  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.
  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.
  MRC DTP and CASE Studentships in Global Health Fully funded 4-year (1+3) postgraduate studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

 MRC DTP and CASE Studentships in Global Health. Fully funded 4-year (1+3) postgraduate studentships. Applications for studentships for entry in autumn 2020 now open.
  Single-cell proteomic analysis of host-factor cleavage during norovirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr M Iturriza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human norovirus is a major human pathogen, and the causative agent behind ‘winter vomiting disease’. Typically, infection is self-limited, causing diarrhoea and vomiting lasting from 24-72 hours.
  Defining the role of NF-𝜅B during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr D Turner, Prof A McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are a useful system to probe early development. They can be maintained in a pluripotent state in culture, and differentiated using well-defined protocols to all tissue types of the embryo proper.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  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.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  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.
  Novel microbial source tracking markers for identification of fecal contaminations in inflow rivers of Taihu Lake
  Dr S Raju, Prof A J McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity is open until position has been filled. The PhD studentship is available for three years subject to satisfactory progress by the student.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  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.
