  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  RVC PhD: Why are women more at risk of type 2 diabetes from statin use than men?
  Dr M Gage, Prof C Wheeler Jones
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of worldwide mortality. Females are less at risk of CVD compared to males before menopause.
  Determining how immune responses are regulated at mucosal surfaces
  Dr M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  Tissue antigen and immune cell turnover in health and disease
  Dr R Busch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy immune system is in a state of restful homeostasis. Activation of the immune system, whether to fight infections or during immune-mediated diseases, involves substantial changes in the rates at which immune cells and proteins are produced and destroyed (turnover).
  Assessing the ability of hypoxic pre-conditioning to enhance the immunomodulatory capacity of canine cardiac stem cell as a bridge to the treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy.
  Dr D Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a common and serious disease, which imposes a significant welfare burden in dogs. DCM is particularly well characterise in Dobermans where a 58.8% cumulative prevalence has been identified in European lines.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Single-cell proteomic analysis of host-factor cleavage during norovirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr M Iturriza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human norovirus is a major human pathogen, and the causative agent behind ‘winter vomiting disease’. Typically, infection is self-limited, causing diarrhoea and vomiting lasting from 24-72 hours.
  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
