  How does the vascular matrix environment influence platelet activation?
  Dr S Calaminus
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The platelet is a blood cell that plays a key role in the prevention of bleeding. For platelets to form a clot or thrombus effectively, they must rearrange their actin cytoskeleton to withstand high shear stress from blood flow in the arteries.
  Identification of novel glucose-dependent alterations responsible for vascular dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr R Sturmey
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a growing global healthcare problem. The majority of people living with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), characterised by a resistance of the body to the action of insulin.

  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
