  EASTBIO: Investigating the effect of underutilised, emerging, polyphenol-rich berries on cardiometabolic health.
  Dr N Hoggard, Dr V Rungapamestry, Dr G McDougall
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Nigel Hoggard (University of Aberdeen). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/rowett/research/nigel-hoggard.php. Dr Vanessa Rungapamestry (University of Aberdeen).
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  EASTBIO Understanding strawberry cell walls as a guide to breeding future-proof fruit genotypes (CASE project with Edward Vinson Ltd)
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Prof S C Fry, Prof D Uhrin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. This project targets one of the BBSRC’s strategic priority areas. Bioscience for Sustainable Agriculture and Food; sub-theme Crops and soil.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Anti-cancer activities of dietary phytochemicals (BaoY-PshezhetskiyDU19SF)
  Dr Y Bao, Prof D Pshezhetskiy
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epidemiological studies show that dietary phytochemicals such as isothiocyanates (ITCs) derived from cruciferous vegetables can decrease the risk of many types of cancer.
