  Sticky biomolecules - from sediments to astrobiology
  Dr D Benoit
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion of biological material to igneous rocks and silicates is still a poorly understood phenomenon at a molecular level. Yet such information is crucial in many domains where biological material comes into contact with rocky formations.

  Targeting chronic inflammation to improve vein graft function following bypass surgery.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Prof M Loubani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Targeting chronic inflammation to improve vein graft function following bypass surgery. Coronary heart disease (CHD) causes over 66,000 deaths/year in the UK.
  The Role of CCR5 in Embryo Development
  Dr R Sturmey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemokines are small peptides that play key roles in cell migration and signalling. They act primarily by binding specific cell surface receptors to drive intracellular signalling and are key mediators of the immune response.
  Platelets and hypoxia: how do varying oxygen concentrations affect platelet function and signalling?
  Dr M Arman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets have key functions in regulating haemostasis and maintaining vascular integrity, which can cause cardiovascular disease if unbalanced.
  Re-purposing diabetes medicines to manage bleeding complications in myeloproliferative neoplasms.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr D Allsup
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of three related blood cancers in which the bone marrow overproduces one of the three cellular components of blood (erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets).
  Epidemiology of common endocrine disorders and diabetes
  Dr T Sathyapalan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD project is available in Prof Sathyapalan group with a focus on the epidemiology of common endocrine disorders and diabetes at the University of Hull.

  Dr L Sadofsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human Rhinovirus (RV) is the major cause of the common cold. There are no current treatments or vaccines for the virus other than over the counter preparations to alleviate symptoms.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
