Integrated PhD in Life Sciences Doctoral Training Programme (iDTP). A specialist four-year PhD programme at the University of Birmingham, open for applications for October 2020 entry.
  Cancer Research UK Birmingham Centre - Clinical and Non-Clinical PhD Fellowships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre's PhD programme provides an outstanding opportunity for early career training in this dynamic, multidisciplinary environment.
  3D Super-Resolution Correlative Light-Electron Microscopy of the Protein Complexes
  Prof Dirk-Peter Herten, Dr I Styles
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation plays an important role in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. The modulation of inflammation and immunity by CD4+ regulatory T-cells has therefore received increasing attention.
  Quantification of the Dynamic of Protein Complexes
  Prof Dirk-Peter Herten, Dr R K Neely
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In many diseases, including infection and inflammation, the cellular response to extracellular stimuli (e.g. pathogens) is regulated by membrane receptor signalling representing more than 50% of today’s clinical drug targets.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
