  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Engineered Tissues for Discovery, Industry and Medicine (LifETIME)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The CDT will train the next generation of leaders in developing in vitro tissues, sensing and diagnostics to develop humanised in vitro systems to drive better drug screening.
  Development of “FXR-targeted” Nutraceuticals for Treatment of Intestinal Diseases
  Prof S Keely, Dr S Das
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The incidence of intestinal diseases, such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is significantly higher in Western societies than elsewhere in the world.
  Mechanisms of fever-induced epilepsy and related cognitive impairment
  Dr G Brennan, Prof D Henshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temporal-lobe epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder characterized by spontaneous recurrent seizures. Fever-induced seizures (febrile seizures) are the most common type of seizure in young children and are generally harmless.
  Profiling miRNA expression in acute anterior uveitis
  Prof C Murphy, Dr J Gabhann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Uveitis involves acute, recurrent or chronic inflammation of the uveal tract, the middle vascular layer of the eye. Anterior uveitis (AU), which occurs within the anterior chamber of the eye, is a frequent presentation to ophthalmologists.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Gene therapy of Huntington’s disease: can we restore cognitive function through RNA-based treatment and cholinergic neuromodulation?
  Dr M Tsanov
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project explores the gene therapy of Huntington’s disease. We will compare the patterns of motor and cognitive improvement in rodent models of Huntington’s disease exposed to RNA-based gene therapy.
  Insulin signalling and behavioural rigidity
  Dr J Glennon
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary success depends on being flexible and adapting to your environment. Our research suggests that insulin signalling is a key mechanism underlying behavioural inflexibility in Alzheimer’s Disease, obsessive compulsive disorder, type 1 myotonic dystrophy and autism.
  Mathematical modelling of cancer signalling for precision medicine
  Dr D Fey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells process intra- and extracellular signals to make vital cell-fate decisions. In diseases such as cancer, these decisions go awry due to the dysregulation of the intracellular communication networks.
  Novel mechanisms of hypoxic metabolic reprogramming in metastatic cancers
  Dr L Schito
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia, a common feature of most human cancers, activates a multifaceted transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and epigenetic adaptive program that allows cancer cells to reprogram their metabolism in order to survive the unfavourable conditions of the tumor microenvironment, and subsequently metastasize to secondary sites.
  The role of syndecan-4 as a regulator of the tumour microenvironment in pancreatic cancer
  Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project will assess the role of syndecan-4 in pancreatic cancer progression. Despite its relatively low prevalence, pancreatic cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related mortality and will claim approx.
  PhD studentship in Molecular Biology (Experimental Molecular Computing and Communication)Entry Awaiting Update by Supervisor
  Dr S Balasubramaniam, Dr L Coffey
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Post summary. Applications are invited for a PhD position funded by the Science Foundation Ireland VistaMilk “Dairy by Design” Research Centre.
