  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease
  Assoc Prof J Hughes, Prof T Milne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hughes group is interested in how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease. The ~22 thousand genes in the mammalian genome are present in the DNA of every cell but are used in complex patterns in different cell types and organs.
  Understanding the interplay of mutations and selection during cancer evolution
  Prof D Weghorn
Application Deadline: 21 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a genetic disease, subject to population genetics forces like mutation, selection and stochasticity.
  Eye disease genetics
  Prof S MacGregor, Dr P Gharahkhani
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. While there is no cure once visual loss occurs, progressive visual loss and blindness can usually be prevented by timely treatment.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Development of novel methodologies for the integration of functional genomics and genetic fine-mapping data to translate GWAS findings in arthritis.
  Dr AM Morris, Dr S Eyre, Dr G Orozco
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD project is to build on the tremendous advances we have made in the genetic understanding of arthritic diseases, and translate these findings into patient benefit.
  Understanding the relationship between type 2 diabetes, genetics and obesity to improve patient outcomes
  Dr A Brown, Prof E Pearson
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a common metabolic disease, characterised by high blood sugar, which can lead to severe medical complications.
  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  Using statistical and functional analysis to investigate the contrasting disease specific roles of IL6R and the chr17q12 locus in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma
  Dr J Curtin, Prof A Simpson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Arthritis Research UK and Respiratory Centres at the University of Manchester have extensive research programmes investigating the genetic components of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma.
  Statistical Genetics: Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human haematological traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 19 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.
