  3 or 4 year PhD Programme in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology at UCL

Funding Type

PhD Type

This programme offers a unique environment with one of the largest and strongest concentrations of high quality developmental and stem cell biologists anywhere in the world.
  RVC PhD Studentship - Equine metabolic syndrome associated laminitis: The role of adiponectin
  Dr N Menzies-Gow, Prof J Elliott
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of the project is to further elucidate the role of the adipose-tissue derived mediator adiponectin in equine metabolic syndrome associated laminitis.
  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.
  Mathieu Latreille /Cellular Identity and Metabolism
  Research Group: Cellular Identity & Metabolism
  Dr M Latreille
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the fundamental questions in biology is how the identity of a cell is preserved in adult organisms and adjusts its identity in response to physiological signals to maintain tissue homeostasis (1).
  Understanding obesity: studies on the top-down control of feeding behaviour
  Research Group: Metabolic Signalling
  Prof D J Withers
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Metabolic Signalling group investigates the role of the central nervous system in the regulation of energy homeostasis with a view to understanding the causes of metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
  Imperial MRC DTP PhD Studentships 2020-21

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imperial College London is offering up to 10 fully funded PhD studentships to start in 2020-21. As part of this support, funding is provided at the end of three years for a six month writing up period.
  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.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  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.
  4-year MRC/Sackler PhD fellowship in Neurodevelopmental Disorders
