  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  Macromolecular Structures from Single Molecule X-Ray Diffraction Experiments
  Prof HG Grubmuller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

- You are a physicist or chemist who wants to reveal how life works at the molecular level?. - You know how to combine computer power and theory to solve biological problems?.
  Discovering the neuronal signalling mechanism at the heart of human heart disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr I Jayasinghe, Prof E White, Prof N Gamper
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cardiac dysrhythmia a leading cause of mortality and long-term morbidity worldwide. Over 25% of these originate in the heart’s electrically-autonomous (pacemaking) cells without a detectable heart attack.
  How passive diffusivity in cells can be a function of protein diffusant’s physiochemical properties
  Dr R Bearon, Prof Y-C Lin
Application Deadline: 1 June 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.
  Translation of Cardiovascular Control Models: Are ‘resistant hypertension’ patients truly drug resistant and does neuronal dysregulation contribute?
  Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Prof GYH Lip, Dr A Shantsila
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertension is major health problem across the world affecting 30-40% of adults, and its prevalence continues to grow, especially in developing countries.
  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.
  Use of electroencephalography for the discovery of a functional marker of MCI converting to dementia. The AlzSM project.
  Dr F Tamagnini, Prof G J Stephens, Dr G Stothart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia is the main chronic disease leading to disability amongst the elder population worldwide and it currently represents a healthcare emergency at a global level.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
