Biological Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Dundee

We have 88 Biological Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Dundee

School of Life Sciences Black Scholars Programme

The School of Life Sciences and the University of Dundee are committed to addressing under-representation in postgraduate research and we are pleased to offer our first Masters by Research Scholarships for UK students from Black or Black-Mixed Backgrounds. Read more

MSc by Research: Glueing proteins together with small molecules

Recent advances from the Ciulli Lab and others have contributed to the establishment of a game-changing new modality of chemical intervention into biological system – one that moves beyond the state-of-the-art. Read more

MSc by Research: How are SUMO substrates selected for modification ?

SUMO has diverse roles in cellular physiology that in most cases are mediated by its ability to interact non-covalently with hydrophobic patches of low sequence complexity known as SUMO Interaction Motifs (SIMs). Read more

MSc by Research: Non-canonical functions of SRSF protein kinase (SRPK) in pluripotent stem cells

The overarching goal of our research is to identify and characterise the protein kinase signalling pathways that control stem cell pluripotency and differentiation and determine how protein kinase signalling is disrupted to cause human developmental disorders. Read more

MSc by Research: Protein secretion landscapes in human immune cells

Roughly one third of the human genome encodes secretory and membrane proteins. Following synthesis in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), these proteins are captured into transport vesicles for delivery within the cell. Read more

Normative modelling of resting-state EEG across the lifespan for application in the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease

With a rapidly aging human population worldwide, neurodegenerative diseases represent a pressing medical and societal concern. Given the increase in life expectancy, dementia is expected to affect almost 152 million people by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Disease International, 2018). Read more

Investigating mechanisms of extra-cellular matrix remodelling and fibrosis in the gastrointestinal tract

Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease, are increasing in prevalence globally. These are caused by chronic inflammation in the gut, there is no cure and medications are not effective for all. Read more

Regulation of protein palmitoylation in the heart by persulphidation

Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is known to have cardioprotective qualities. Persulphidation is a reversible post-translational modification (PTM) in which a persulphide group is formed by the reaction of H2S with the thiol groups of cysteine residues in proteins. Read more

The effect of early-life stress on cardiac function in later life

Stressful experiences in early childhood can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in later life. How early-life stress (ELS) influences susceptibility to CVD onset remains largely unknown. Read more
