Cell Biology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Leeds

We have 53 Cell Biology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Leeds

How do environmental cues affect reproduction?

This project is available to self funded candidates only. The School of Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans. Read more

Ageing to Arrhythmias

Cardiac arrhythmias are a leading cause of sudden death and morbidity. This project aims to identify why they occur in the elderly and novel routes to therapies. Read more

Molecular mechanisms of pacemaker (sinus node) dysfunction in ageing, heart failure and athletes

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The heart’s pacemaker, the sinus node, initiates the action potential that causes the heart to beat, and the atrioventricular node conducts the action potential from the atria to the ventricles, the pumping chambers of the heart. Read more

Characterisation of adrenoceptor and muscarinic receptor subtypes coupled to potassium channels in chondrocytes from bovine cartilage

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Several outward potassium currents have been identified in bovine chondrocytes (review Mobasheri et al. 2012). These include ATP-sensitive and a Calcium-activated potassium currents (Sanches & Lopez-Zapata, 2011). Read more

Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases. Read more

ERK5 MAPK signalling in Alzheimer’s disease

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Neurodegenerative diseases have devastating effects on individuals’ lives and our society, with no effective treatments available. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs). Read more

Genetics: Investigating the functional effect of novel genes and genetic variants in malignant hyperthermia susceptibility using model systems

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is an inherited condition, where patients exposed to anaesthetic drugs are susceptible to a dramatic hyperthermic and hypermetabolic response that can contribute to a significant proportion of post-operative morbidity and deaths. Read more

Cancer: Characterization of EGFR signaling activated by the endothelium in the process of breast cancer metastasis to the brain

The Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is important in normal physiology regulating epithelial development and homeostasis. In cancer, deregulation resulting from mutation, amplification or transcriptional upregulation promotes tumorigenesis. Read more

Ethnic-specific markers and mediators of metabolism and disease risk

Globally, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular are the leading cause of death. These diseases are linked to a person's age, ethnicity, culture, genetics, and lifestyle habits, such as diet and exercise. . Read more
