Project Description. At Glasgow’s Experimental MRI Centre we are interested in pushing the boundaries of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and its application to biomedical research.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional and structural analysis of RBBP5: a histone tail modifier essential for development, disease and healthy ageing
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks, Dr A J Whitmarsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome is the blueprint of any living system. However, it is the regulation of gene expression that enables life. For transcription to take place, the molecular machinery involved has to access genomic DNA.
  The genetic basis of canine oral melanoma for the prediction of disease behaviour
  Dr V James
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) undertakes research on many key aspects of companion animals and livestock health and production.
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
  Non-invasive Mapping of Oxygen Extraction Fraction in Patients with Breast Cancer: Development of Novel Multi-Parametric Relaxometry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Methods
  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Molecular simulation study of the Nrf2-Keap1 pathway, the master regulator of cellular redox homeostasis
  Dr A Pisliakov, Prof A Dinkova-Kostova
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development and application of fast Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging methods for neuro-chemical profiling
  Prof J Schneider, Prof S Short
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

While Magnetic Resonance Imaging is well established to assess anatomy, structure and function in patients and in animal models of human disease alike, (routine) MR Spectroscopy tools to investigate metabolic alterations are far less common.
  *EASTBIO* Modelling telomere length dynamics in a multicellular organism.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr H Ferreira
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Health. Telomeres are protective structures that cap the ends of linear chromosomes. At their core, telomeres are formed from hundreds to thousands of repeats of a consensus telomeric DNA sequence.
