  Stress responses in the diabetic heart: Effects of exercise training and glycaemic control
  Dr C Baldi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diabetic heart, even before developing disease, has impaired relaxation and contractility. These changes limit the work capacity of the heart (maximal cardiac output) and limit the functional capacity of people with diabetes.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Optogenetic voltage reporting to probe cerebellar to motor cortex connections
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebellum and the motor cortex are known to communicate during motor behaviour for the refinement of movement.
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  Therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cerebellar ataxias and tremors
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar ataxias and tremor are devastating movement disorders that often begin early in life and for which there is no cure.
  Changes in cerebral blood flow trigger an increase in sympathetic nerve activity – implications following acute myocardial infarction
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart function is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. Following a heart attack (myocardial infarction. MI), cardiac sympathetic nerve activity (cSNA) becomes dangerously elevated, triggering irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) that often prove fatal.
  Modulation of the pulmonary vasculature in health and disease
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pulmonary microcirculation is tightly modulated by the autonomic nervous system, the pulmonary vessel endothelium and the vascular smooth muscle.
  Central modulation of cardiac Sympathetic Nerve Activity following acute MI
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of people that suffer a heart attack (acute myocardial infarction; MI) die within the first few hours following the MI.
  Understanding the role of lymphatic endothelial cell dysfunction in mediating diabetic heart disease
  Dr R Katare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, affects endothelial cells function leading to a condition called diabetic microangiopathy. Majority of the focus is on understanding diabetes-induced changes in arterial or venous endothelial cells.
