  Dysregulated fatty acid trafficking in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes: a study of Black-British and White-European men
  Research Group: School of Life Course Sciences
  Dr L Goff
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To start. 1 September 2020. Award. A 3 year PhD studentship. School. School of Life Course Sciences. Supervisors. Dr Louise Goff and Dr Martin Whyte.
  Heat adaptation in older/elderly individuals
  Dr O Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst traditionally heat adaptation has been a priority for athletes and occupational workers ahead of exposure to hot/hot-humid environments, forecast increases in the frequency and intensity of heat waves as a result of climate change means the general public is likely to be exposed to extreme environments as part of their daily life.
  Reducing sedentary behaviour and increasing physical activity for the prevention and management of Type 2 diabetes
  Dr D Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposed research will follow a process of intervention development and evaluation targeted at reducing and breaking up sitting time for the prevention and/or management of Type 2 diabetes.
  Investigating Therapeutic Effect of Different Antioxidants in Friedreich’s Ataxia (FRDA)
  Dr S Anjomani-Virmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by epigenetic silencing of the frataxin gene. It is the most common inherited ataxia, affecting 1:50,000 Caucasians, and is characterised by neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus and skeletal deformities.
  Beta cell regeneration for diabetes therapy
  Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells hold great potential for the creation of artifical insulin-producing beta cells to treat diabetes. Matrix and matricellular components play a critical role in supporting the differentiation of stem cells into mature, functional beta cells.
  Exercise and nutritional status on metabolic factors, hormonal responses and inflammation in women
  Dr J Allgrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, adverse cardiovascular events and metabolic syndrome-related disorders.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study the increasingly recognised association between metabolic disease and neurodegeneration using in vitro cell culture methods.
  Role of telomere attrition in cardiometabolic disease risk
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Common conditions such as Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex disorders caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
