Showing 1 to 10 of 21
  Mitochondrial Genetics and Inherited Eye Diseases
  Dr P Yu-Wai-Man
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research group is focused on new gene discovery and we are using a multipronged approach to dissect the disease pathways contributing to progressive neuronal loss and blindness, including zebrafish models and patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells.
  Investigating the Immune Basis of Parkinson’s Disease (PhD only)
  Dr C Williams-Gray
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now well established that immune activation occurs in Parkinson’s disease, but whether it plays a critical role in disease onset and progression remains uncertain.
  Modelling of Diffusion Weighted MRI
  Dr G Williams
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent methodological advances in diffusion weighted MRI allows for more complex modelling of anatomical parameters.
  Functional MRI Imaging in Traumatic Brain Injury
  Dr E Stamatakis
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CENTER-TBI is a large European project that aims to improve the care for patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The work undertaken in Cambridge will examine the role of MRI in routine TBI imaging and this project will focus on the role of resting state functional MRI in TBI imaging.
  Progression in Neurodegenerative Tauopathies: Neuroimaging Biomarkers and Disease Models
  Dr J Rowe, Dr T Rittman
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the challenges in understanding neurodegenerative disorders is to relate the effect of genetic and molecular changes associated with disease to the level of the whole brain.
  Making Induced Neural Stem Cells from People with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
  Dr S Pluchino, Dr A Nicaise
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple sclerosis (MS), an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system, afflicts an estimated 2-3 million people worldwide, most of whom will ultimately develop a progressive form of the disease with few therapeutic options.
  Does Histone Deacetalyse Inhibition Reduce Atherosclerosis and Stroke Risk (PhD only) 
  Prof H Markus
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Cambridge Stroke Group led the identification of the HDAC9 (histone deacetalyse 9) gene as a risk factor for stroke. The association is specific for large artery stroke due to atherosclerosis.
  Studying the Molecular Mechanism of Mitochondrial Aminoacyl tRNA Synthetases in Neurons
  Dr R Horvath, Prof P Chinnery
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (ARSs) are essential and ubiquitous ‘house-keeping’ enzymes responsible for charging amino acids to their cognate tRNAs and provide the substrates for global protein synthesis in the cytosol and mitochondria.
  Methodology of Clinical Tests for Assessment of Cerebral Autoregulation after Traumatic Head Injury
  Prof M Czosnyka
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Various methods exist for assessment of autoregulation of Cerebral Blood Flow (CBF). They incorporate different modalities. arterial blood pressure, intracranial pressure, blood flow velocity, cerebral perfusion pressure, and brain tissue oxygenation (1).
  Mitochondrial DNA Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof P Chinnery, Dr R Horvath
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are a major cause of inherited diseases and contribute to neurodegeneration. Many are heteroplasmic, with a mixture of mutated and wild-type genomes.
