Showing 1 to 10 of 15
  DNA damage response and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr S Khoronenkova
Applications accepted all year round
Human cells repair thousands of DNA lesions daily. The majority of lesions arise from the intrinsic chemical instability of DNA and include single-strand breaks and base modifications.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round
This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Characterisation of the mechanism of norovirus VPg-dependent RNA synthesis.
  Prof I Goodfellow
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Noroviruses have an impact of >$60 billion pa, yet we have no vaccines or therapeutics. This project will use a combination of molecular and biochemical approaches to dissect norovirus VPg-primed RNA synthesis.
  Characterization of clonal evolution of T-cell lymphoma
  Prof M Q Du
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
It has long been assumed that malignant T-cell lymphoma is a monoclonal disease. i.e. the tumour grows and expands from a single cell.
  Characterization of the roles of PP1 phosphatases in cytokinesis
  Dr P D'Avino
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Cell division faithfully partitions the genomic information between the two daughter cells and errors in this process have been implicated in many human diseases.
  Early PI3-mediated translation response during intracellular bacterial and viral infection
  Dr B Chung
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Biotic stresses often occur on short timescales, making rapid response crucial for survival of both host and pathogen. Cells respond to stress by regulating gene expression at multiple steps but especially transcription, translation and protein turnover.
  How do malaria parasites sense and respond to DNA damage?
  Dr C Merrick
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis.
  Understanding the role of the Guanosine Trimethylase TGS1 in Acute myeloid leukaemia
  Dr I Barbieri
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
RNA methylation is a reversible post-translational modification to RNA that epigenetically numerous biological processes. The biological and molecular functions of RNA methylation are generally very poorly understood, both in normal and pathological biological processes.
