  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Are microbes the hidden influencers? Unravelling the genomic network of host-microbe interactions
  Dr D Rico, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Lamb, Prof R Hirt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and hypotheses. Each of us has a genome. The genome is the same in every cell of our organism but its three-dimensional (3D) structure is different in every cell type.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
  Prof K Stellos, Prof I Spyridopoulos, Dr A Gatsiou, Dr S Tual-Chalot
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation comprises a fundamental biological process tasked to protect our body against invasion of microorganisms (e.g virus, bacteria, etc).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Metadata Integration in Biological Networks to Identify New Therapeutic Targets in Giant Cell Arteritis
  Dr L Cutillo, Prof A Morgan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD’s primary focus is to use genotypic data to elucidate the pathogenesis of giant cell arteritis (GCA) and related clinical phenotypes to identify new treatment targets.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do non-coding enhancer RNAs confer genetic risk in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
  Dr Dan Bose, Dr J Cooper-Knock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an aggressive neurodegenerative disease with no effective therapy. The established genetic causes of ALS can only explain a small fraction of the observed disease phenotypes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Building integrated machine learning and genomic approaches to quantitate bone quality and fracture risk
  Prof M Wilkinson, Prof A Frangi, Prof E Zeggini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is this project for you?. This PhD Project would suit a student inspired by the prospect of participating in a truly multidisciplinary team.

  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Targeting ageing mitochondrial metabolism with dietary interventions to combat colorectal cancer
  Dr M J P Simons, Dr K Campbell, Dr L Greaves
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of death by cancer in the UK. Diet in particular, impacts on colorectal cancer development.
  Artificial skyglow impacts on the chronobiology of marine organisms
  Dr A Ellison, Dr S Jenkins
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ecological impact of artificial light at night has been a rapidly growing field of global change science in recent years.
