  Health Opportunity for Patient Empowerment in Gestational Diabetes (HOPE-GDM)
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof A M Graham, Prof R Qahwaji, Prof A Locke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gestational Diabetes is a temporary condition diagnosed at 24-28 weeks gestation, where the body is unable to maintain normal blood glucose levels due to insulin resistance during pregnancy.
  Post-translational modifications mediated by carbon dioxide
  Prof M Cann, Dr J Kastl
Application Deadline: 25 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon dioxide is vital to life processes that include metabolism, cellular homeostasis, chemosensing and pathogenesis. It is of further strategic research importance when considered with regard to human disease.
  Design and Development of Artificial Nerve Grafts
  Dr K Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference Number. EMRC-KDA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. There is a lack of viable treatment options for nerve damage and disease in humans.
  Defining the role of p53 in cancer immunotherapy
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt, Dr P. Neeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite clear evidence of an association between the tumour suppressor p53 and immunity, a gap in knowledge exists regarding its role in modulating immune responses, or its value in predicting patient responses to immunotherapy.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Metabolic reprogramming and chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) subtype of breast cancer are limited to conventional chemotherapy agents.
  Cold Response Dynamics in the Maize Leaf Growth Zone
  Dr H AbdElgawad, Prof B Gerrit
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Early spring cold is a major limiting factor for maize cultivation in North-Western Europe. Typically, cold spells are only transient, and it is known that the capacity of varieties to recover strongly determines their final yield.
  Ensuring chemical safety through toxicity studies in Daphnia using state-of-the-art molecular, imaging and modelling approaches
  Prof M Viant, Dr B Campos, Dr C Rivetti, Dr I Sorrell
Application Deadline: 18 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting 4-year BBSRC iCASE PhD opportunity bridges the University of Birmingham’s (*) metabolomics team and Unilever’s Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC), both having state-of-the-art facilities and renowned research programmes, thereby creating an excellent environment for this challenging yet impactful research project.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

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].
