  Smarter habitat restoration in harmony with species reintroductions – testing solutions for the Chequered Skipper
  Dr J Hodgson, Dr I J Saccheri
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Apply now for a great opportunity to inform species recovery while developing quantitative skills!. Habitat loss and degradation remain major threats to species around the world, yet habitat restoration is also enjoying significant success in places.
  Stratification of osteoarthritis to improve equine welfare
  Dr M Peffers, Prof P Clegg, Dr V James
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Horse Trust Equine Clinical Scholarship Grant. Location. Liverpool and Leahurst Veterinary Campus. Studentship start date. summer 2019.
  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
  Understanding basic biological mechanisms and the development of targeted therapies
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD proposal is aimed at understanding some of the fundamental mechanism(s) that control extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and to develop new technologies and therapeutic based on changes in fibroblast gene expression profiling and surface antibodies during the development of connective tissue fibrosis.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  Inner ear development and evolution - investigating prenatal development of the inner ear region at the micro and macro-anatomical level
  Dr N Jeffery
Applications accepted all year round
Sound and head movements are detected by the inner ear, providing signals that are integral to how species move, interact and survive (e.g.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
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.
