16% of women in the UK develop high levels of sugar in their blood during pregnancy (gestational diabetes (GDM)) and rates are increasing due to rising obesity levels among women.
  Global burden and determinants of hypoglycaemia: epidemiological analyses of the Hypoglycaemia Assessment Tool (HAT) study
  Dr F Zaccardi, Prof K Khunti
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

PhD Type

Intensive glucose control results in higher rates of hypoglycaemia which negatively impacts the quality of life and prevents maintenance of a good glycaemic control.
  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.

  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.
  Identifying pharmacological targets for osteoporosis intervention using whole-genome and exome sequencing of bone related phenotypes
  Dr J Kemp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis (OP) is an often asymptomatic multi-factorial condition that is characterized by a progressive loss of bone mass resulting in increased fracture (FX) risk and reduced lifespan(1).
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
