  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Correlating electrical and imaging signals to better understand cell state
  Prof P Verkade, Prof J Kiely, Prof R Luxton
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to monitor and influence the physiological state of a cell (population) is of critical importance not just for reproducible results in academia but especially in the pharmaceutical industry.
  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.
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder driven by mutations in the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene.
  Local control of synaptic protein synthesis in neurons by microRNA
  Dr J Hanley
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurons are a unique cell type because they are extremely polarised, with long processes extending millimetres from the nucleus in the cell body.
  Molecular basis of cellular organisation
  Dr M Dodding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab aims to understand the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways that control the distribution and dynamics of subcellular components, focusing on structure, function, molecular mechanism and regulation of the key biomolecular machines regulate cellular organization including cytoskeletal motor proteins.
  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.
