  Induced pluripotent stem-cell (iPSC) reprogramming in bone and blood cancers (Ref:SF20/APP/PAL)
  Dr D Pal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

iPSC (somatic cells reprogrammed to an embryonic-stem-cell-like state) are not only a means of patient relevant disease modelling, but de-differentiation of terminal cells to their primitive precursors often reveal aberrations in tissue development.
  Molecular studies on the effects of ageing on the bladder and bowel (Ref: SF20/APP/RANSON)
  Dr R Ranson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing can result in a progressive loss of physiological function resulting in a reduced quality of life for elderly people. Significantly, many aged people suffer from bladder and bowel disorders, which can include constipation and/or incontinence-both faecal and urinary.
  Population-wide predictive pharmacogenomics for targeted RNA-cleaving and genome editing therapeutics (GEdit-SEQ) (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS3)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last decade a sleuth of interventions based on gene therapy and oligonucleotide therapeutics have received regulatory approval, paving the way for the era of personalised and N-of-1 medicine.
  Promoter associated non-coding RNA (ncRNA) regulation of MUC5B expression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS1)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an ageing-associated, debilitating lung disease that manifests mainly in men over 60 years of age.
  Promoter associated non-coding RNA (paRNA; ncRNA) regulation of MUC5B expression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS2)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an ageing-associated, debilitating lung disease affecting mainly men over 60 years of age.
  Synthesis and Evaluation of Metal Chelators Targeting Cancer Cells (Ref: SF20/APP/TETARD3)
  Dr D Tetard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal chelators have demonstrated their ability to combat the growth and survival of cancer cells. This is thought to be due to their ability to inhibit metalloenzymes or promote oxidative damage for example.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal chelators have demonstrated their ability to combat the growth and survival of cancer cells. This is thought to be due to their ability to inhibit metalloenzymes or promote oxidative damage for example.
  The Biological and Pathological Effects of Blinking (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT1)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Blinking is essential to spread the tear film over the surface of the eye and so keeps the eye moist and lubricated to ensure a smooth surface for refraction of light and provision of essential nutrients and protective antimicrobial molecules.
  Understanding the Biological Properties of Medicinal Maggot Secretions (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT2)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medicinal maggots have long been used to promote healing of skin wounds. Their beneficial effects are, at least in part, due to secreted molecules that facilitate tissue rejuvenation, and that have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory actions.
  Understanding the effects of lung disease and vaping to the lung through breath-based bioanalytics (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS4)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your breath contains a vast amount of information about you. whether you’ve had a drink, damaged your liver, your blood blood glucose levels, even type of breast cancer treatment can be assessed through breath.
