  Investigating the impact of chaperone activation on tauopathy in Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr HJ Chen, Dr M Plevin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia is an age-linked progressive disorder that affects around 850,000 people in the UK. Causing a substantial economic and social impact, it presents one of the toughest medical challenges with no effective therapy available for the disease.
  Investigating the impact of chronic parasite infection on immune cell development
  Dr J Hewitson, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than a quarter of the global population is infected with a parasitic worm, resulting in a range of diseases and pathologies.
  Investigating the role of the FGF pathway in gene regulation during early amphibian development.
  Dr H V Isaacs, Dr M E Pownall
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signalling pathway plays critical roles in regulating cell lineage during normal development and stem cell differentiation in culture.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
