  Interplay between the translation of upstream open reading frames and ribosome nascent chain-associated factors to control gene expression in eukaryotic cells
  Dr M Pool, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic mRNAs typically contain one open reading frame that is translated into protein. However many mRNAs contain additional upstream ORFs (uORFs) that regulate protein expression by controlling the flow of ribosomes to the main ORF, often by regulated reinitiation.
  British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020. Our British Heart Foundation (BHF) 4-year PhD programme provides tailored doctoral training for postgraduate students with an interest in cardiovascular sciences.
  (MRC DTP) Peri-conceptional stress signalling through O-GlcNAcylation: effects on the early maternal-embryonic interface
  Prof J Aplin, Prof D Brison, Dr Peter Ruane, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular stress during the peri-conceptional period, including that caused by assisted reproductive treatment (ART), can lead to early pregnancy loss, reduced gestation or birthweight and altered postnatal growth, with short- (neurodevelopmental delay) and long- (cardiovascular and metabolic disease)-term health consequences.
  Accurate energy evaluation of receptor-ligand interaction
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug design routinely uses existing computational methods to evaluate the interaction energy between receptor (protein) and ligand (drug) in molecular docking.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  (MRC DTP) Regulatory chromatin and transcriptional networks impacting on embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can give rise to all of the cells in the body so a detailed understanding of how they commit to other cell fates is fundamentally important to understanding both normal human developmental processes and how developmental defects arise.
  (MRC DTP) Design and synthesis of new antivirulence drugs for treatment of tuberculosis
  Dr L Tabernero, Dr S Butterworth, Prof D Procter
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major health problem that affects billions of people worldwide and the emergence of severe anti microbial resistance (AMR) to current antibiotics is now the main challenge to eradicate the disease.
  (MRC DTP) Zinc deficiency: a potential contributor to post-stroke complications
  Dr C Lawrence, Dr D Brough, Prof C Smith, Prof S Allan
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stroke remains a leading cause of death and disability worldwide with limited treatment options. In addition to the immediate and common symptoms of stroke such as limb weakness and speech problems, stroke patients often develop complications.
  (MRC DTP) Investigating the role of neuroinflammation and cholesterol metabolism in the progression of brain injury following intracerebral haemorrhage
  Dr P Kasher, Dr D Brough, Prof S Allan, Dr A Parry-Jones
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke caused by spontaneous bleeding within the brain.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the mechanism and finding treatment of neurodevelopmental disorder caused by KMT2C mutations
  Dr S Banka, Prof S J Kimber
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. We recently identified a novel human syndrome caused by mutations in a gene called KMT2C1. Patients with this condition predominantly have developmental delay and intellectual disability indicating the important function of this gene in brain’s normal development and function.
