  Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations
  Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required).
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  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.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  Mechanisms behind fetal vascular dysfunction in diabetic pregnancies

PhD Type

The central research focus of our group is to understand the mechanisms regulating two key functions of human blood vessels. permeability and angiogenesis.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round

Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  The analysis of genetic and environmental contributions to the risk of congenital heart disease
  Dr S Loughna, Prof J D Brook
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

According to BHF statistics 12 babies are born with heart defects in the UK each day and more cases. are diagnosed in later life.
  The genomic basis of chiral variation and speciation in mirror-image snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr A MacColl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While our bodies are bilaterally symmetric on the outside, the internal organs exhibit consistent, directional asymmetries in their position or anatomy, such that left/right positional errors are an important class of human birth defect, and in later life, numerous diseases affect seemingly symmetric organs in a lateralised fashion.
