  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Investigating IGF-1 as a cancer risk factor
  Prof V Macaulay, Prof C Verrill
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The focus of this research project is the investigation of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) as risk factors for development of cancer.
  (BBSRC DTP) Kinesin light chains: why so many?
  Prof V Allan, Prof M Ashe, Dr G Poulin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Kinesin-1 is a microtubule motor that moves many cargoes within cells, and this transport is crucial for life and health.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of TARGET OF RAPAMYCIN in nutrition sensing and plantlet development in Kalanchoë
  Dr M Kim, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How a cell determines its fate is a fundamental question in Biology. A differentiated somatic plant cell can be triggered to regain its pluripotency.
  (BHF Acc) Injectable iPSC-cardiomyocyte/peptide hydrogel composites for cardiac repair
  Dr E Cartwright, Dr D Oceandy, Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

iPSC-based cell therapies have shown promise in regeneration of the heart following MI1.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Regulation of neuronal energy production by SUMOylation
  Prof J M Henley, Dr T Craig
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain uses 20% of the body’s energy but makes up only 2% of its mass. The 100 billion neurones which make up the functional units of the brain require a constant supply of energy, mostly in the form of glucose, in order to maintain and regulate their membrane potential over their large surface area.
  Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ganley lab is interested in unravelling the molecular mechanism of autophagy (which literally translates from the Greek meaning to eat oneself).
