  Disintegration of protein clearance pathways during ageing: a parallel proteomics approach
  Dr Rahul S Samant
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accumulation of misfolded or otherwise non-native proteins in the cell is linked to an array of ageing-related disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases and cancers1.
  Exploring the role of the Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Receptor- Type F (PTPRF) in focal adhesion dynamics
  Dr H Sharpe
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dynamic and reversible phosphorylation of tyrosine residues is a key feature of intercellular communication. Through the regulated activities of kinases and phosphatases, cells are primed to respond to changes in their environment.
  Signalling to the Code: Understanding the biochemical regulation of DNA methylation in stem cells
  Dr M Christophorou
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do our cells, all of which have exactly the same set of genes, adopt such different fates, morphologies and functions? How do cells then respond to…
  Using the immune system to cure traumatic brain injury
  Dr A Liston
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traumatic brain injury is one of the leading causes of death and disability. Around 20% of traumatic brain injury cases are fatal, with survival leading to the number one cause of life-long disability.
  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases.
  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
  Structure, Function and Biogenesis of the Mycobacterial Cell Wall
  Prof G Besra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been no significant decrease in worldwide mortality due to tuberculosis (TB) since before the time of Koch; the advent of sanatoria and chemotherapy, which drastically reduced TB in the more developed countries, has had no profound effect on the global problem.
  UCL-Birkbeck MRC Doctoral Training Programme across 4 strategic themes

Funding Type
