises of human genomic sequencing was the finding that only ~2% of the genome codes for proteins.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) predisposes people to cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease: an investigation into altered collagen networks using MSCs, tissue engineering and lncRNA analysis
  Dr EG Laird, Dr JR Henstock, Dr D Young, Prof K Stellos
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

IMPORTANCE. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) present in one quarter of the population (rs1800012) is associated with osteoporotic fracture, intervertebral disc degeneration and cardiovascular disease.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Can we isolate and characterise lymphocyte subsets in paediatric samples using electrical energy and mass cytometry?
  Dr L Oni, Dr J Slupsky, Dr R Wright, Dr K Hoettges
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional flow cytometry is a tool used to detect and measure the physical and chemical characteristics of a set of cells. It is very useful for understanding inflammatory profile of diseases.
  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.
  Digital soft contact lenses design and validation
  Dr A Abass, Prof A Elsheikh
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft contact lenses are medical devices largely used to correct the eye refractive error for more than 125 million people worldwide.
