  Biological and biophysical characterisation of novel virulence factors from pathogenic fungi of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogenic fungi kill an estimated 1.2 million people every year. The global incidence of life-threatening fungal infections is rising, and the threat to public health from drug resistant isolates and emerging pathogens such as Candida auris is serious and growing.
  Genetic interrogation of virulence in Candida albicans; the major fungal pathogen of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is an opportunistic fungal pathogen that causes superficial and life-threatening infections in humans. During mucosal infection, C.
  Elucidating the interactions between the immune and the epithelial compartments in Inflammatory Bowel Disease using mini-guts
  Dr Joana Neves, Dr Peter Irving
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The maintenance of intestinal homeostasis depends on the interactions between several compartments including the gut epithelium, the intestinal microbiota and the gut-associated immune system.
  Studying immune-epithelial-microbial interactions in Inflammatory Bowel Disease using mini-guts
  Dr Joana Neves, Prof M Curtis
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The maintenance of intestinal homeostasis depends on the interactions between several compartments including the gut epithelium, the intestinal microbiota and the gut-associated immune system.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying seed priming and longevity of Apiaceae crop seeds with morphological dormancy
  Prof G Leubner
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

The overall aim of the project is to investigate the "Molecular mechanisms underlying seed priming and longevity of Apiaceae crop seeds with morphological dormancy".
  PhD POSITION - Advanced 3D optical imaging of endocrine signalling mechanisms in fish development
  Dr T Correia, Dr D Power, Dr R Guerra, Dr A Bassi
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH PROJECT. 3D optical imaging techniques can provide detailed information throughout mesoscopic scale (mm-cm) samples (e.g zebrafish).
  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).
  Gut microbiota, wholegrain and pancreatic islet function in the development of type 2 diabetes
  Dr A Costabile, Dr A Hauge-Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project area. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has predicted that 629 million people will have diabetes by 2045, which will be over double the figure for 2000.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Telomere length elongation following treatment with chemotherapeutic drugs. Aim: To investigate the mechanisms which leads to telomere length elongation after treatment with tricostatin A and azacytidine.
  Dr T Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are specialised structures, which are present at the ends of chromosomes and serve to protect the chromosome from degradation during cell division.
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
