  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.

Funding Type

PhD Type

The annual cost to UK health service due to food related ill health is £6Bn. In addition food fraud is estimated to cost UK business in the region of £11 Bn per annum.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the host-microbiome interactions to promote healthy skin function
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof A McBain, Prof C A O'Neill, Dr A Kendall
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen, being the leading bacterial cause of human acute gastroenteritis and responsible for an estimated 0.5 billion cases each year.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of TARGET OF RAPAMYCIN in nutrition sensing and plantlet development in Kalanchoë
  Dr M Kim, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How a cell determines its fate is a fundamental question in Biology. A differentiated somatic plant cell can be triggered to regain its pluripotency.
  (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.
  (MRC DTP) Insulin-mediated antimicrobial secretion from pancreatic acinar cells regulates the gut microbiome and barrier function: Link between diabetes and severity of acute pancreatitis
  Dr J Bruce, Prof I Roberts, Dr J Pennock
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute pancreatitis is a serious and sometimes fatal inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Severe cases are characterised by infected pancreatic necrosis, sepsis and multiple organ failure, which increases mortality and prolongs critical care occupancy.
  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.
