  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  Psyllium fibre: from molecular structure to human health (WARRENQ20DTP)
  Dr F Warren
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psyllium fibre is an emerging and important source of dietary fibre, used in the treatment of many digestive disorders and extensively in the processing of foods, especially gluten free products.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Sudden cardiac death in human athletes – electrophysiological and molecular insights from the animal models
  Dr K Jeevaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting fully funded PhD studentship opportunity exploring the electrophysiological and molecular profile of the equine heart as a model for high performing human athletes.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the biophysical basis of functional Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy measurements in the human brain
  Dr L Parkes, Dr M Montemurro, Dr C Lea-Carnall
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a valuable tool used to study the chemical composition of the human brain.
  Deciphering protective factors for intervertebral disc degeneration for mechanistic insights and intervention potentials
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) can lead to a diversity of problems including low back pain and sciatica as two very painful symptomatic outcomes.
  Dissecting the tubulin diversity: understanding how tubulin isotypes regulate microtubule networks
  Dr J Ti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

α/β-tubulin heterodimers form dynamic polymers, microtubules, that are central to cellular processes, such as cell division, cell migration, and organelle transportation.
  Identifying Dengue virus receptor proteins in Aedes aegypti mosquito
  Dr A Winter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neglected tropical diseases caused by the Dengue virus (DENV), endemic Dengue fever and its more severe manifestation, Dengue syndrome, cause great socioeconomic loss as well as high mortality in Asia and South America.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
