Showing 1 to 10 of 85
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  eSports: perceptual, cognitive and visuomotor skill development in the digital world
  Dr D Souto, Dr P Duke
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Competitive video-gaming, also known as eSports, is rapidly growing to occupy the role of traditional sporting events. eSports has become a billion-dollar industry, supports professional leagues, has global reach via online tournaments and is being considered for inclusion in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
  Neural mechanisms of memory formation, consolidation and recall
  Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Understanding how the firing of neurons underlies memory functions is one of the most important and challenging goals in neuroscience.
  Behavioural and biomechanical analysis of socially induced changes in body and brain structure in desert locusts
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
All animals can tailor their phenotype to the environmental conditions they experience during their lifetime. Such phenotypic plasticity typically entails coordinated changes in morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  New ways to look at enzyme structures
  Dr P C E Moody, Dr J Basran
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Metal-catalysed activation of oxygen in biology is achieved using either copper or iron. In the case of iron, this includes the heme-containing enzymes which activate oxygen.
  Exploring the boundaries of the human acetylome
  Dr S Cowley, Prof D Panne
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Lysine acetylation (Lys-Ac) is an abundant post-translational modification (PTM) occurring on thousands of proteins. However, our understanding of ‘acetylome’ regulation and its functional consequences remains well behind other common PTMs such as phosphorylation and ubiquitination.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Making the male: the impact of germline gene networks on plant and crop fertility
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Plant fertility and food security depend upon sexual reproduction and the vital role of the male and female germlines which differentiate to produce sperm and female (egg) gametes.
  Investigating novel treatments for sepsis by understanding the pathogenesis of invasive infection
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
We have recently discovered that bacteria, previously considered extracellular pathogens replicate within a subset of macrophages before causing invasive infection (Ercoli et al., Nature Microbiology 2018).
  Estimating excess rates of disease-specific morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular disease patients
  Dr M Sweeting, Dr P Lambert
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Linkage of large-scale disease registry and population electronic health record (EHR) data has huge potential to address key questions regarding the life-course of patients following a cardiovascular disease (CVD) diagnosis, determining whether there are excess rates of comorbidity and determinants of variations in excess rates.
