Medical Research Council (MRC) Parkinson’s Disease and Neurodegeneration PhD Programme 2020/2021

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. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Uncovering the role of Phosphorylated ubiquitin in health and disease

Ubiquitylation represents a major post-translational modification that controls numerous cellular processes. In the course of our research studies into Parkinson’s disease mechanisms, we discovered that ubiquitin itself can be modified by phosphorylation. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Probing the interplay between IL-33 and GPCR signalling

The immune system plays important roles in both the response to infection and in tissue repair and homeostasis. It is a complex system made up of multiple specialised cell types, each of which must communicate with each other to coordinate an effective response. Read more

MSc by Research programme - LRRK2 kinase pathway activation during infection

LRRK2 functions as a kinase and hyperactivating mutations cause 1-2% of all cases of Parkinson’s disease. LRRK2 is highly expressed in immune cells and LRRK2 signalling appears to play a role in immune defence mechanisms. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Does CDK1 regulate NICD turnover in a cell cycle dependant manner in Drosophila Melanogaster?

Notch is one of the major highly conserved signalling pathways that regulate cell-cell communication which involves gene regulation mechanisms that control multiple processes during development and adult life, including cell fate specification within progenitors. Read more

MSc by Research programme - ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more

Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease

There is great need for improved understanding of the mechanistic biology underlying Parkinson’s disease. Such knowledge will help with development of new drugs that slow or even halt the progression of the disease. Read more
