  Targeting inflammation to prevent brain swelling following paediatric head injury
  Dr F Corrigan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a PhD/Higher Degree by Research (HDR) to investigate how the inflammatory response to a traumatic brain injury differs in the paediatric population compared to adults.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
  Investigating how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses
  Dr R Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disease (Dr. Raymond CC Chang’s Lab. Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Neurodeglab) is looking for a pro-active PhD student with first class honor or equivalent.
  Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?
  Dr G Evans, Dr S Chawla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the regulation of an IL-1alpha inflammatory reaction
  Dr D Brough, Prof S Allan, Dr J Rivers-Auty
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inflammation is a response of the innate immune system that controls infection and promotes resistance and tissue repair.
