  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  Cellular imaging of neurovascular breakdown in mixed models of Atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease: The search for early biomarkers and targets for therapy.
  Dr J Berwick, Prof S Francis, Dr C Howarth
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular coupling (NVC) is the mechanism responsible for regulating the supply of oxygen and glucose to active regions of the brain.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Precision Medicine DTP - A personalised automatic approach for assessing and modelling the brain deep tissue waste drainage related structures
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr M Valdes Hernandez, Prof J Wardlaw, Dr M Bernabeu
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Previous experiments (Kress 2014) have suggested that brain features known as perivascular spaces play an important role in the clearance of metabolic waste from the brain tissue.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Illuminating roles of Wnt/b-Catenin signalling in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
  Dr K Kaji, Dr S Tomlinson, Prof J Fallowfield
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) caused by a high fat diet (HFD) is a growing major public health problem world-wide.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Taming the Hippo in Cancer through Proteogenomics
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr C G Hansen, Prof J Lehtio
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pleural Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer, and is one of the deadliest cancer types. Current methods of treatment and early diagnostics are ineffective.
  Development of an analytical platform for the purification and characterisation of AAV viral vectors for applications in gene therapies
  Prof MJ Dickman, Prof M Azzouz, Prof DC James
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a 3.5 year EPSRC-funded PhD studentship to work under the supervision of Prof Mark Dickman, Prof David James and Prof Mimoun Azzouz in the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Sheffield.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Beyond Making Thiazolines and Oxazolines: Expanding the Enzymatic Repertoire to incorporate other 5- and 6-membered heterocyclic rings in peptides
  Dr W Houssen, Dr S Dall'Angelo, Dr I Fotheringham
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic peptides have a great therapeutic potential with several examples reach the clinic e.g. gramicidin S (antibiotic), ziconotide (pain relief), somatostatin (anticancer) and cyclosporine (immunosuppressant) and many others are in the late stages of clinical trials e.g.
  Building novel in vitro models to generate musculoskeletal interfaces using 3D bioprinting
  Dr J Paxton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal interfaces are the areas of the body where tissue types meet, for example the bone-tendon, bone-cartilage and muscle-tendon junctions.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Modelling Sex Dependent Differences in Human Liver Disease using Stem Cell Derived Models and Organ on a Chip Devices
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine
  Dr D Hay, Prof P Saunders
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, which include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.
  PhD: Molecular mechanisms of chronic pain
  Dr P McHugh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic pain (CP) is a major cause of long term disability. Through a previous RNA seq analysis of human pain patients and animal models of neuropathic pain, we have identified several key pathways and molecules that could be important in disease process.
  Understanding the biomechanical changes associated with a popular walking programme to optimise care for individuals with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr K Martin, Dr D Blana
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting, interdisciplinary project that brings together social science, data science and engineering, and will give the student invaluable skills for a career in academia or the medical technology sector.
  Investigating the impact of particle manufacturing process on nanomedicine biological fate
  Dr Z Rattray, Prof Y Perrie
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new drug candidate faces multiple challenges during its development, and in oncology drug development, a key challenge is achieving the balance between efficacy and off-target toxicity.
