  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  Modelling geographical variation in supply and demand influences on the use of health care in England
  Dr Laura Anselmi, Prof M Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the drivers of geographic variation in health care expenditure and utilization is key in identifying needs for health care and planning equitably the distribution of health care supply.
  Molecular and cell-biological mechanisms mediating establishment of neuron polarity during development
  Dr R Das, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cells undergoing neuronal differentiation in the embryonic spinal cord delaminate from the neuroepithelium, resulting in loss of apical cell polarity.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  New methods for ultra-high throughput proteomics for biomarker discovery
  Dr R Unwin, Prof A D Whetton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to reliably measure protein concentrations in blood samples is critical for the identification of disease biomarkers to allow patients’ stratification and improve patient care.
  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  Oxidative protein folding of industrially and pharmaceutically important recombinant proteins
  Dr H Lu, Dr A Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidative protein folding is an important process for the function of many proteins, which includes both folding and formation of native disulphide bonds.
  Parallel processing by neurons in the thalamocortical pathway
  Dr R Petersen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each of our brains contains more neurons than there are people on the planet. Everything that we experience or do involves large groups of neurons operating in concert.
