  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  The regulation of platelet function - towards new strategies to prevent thrombosis
  Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets perform a pivotal role in the regulation of haemostasis, a physiological response to injury that prevents excessive bleeding.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  Oral vitamin D spray as a novel treatment for 22q11 deletion syndrome
  Dr A McNeill, Dr C Mazzà
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

22q11 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic disorder, affecting about 1/2500 people (as common as cystic fibrosis). It is due to a small missing piece of chromosome 22 on the long arm (q) at position 11.
  Adrenomedullin-2 receptor antagonists in T-cell lymphoma
  Dr G Richards, Prof T Skerry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer cells rely upon communication between themselves and to the host tissues to survive and grow. One hormone involved in cancer signalling is adrenomedullin (AM), which also has important physiological roles in the control of blood pressure.
  Novel G Protein-Coupled Receptor interactions with RAMP accessory proteins
  Dr G Richards, Prof T Skerry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell signalling is critical to multicellular organisms and underlies physiology and diseases. Understanding of the ways cells sense and respond to hormones and growth factors is a constantly-evolving field.
  Targeting IL-1B to improve outcome for patients with breast cancer bone metastases.
  Dr P Ottewell
Application Deadline: 30 July 2020

Funding Type

  Stress, Healthy Ageing and Physical Exercise (SHAPE)
  Prof AC Whittaker, Dr G Ryde, Dr J Connelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SHAPE project will examine the associations between physical activity and psychological, social and physical wellbeing in older adults, and develop a protocol for an intervention to influence healthy ageing across psychosocial, neuroendocrine and physiological health outcomes.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
