  Uncovering the role of ASPM in mitosis
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof M Peckham, Dr J Bond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ASPM (abnormal spindle-like, microcephaly-associated protein) is essential in determining the plane of division in mitosis. This is important in regulating neuronal development, and enabling humans to have a large brain.
  Uncovering the role of long non-coding RNAs in uterine function for food, fertility, and health
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr N Forde, Dr J Aspden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In all mammalian species studied the majority of pregnancy loss occurs prior to implantation of the embryo into the uterine endometrium.
  Understanding molecular motors through imaging and modelling
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr SA Harris, Prof M Peckham, Dr O.G. Harlen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dimeric coiled coils are formed by two alpha helices that wrap around each other to bury hydrophobic residues. They are found widely throughout the proteome, and have important mechanical roles in proteins.
  Understanding the role maternal environmental stressors play in endometrial cell signaling: consequences for food, fertility and health.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof J.E. Ladbury, Dr N Forde
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Correct and appropriate function of the uterine endometrium is essential for early pregnancy success in mammalian species and dysregulation of signaling in this tissue leads to pregnancy loss and disease progression.
  How do RNA structures in the Chikungunya virus genome control virus replication in human and mosquito host cells?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.K Tuplin, Prof A Whitehouse
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chikungunya virus is a mosquito-transmitted arbovirus that re-emerged as an epidemic in 2005 around the Indian Ocean, before spreading across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.
  New tools for structural cell biology
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof N A Ranson, Dr R.F. Thompson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Do you like microscopes? This is the project for you!. One of the ultimate aims of structural biology is to understand the structure of macromolecules, and the complexes they make, in their cellular environment.
  Role of m6A reader proteins in virus infection
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof A Whitehouse, Dr A.K Tuplin
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA is an intermediate molecule in the flow of genetic information from DNA to protein. It is a critical junction for the cell to regulate gene expression, through multiple RNA processing events.
  Understanding amyloid aggregation mechanisms of alpha- and gamma synuclein in vitro and in vivo
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key pathological hallmark of synucleopathies, including Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is the formation of cytotoxic alpha-synuclein and gamma-synuclein aggregates respectively, that lead to neuronal cell death.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  Hormonal control of reproductive architecture in bread wheat
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With Dr Andrea Harper, University of York. Key to the reproductive success of flowering plants is the production of appropriate numbers of fruit and seed in space and time (reproductive architecture).
