MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
  Targeting molecules to mitochondria, mitochondrial radical production, thiol redox state and redox signalling (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").

Dermal cylindroma is a rare inherited disease of multiple benign, disfiguring tumors caused by inherited mutations in the gene CYLD.
  A genome-wide view of posttranscriptional processes
  Dr J Mata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A typical yeast cell contains around 40,000 molecules of messenger RNA (mRNA), whereas a typical mammalian cell more than 100,000.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
