  (BBSRC DTP) Modulating the microtubule network to improve nerve regeneration
  Dr N Gardiner, Prof A Prokop, Dr I Hahn, Dr A Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axon terminals typically undergo dynamic extension and retraction processes in response to stimuli such as neurotrophic factors, physical stimuli or damage.
  (BBSRC DTP) Neural circuit mechanisms of sensory perception
  Dr R Petersen, Dr I Schiessl
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebral cortex has long been known to be a critical part of the brain’s computational machinery. damage to it, through stroke or neurodegeneration, causes severe deficits of perception and cognition.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Dr M Pool, Prof C M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA granules play key roles in cells controlling many aspects of mRNA fate. For instance, in response to stress the relocalisation of mRNAs to mRNA processing bodies (P-bodies) and stress granules facilitates the degradation or storage of unwanted or valuable mRNAs, respectively.
  (BBSRC DTP) Perceptual stability and optic flow parsing in Autism Spectrum Condition
  Dr P Warren, Dr E Gowen, Dr R Champion
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a neurodevelopmental disorder diagnosed by deficits in social communication and interaction and restricted patterns of behaviour.
  (BBSRC DTP) Plant-based production of a vaccine against gonorrhoea
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhoea is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. N. gonorrhoeae is a close relative of Neisseria meningitidis, which causes meningococcal meningitis.
  (BBSRC DTP) Predictive Genotype-Phenotype-Fitness Mapping in E.coli
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr P Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genotype-phenotype-fitness mapping, or the connection between genetic mutations and their effects on organismal fitness, lies at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  (BBSRC DTP) Stress reactivity and social loss: the effects of adverse childhood experiences on neurobiology throughout the lifespan
  Dr N Muhlert, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are living in an ageing population. Roughly one in five people in the UK is aged over 65. As people live longer there is an increasing need to discover factors that promote healthy ageing.
  (BBSRC DTP) Tackling the genomic dark matter through system engineering of ncRNAs in yeast
  Prof D Delneri, Prof P Cai
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are thought as of genomic "dark matter" for which the biological significance has been largely underestimated.
  (BBSRC DTP) The evolution and development of mutualistic cooperation in nonhuman primates and humans
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz, Dr E Fe-Rodriguez, Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most perplexing problems in biology and psychology is human cooperation. How can coordination and prosocial acts such as helping exist in the face of free-riding and cheating? One solution involves mutualistic interactions.
