  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Liquid biopsy of the liver to improve molecular targeted cancer therapy
  Prof C Goldring, Prof F Falciani, Dr A Chadwick, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular targeted therapies have revolutionised oncology. However, whilst patient life-expectancy is improving, these therapies carry a risk of causing damage to healthy tissues in the body, especially to the liver.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining single-cell proteomics and RNA sequencing to track heterogeneity in alphavirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr A Darby
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arboviruses spread from person to person through an insect vector. They include the alphaviruses (e.g. chikungunya virus –CHIKV, and the more tractable BSL2 model O’Nyong-Nyong virus - ONNV) which are endemic in Africa and cause significant morbidity and potentially life-long complications.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the potential of a regenerative medicine therapy to treat cardiorenal disease
  Prof P Murray, Prof J Schneider, Prof H Poptani, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The strong association between CKD and CVD has been recognised for many years, but the mechanisms by which CKD causes CVD are largely unknown.
  Does phenotypic plasticity help or hinder rapid adaptation?
  Dr S J Plaistow, Prof J Hill, Dr V Oostra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic stress is altering our planet at an unprecedented rate and has major implications for global biodiversity, health and the economy.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  How passive diffusivity in cells can be a function of protein diffusant’s physiochemical properties
  Dr R Bearon, Prof Y-C Lin
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of protein distribution and dynamics is vital for cellular functions and organization. Defects in protein transport have been implicated in degenerative and neoplastic diseases.
