  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From atoms to organoids: understanding how abnormal cilia cause a neurodevelopmental disorder
  Dr T Ochi, Prof CA Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic primary cilia are the “antennae” of eukaryotic cells that detect and integrate a wide variety of environmental signals essential for photosensation in the eyes, chemosensation in the nose, and mechanosensation in the kidneys.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Role of RNA modifications in virus infection
  Prof A Whitehouse, Prof S Wilson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As an intermediate molecule in the flow of genetic information, RNA offers a critical junction in the cell to regulate many cellular processes that underpin cell biology, development and tissue function.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing microfluidic devices for cellular modelling of inherited eye diseases
  Prof C A Johnson, Prof C Wälti
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss. Over 20,000 individuals in the UK are registered blind or partially sighted because of these conditions, caused by mutations in over 260 genes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Nanoinjection: a novel single molecule technique to study alpha-synuclein amyloid toxicity inside neurons
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Aims. The aim of this project is to use nanoinjection to perform the quantitative delivery of alpha-synuclein fibrils or oligomers into the cytoplasm of neurons and then determine how many of each is required to induce cellular stress and death.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding zinc-dependent regulation of TRPC5 channels and its role in diabetes
  Dr R.S. Bon, Dr S Muench, Dr P Sukumar
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

TRPC5 ion channels are emerging drug targets, for example for CNS disorders, renal disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (Cells 2018, 7, pii.
  Skin protective mechanisms of bioactives from citrus waste
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr C Bosch, Dr C Orfila, Dr J Choo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The skin is the largest organ in our body and a barrier to the external environment. It is subjected to daily stress from biotic and abiotic factors which might affect the skin in its functionality and increase the risk to develop skin related disorders such as inflammatory skin conditions, psoriasis and eczema.
  Bioinspired glycan-nanoparticles as multifunctional mechanistic probes for virus-dendritic cell interactions
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof D Zhou, Prof W B Turnbull, Dr Y Guo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens such as HIV, mycobacteria can bind specifically to host cell surface lectins via their surface specific glycan patterns to initiate infection.
  Epigenetic temperature sensing in plants
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof B H Davies, Prof A Whitehouse, Dr J Aspden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The changing climate is already having a dramatic effect on the growth and development of the plants that support our entire civilisation.
  Improving the isolation of biologics using molecular modeling and bioinformatics
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr D Tomlinson, Dr E Paci, Prof J Houwing-Duistermaat
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type
