  (A*STAR) Elucidation of molecular footprints of kidney fibrosis through integrative ‘omics’-based analysis
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Dr A Adamson, Prof A Woolf
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fibrosis is a common pathway of structural damage in many kidney diseases. It is usually diagnosed when patients present with an irreversible drop in glomerular filtration rate.
  (A*STAR) RNA-based sensors of host-imposed stress in the major fungal pathogen of human lungs: Potential as drug targets
  Prof E Bignell, Prof J Micklefield
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The often-fatal fungal lung disease invasive aspergillosis (IA) has claimed more than 8 million human lives since its. emergence ~ 40 years ago.
  (A*STAR) Understanding cilia as a complex system: insights from molecular co-evolution
  Dr K Hentges, Dr D Talavera
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cilium is a complex structure built from hundreds of proteins which must function as a single unit within the cell. A particular type of specialised motile cilia are present during development.
  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) Complexity of heart development arising from evolution of signalling systems
  Dr K Hentges, Dr D Talavera, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein families grow or shrink in size during evolution due to gene duplication and gene loss events. These events provide opportunities for protein function specialisation or innovation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Definition of integrin signalling networks in neurons in vivo
  Prof A Prokop, Prof M J Humphries
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) of the plasma membrane physically tie cells together into tissues, both via interaction of cells with other cells or with ECM (extracellular matrix); they also constitute hubs of information exchange with neighbouring cells and the environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) From mucin biochemistry to pulmonary immunity: How do mucins promote antimicrobial lung defences?
  Prof E Bignell, Prof D Thornton, Dr A Horsley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory mucus plays multiple essential roles in mammalian lung function, from hydrating the epithelium and supporting gaseous exchange, to expelling inhaled particles and microbes and providing a conduit for innate and adaptive immune signaling.
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional and structural analysis of RBBP5: a histone tail modifier essential for development, disease and healthy ageing
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks, Dr A J Whitmarsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome is the blueprint of any living system. However, it is the regulation of gene expression that enables life. For transcription to take place, the molecular machinery involved has to access genomic DNA.
  (BBSRC DTP) How is our head formed? – alx1 homeobox gene and craniofacial development
  Dr S Herbert, Dr T Takahashi, Prof M Rattray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent technological advancement of bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing and live imaging has transformed medical research.
