  The impact of recurrent hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetes on neuronal structure and function
  Dr J Harvey, Dr A McNeilly, Prof R McCrimmon
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent non-communicable diseases, affecting 6 million people in Europe, 10% of whom have Type 1 diabetes (T1D).
  MRC Prize PhD Programme 2019/2020 Protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation in cancer and neurodegenerative disease

Funding Type

PhD Type

The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit is a world-famous centre for the study of cell signaling and how disruption to signaling pathways causes human disease.
  Medical Research Council (MRC) Parkinson’s Disease and Neurodegeneration PhD Programme 2019/2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking bright and enthusiastic young students to join a new PhD programme at the MRC-PPU dedicated to understanding the cellular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
  Medical Research Council (MRC) Cancer and Genome Integrity PhD Programme 2019/2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in DNA replication or DNA repair can lead to mutations and other genomic alterations that give rise to cancers, and consequently tumours tend to have a high degree of genome instability.
  Development of Optical Nanobiosensors for Opioids and Fentanyl-related Substances
  Dr O Adegoke, Prof N Nic Daeid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Opioid use is currently on the increase and its abuse poses serious risks that affects the economic state of all societies worldwide as well as health and social wellbeing.
  Development of biomechanically musculoskeletal models and its application in understanding of ageing process for health
  Dr W Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process in health is one of main research topics currently and in the near future. The key icon for ageing in health is daily movements, e.g.walking.
  Investigations into the neuroprotective actions of leptin and leptin-based mimetics in models of tauopathy.
  Dr J Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synaptic communication within brain networks are impaired leading to significant memory deficits and dementia.
  Identification of a biomarker of sensory dysfunction for patients who have developed neuropathic pain following cancer chemotherapy using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and machine learning.
  Prof D Steele, Prof L Colvin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Acute pain is intrinsically unpleasant and aversive but is useful as it has survival benefit. However, many people suffer from chronic treatment-resistant pain that lasts months or years, lacks survival benefit, seriously impairs quality of life and causes unnecessary suffering.
  Controlling the uncontrollables: How FAM83 proteins regulate the serine/threonine protein kinase CK1 family in cells
  Dr G Sapkota
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Members of the CK1 family of kinases, thought to be constitutively active, control a plethora of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, circadian rhythms, and Wnt signalling, yet how they are controlled to allow such diversity remains poorly understood.
  Deciphering the mechanisms behind DNA repair pathways crucial for preventing cancers
  Prof J Rouse
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our chromosomes are frequently subjected to insults that damage DNA, and if not rectified the resulting DNA lesions can cause genome mutations and human disease.
