Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain uses 20% of the body’s energy but makes up only 2% of its mass. The 100 billion neurones which make up the functional units of the brain require a constant supply of energy, mostly in the form of glucose, in order to maintain and regulate their membrane potential over their large surface area.
  Local control of synaptic protein synthesis in neurons by microRNA
  Dr J Hanley
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants
  Dr I Sparkes, Prof D J Stephens
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol.
  Identifying mechanisms for cell division plane orientation in plants
  Dr J Harrison, Dr T Gorochowski
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis.
  Molecular, Genetic and Lifecourse Epidemiology Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD Programme

  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
