  P2X receptors in the peripheral nervous system: molecular pharmacology (FOUNTAINSU20SF)
  Dr S Fountain
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors are ligand-gated ion channels activated by extracellular adenosine 5’-triphosphate (ATP). In the peripheral nervous system (PNS), ATP is a neurotransmitter acting in both autonomic and sensory nerve control of body tissue function and homeostasis.
  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
  Modelling the effect of ageing on Drosophila and mouse clockneurons
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova, Prof H Piggins
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms are subject to daily environmental changes caused by the earth’s rotation leading to the evolution of circadian clock mechanisms that regulate changes in behaviour, physiology and metabolism across the day to ensure their timely occurrence and allowing environmental adaption.
  UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme across 4 strategic themes

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme provides state-of-the-art PhD training across four strategic themes. Fundamental mechanisms of disease.
  Join a new graduate school at the interface of biology and computation: IMPRS-BAC in Berlin

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for outstanding graduates from all over the world - whether you have a degree in bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, molecular biology or something related, as long as you have a passion for solving biological questions through computational methods, the IMPRS-CBSC may be the PhD program for you.
  Assessing the Behaviour of Endotoxin in Biopharmaceutical Formulations: towards creating improved medicines
  Dr A Golovanov
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Alexander Golovanov (The University of Manchester) and Dr Adrian Podmore (AstraZeneca). Biopharmaceuticals are the fastest-growing type of treatments for wide range of diseases, with enormous potential for personalised medicine.
  Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction
  Dr A Kitmitto, Dr E Cartwright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.

  EASTBIO Neuroplasticity of a spinal motor circuit
  Dr W Li, Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One primary function for vertebrate spinal cord is to generate commands to control rhythmic locomotion like walking, swimming or running.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Using single molecule spectroscopy to determine the drivers of conformational change in protein kinases
  Dr C Dodson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein kinases are central to many cellular processes (eg cell division and the response to external signals) and are current drug targets in cancer, cardiac and inflammatory disease.
  Linking age-related joint degradation to diet by bone metabolism and SUMOylation
  Dr C L Hammond, Dr T Craig, Dr D Paul
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) affects a majority of people over 65 leading to loss of mobility and quality of life. OA is multifactorial with genetic, mechanical and inflammatory factors playing a role.

  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a large body of evidence that consumption of oily fish or supplementation of fish oils leads to improvements in cardiovascular heath (as well as other health benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects).
  Modelling the cardiovascular side-effects of anaesthesia
  Prof I Bojak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Propofol is currently the anaesthetic most commonly employed in surgical operations. However, it has a variety of cardiovascular side-effects that are potentially life-threatening, in particular for fragile patients.
