  Biomarkers of Genotoxic and Reprotoxic Effects after chemical exposure in vitro in human cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof D Anderson, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In human monitoring procedures, measurements obtained from endpoints to determine genetic damage are sometimes referred to as biomarkers.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the contribution of dietary extracellular vesicles to healthy human development
  Prof M Westwood, Dr L Harris, Prof A Nicolaou, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to adapt behaviour in response to nutrient availability is important for all cells but particularly so for trophoblasts, as these cells form the placenta - the interface between mother and fetus - and act as fetal sentinels of the maternal environment.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Genetic interrogation of virulence in Candida albicans; the major fungal pathogen of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using markers of gene evolutionary age to identify function within gene regulatory networks related to embryo implantation
  Prof D Brison, Dr A Stevens, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof M Westwood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful implantation relies upon synchrony between a competent blastocyst and receptive endometrium. Molecular networks mediating these events at implantation are not well understood in humans.
  Biological and biophysical characterisation of novel virulence factors from pathogenic fungi of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogenic fungi kill an estimated 1.2 million people every year. The global incidence of life-threatening fungal infections is rising, and the threat to public health from drug resistant isolates and emerging pathogens such as Candida auris is serious and growing.
  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.
  Exercise and nutritional status on metabolic factors, hormonal responses and inflammation in women
  Dr J Allgrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, adverse cardiovascular events and metabolic syndrome-related disorders.
  Feline hyperaldosteronism: immunohistochemical, genetic and functional characterisation of the adrenal gland in hypertensive cats
  Prof H Syme, Prof M Brown
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertension is a common problem in geriatric cats, particularly those with renal disease and often results in blindness. Improved understanding of the pathogenesis of feline hypertension could result in earlier identification of those cats that are most at risk, or lead to novel targets for treatment.
  How do prenatal steroids elevate autism risk?
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a devastating disorder that affects 1% of the population and is the most costly condition in the UK.

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
  Targeting IL-1B to improve outcome for patients with breast cancer bone metastases.
  Dr P Ottewell
Application Deadline: 30 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
