  Precision Genome Editing using Modulators of dsDNA Break Repair Pathways
  Prof C Berger-Schaffitzel
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CRISPR/Cas9 relies on introducing specific double-stranded DNA breaks (DSBs) into the target genome which are then repaired by the predominant host cell DSB repair mechanisms.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Activation of the plant cell cycle by sugars; pathways involved in stimulation of CYCD expression by carbohydrates
  Dr W Dewitte, Prof J Murray
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth on land, including the production of our food and non food crops, is ultimately the result of cell production and cell growth.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Aging before birth: identifying early-life influences on telomeres and the epigenetic clock
  Prof RM John
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Being born biologically “aged” may contribute to higher risk of disease later in life. Importantly, premature placental aging has been suggested as a mechanism contributing to fetal growth restriction and an increased the risk of a stillbirth.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Analysis of Gene Interactions in Neurodegeneration
  Dr M Taylor, Prof A Rosser
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The striatum is a key component of the basal ganglia in the forebrain. One of its important roles is in the control of voluntary movement.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Developing a new bio-imaging method based on correlative light electron microscopy with gold nanoparticles
  Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Correlative Light Electron Microscopy (CLEM) is one of the most powerful imaging technologies as it combines the advantages of live cell imaging from light microscopy (LM) with the sub-nanometer spatial resolution of electron microscopy (EM).
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Development of peptide-based delivery systems to improve biotherapeutic efficacy within tumour models
  Dr P Watson
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The last three decades has witnessed the spending of billions of pounds on attempts to develop peptides and oligonucleotides into clinically effective therapeutics.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Elucidating the role of mechano-sensitive miRNAs in cartilage homeostasis: a multi-organism study
  Dr E Blain
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will investigate the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in regulating cell and tissue-dependent responses in synovial joints subjected to mechanical load.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Metabolic engineering in mint plants: increasing essential oil yields through genetic manipulation of biosynthetic pathways
  Dr S Scofield
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is an excellent opportunity to become part of an international Global Challenges Research Fund project to enhance the yield of high-value essential oil compounds in Mentha (mint) plants in order to produce elite mint varieties for cultivation and commercial exploitation by local farming communities in rural Uganda.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Mixing it up: building the tools required for next-generation molecular microbiologists to study polymicrobial disease
  Prof E Mahenthiralingam
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last two decades it has become clear that multiple diseases such as lung infections in people with cystic fibrosis are caused by a community of microorganisms (the microbiota), rather than a single pathogen in isolation.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Pollen-pistil communication in flowering plants: a role for pollen endocytosis?
  Dr B De Graaf, Dr E Lloyd-Evans
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reproduction success in flowering plants is unequivocally determined by the species-specific communication events between pollen and pistil resulting in fertilisation, and the development of viable seeds ultimately.
