  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene-NOWNANO)
University of Manchester & Lancaster University, North West Nanoscience Doctoral Training Centre. Graphene NOWNANO is a recently established Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Manchester in partnership with Lancaster University.
  (A*STAR) Analysis of the role of microRNAs in the regulation of NF-kappaB dynamics and function
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project will investigate the control of NF-kB. This transcription factor is one of most important cell signalling systems in the body that controls inflammation and cell fate.
  (A*STAR) Elucidation of molecular footprints of kidney fibrosis through integrative ‘omics’-based analysis
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Dr A Adamson, Prof A Woolf
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The fibrosis is a common pathway of structural damage in many kidney diseases. It is usually diagnosed when patients present with an irreversible drop in glomerular filtration rate.
  (A*STAR) Investigating the role of Lrg1 in chronic kidney diseases
  Dr S Abraham, Prof M Tomaszewski, Dr N Ashton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects 10-20% of adults and is a major and increasing public health burden. CKD has several aetiologies that share a final common pathway characterised by an inadequate angiogenic response to renal hypoxia that could potentially serve to enhance the fibrotic phenotype.
  (A*STAR) Investigating transcriptional networks involved in blood lineage commitment
  Prof G Lacaud, Dr K Batta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transplantation of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) is a curative treatment for many malignant and non-malignant haematological disorders.
  (A*STAR) Programming human pancreatic progenitors for endocrine differentiation
  Prof N Hanley, Dr R Jennings
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
There is an exciting opportunity for a PhD student to undertake highly distinctive, interdisciplinary research on human pancreatic beta cell differentiation.
  (BBSCR DTP) Design of allosteric small molecule probes of fibrosis using molecular dynamics simulations
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr K Piper Hanley, Dr R Whitehead
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Integrins are a family of protein receptors that play a major role in cell survival, growth and migration. Their function is to transmit signals across the cell membrane by undergoing an elegant large scale structural rearrangement.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Applying – omics methods to map the circadian matrisome
  Dr J Swift, Dr Q-J Meng, Prof K E Kadler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Circadian rhythm regulates and synchronises biological processes through a daily cycle. Molecular clocks in cells throughout the human body are entrained to a ‘master clock’ located in the hypothalamus, and cells in almost all tissues have been found to contain rhythmic genes.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Understanding how macrophages restore immune health after infection
  Dr G Lopez-Castejon, Dr D Brough
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Inflammation is the response of the body to tissue danger.
  (BBSRC DTP) Are the pathways that protect tissues from mechanical stress lost in ageing?
  Dr J Swift, Dr S Richardson, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The defining qualities of our cells - their physical features and function - can be determined by their surroundings, but the tissue environment can be demanding.
