  Adaptive immunity in multiple sclerosis: studying the antigen specificity of autoreactive B cells in MS
  Dr S J Curnow
Applications accepted all year round
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease involving immune attack by autoreactive T cells and B cells. We have been studying the phenotype, frequency and antigen specificity of these adaptive immune cells in human MS.
  An organotypic model of the bone remodelling process
  Dr A Naylor, Dr L Grover
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Project Background. Maintenance of bone integrity is a key medical challenge, especially in our ageing population. Bone tissue is actively produced, remodelled and repaired throughout life and disruption of this process causes fragility and disability.
  Mechanistic studies relating to vitamin D deficiency and sepsis severity
  Prof D Thickett, Dr D Parekh
Applications accepted all year round
Vitamin D deficiency as a therapeutic target in pneumonia, sepsis and ARDS.
  Regulating the inflammatory infiltrate in health and disease: Identification of new therapeutics
  Dr H McGettrick
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate of outstanding ability to join a developing and active research team at The University of Birmingham led by Dr Helen McGettrick www.birmingham.ac.uk/Helen-McGettrick.
  The role of cells in the persistence of inflammation
  Prof C Buckley
Applications accepted all year round
A characteristic feature of chronic inflammatory reactions is their persistence and predilection for certain sites. Our group investigates the role that tissue resident stromal cells (fibroblasts) play in determining both the switch to persistence as well as the site at which inflammation occurs.
  The role of long non coding RNA in the pathology of osteoarthritis joint disease
  Dr S Jones, Prof J Lord
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the role of “long non coding RNA” in osteoarthritis (OA). OA is a painful joint condition and a leading causes of disability in the world.
  The role of novel genes in CNS axon regeneration
  Dr Z Ahmed, Prof A Logan
Applications accepted all year round
CNS injuries result in considerable mortality and morbidity, with limited prospects of recovery for acquired disability. Lost central nervous system (CNS) neurons are not replaced and severed CNS axons do not regenerate.
