  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding proteotoxicity of alpha- and gamma-synuclein in neuronal C. elegans models of neurodegeneration
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synucleopathies, such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD), are neurodegenerative diseases characterised by the accumulation of alpha-synuclein (asyn) aggregates into Lewy Bodies in neurons, leading to toxicity and cell death.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) predisposes people to cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease: an investigation into altered collagen networks using MSCs, tissue engineering and lncRNA analysis
  Dr EG Laird, Dr JR Henstock, Dr D Young, Prof K Stellos
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

IMPORTANCE. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) present in one quarter of the population (rs1800012) is associated with osteoporotic fracture, intervertebral disc degeneration and cardiovascular disease.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Functional and genetic analyses of HSPB mutations underlying progressive neuronal deficits in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease
  Dr J Barclay, Dr E Seward, Dr D Hammond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying progressive neurological deterioration is a key challenge in modern biomedical research.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Machine learning approaches for the analysis of circulating tumour DNA
  Dr A Auer-Fowler, Dr A Jorgensen, Dr J Cook
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour cells arise from genetic variants (usually mutations) in cells, which lead to unrestrained cell division.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of an automated analysis pipeline to study bacterial cell wall structure and resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most widely used antibiotics ever discovered (beta-lactams) are targeting the enzymes that polymerize peptidoglycan (PG), the essential component of the bacterial cell wall.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does the human innate immune system kill the Streptococcus pneumoniae bacterium during infection?
  Dr A Fenton, Dr L Prince
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae is a highly successful human pathogen and a leading cause of pneumonia, a disease responsible for millions of deaths every year.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How to kill a difficult superbug: understanding the evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridioides difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridioides difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospitals and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Activation of Aurora Kinase A by DNA damage – understanding the signalling pathway to improve radiotherapy response
  Dr H Bryant, Prof C Eyers, Prof P Eyers
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation is a mainstay of cancer therapy, however radioresistance is a significant challenge in the treatment of locally advanced, recurrent and metastatic cancers.
