  Dr R Sloan, Prof K Ball, Dr S Wilson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Interferon Induced Transmembrane proteins (IFITMs) are a family of innate immune membrane proteins that can inhibit viral infection at cell entry (e.g.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Identifying Pathogenic B cells in Rheumatoid Arthritis
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr M Gray, Prof C Goodyear, Dr G Cowan
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is the commonest, most destructive, autoimmune inflammatory arthritis, causing chronic pain, fatigue, depression and disability.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating disease causing mutations in PNPase- an approach to understand mitochondrial nucleic acid driven auto-inflammation
  Research Group: Centre of Genomic and Experimental Medicine
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait, Dr T Chandra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Mitochondrial diseases are a heterogeneous class of disorders often characterized by failure of mitochondrial function and loss of energy associated with respiratory chain complex deficiency.

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Stromal transcriptomic signatures in prostate cancer metastasis and hormone therapy resistance
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Reproductive Health
  Dr B Qian, Prof H Y Leung, Dr A Sims, Prof P Wiklund
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

  Prof E Schirmer, Dr D Marenduzzo
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Defects in spatial genome organisation have recently been linked to human disease and the National Institutes of Health, USA director speculated that most as yet unidentified disease alleles will occur in non-coding genome regions.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Proteome-level diversity in RNA viruses
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr E Hutchinson, Dr R Burchmore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
