  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
  Prof K Stellos, Prof I Spyridopoulos, Dr A Gatsiou, Dr S Tual-Chalot
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation comprises a fundamental biological process tasked to protect our body against invasion of microorganisms (e.g virus, bacteria, etc).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining senolytic treatment with exercise to prevent the development of sarcopenia
  Dr S Miwa, Prof A McArdle, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Muscle loss with ageing (sarcopenia) is a major contributor to frailty and loss of independency in older people. Exercise intervention can improve muscle function, but is not able to prevent age-associated muscle loss.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: In vitro whole blood thrombosis models under flow conditions: The future of thrombosis diagnostics and research
  Dr P Philippou, Dr V Ridger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All current commercially available assays that determine a patient’s risk of having a blood clot or a bleed rely on assays that are static rather than more physiological flow conditions.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding zinc-dependent regulation of TRPC5 channels and its role in diabetes
  Dr R.S. Bon, Dr S Muench, Dr P Sukumar
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

TRPC5 ion channels are emerging drug targets, for example for CNS disorders, renal disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (Cells 2018, 7, pii.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does a common SNP predispose to age-related cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease? A tissue engineering and lncRNA approach using MSCs
  Dr EG Laird, Dr JR Henstock, Dr D Young, Prof K Stellos
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

IMPORTANCE. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) present in one quarter of the population (rs1800012) is associated with osteoporotic fracture, intervertebral disc degeneration and cardiovascular disease1-3.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the potential of a regenerative medicine therapy to treat cardiorenal disease
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding how ageing can damage your heart
  Dr P Sharma, Prof GYH Lip
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Heart disease is the leading cause of global morbidity and mortality with numbers continually increasing as the global population ages.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: DUB-ing chronic inflammation: a drug repurposing approach to target deubiquitinases in inflammatory disease
  Dr H Ismail, Prof S Renshaw, Dr L Guo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inflammation is an essential defence mechanism adapted by our bodies to eliminate damaged cells, irritants and pathogens.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Is less sometimes more? Balancing immunity, homeostasis and healthy ageing
  Dr I Evans, Dr M J P Simons
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our immune system perform key roles, such as shaping our bodies as they develop, fighting-off infection, and repairing tissues.
