  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Interbacterial competition during Mycobacterium abscessus colonisation of the lung in people with cystic fibrosis
  Dr T Palmer, Dr M Brodlie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-limiting genetic disorder in the UK. Respiratory infection is responsible for the majority of morbidity and mortality.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the mechanisms leading to CHK1 inhibitor resistance in cancer therapy
  Prof N Perkins, Prof S Rocha, Dr J Hunter
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA replication stress results from stalled DNA replication forks and is a feature of cancer cells, where it can lead to the genomic instability driving tumorigenesis.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mitochondrial DNA mutations in blood: Why do they decline?
  Dr S Pickett, Prof M Collins, Dr O Russell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial diseases are caused by mutations in nuclear and mitochondrial (mt) genomes and there is currently no cure for these debilitating disorders.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The role of circular RNAs in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease
  Dr M Jackson, Dr M Santibanez-Koref, Dr G Hudson, Dr O Izuogy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK alone there are currently 145,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In an increasingly aged population, this number is rising, with on average 2 people every hour told that they have PD.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Towards specialised treatments for childhood-onset neurological diseases
  Dr C Schneider, Prof R Horvath
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegeneration is a feature of many debilitating, incurable diseases with underlying defects in RNA metabolism (e.g. spinal muscular atrophy, ALS), but the link between RNA biology and neuronal death is poorly understood.
  Conservation genomic management for endangered species breeding programmes
  Dr R Ogden, Dr G Gorjanc, Prof J Hickey, Dr E Humble
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Ex-situ management, including captive breeding, plays a vital role in the conservation of endangered and threatened species (McGowan et al., 2017).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing microfluidic devices for cellular modelling of inherited eye diseases
  Prof C A Johnson, Prof C Wälti
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss. Over 20,000 individuals in the UK are registered blind or partially sighted because of these conditions, caused by mutations in over 260 genes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Dissecting the function of long non-coding RNAs during neuronal differentiation and neuronal diseases
  Dr J Aspden, Dr G Hautbergue, Dr J Fontana
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst 85% of our genome is transcribed, only 4% is protein-coding. In fact, many non-coding RNAs exist, some of which are similarly processed to mRNAs, termed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From atoms to organoids: understanding how abnormal cilia cause a neurodevelopmental disorder
  Dr T Ochi, Prof CA Johnson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic primary cilia are the “antennae” of eukaryotic cells that detect and integrate a wide variety of environmental signals essential for photosensation in the eyes, chemosensation in the nose, and mechanosensation in the kidneys.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Individualised heteroclitic peptide immunotherapies for hepatocellular carcinoma
  Dr A Samson, Dr R Tooze
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a cancer of unmet need, with 12% five-year survival across all stages, due to late diagnosis and inadequate non-personalised therapies.
