Showing 1 to 10 of 21
  Exercise, vitamin D and immune function: to explore the effects of exercise on vitamin D metabolism in humans
  Dr G Wallis, Prof M Hewison
Applications accepted all year round
Exercise is well known to be of benefit for health, including enhancing the immune system. How exercise works to enhance health is not completely known.
  Structure and function of neurohypophysial hormone receptors
  Prof M Wheatley
Applications accepted all year round
The neurohypophysial peptide hormones vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) regulate amongst other things diuresis and lactation respectively.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round
Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round
Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  Developmental programming of cardiorespiratory physiology
  Dr A Coney
Applications accepted all year round
Developmental programming has the ability to change physiological function. We recently demonstrated changes in sympathetic nerve innervation and activity that would predispose in later life to hypertension.
  Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception – a computational modelling approach
  Dr S-H Yeo
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  Cortical modulations of postural control in ageing.
  Dr S Chiou
Applications accepted all year round
Healthy aging is typically associated with structural and functional changes in the brain that have been shown to be related to declines in physiological function.
