  (MRC DTP) Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  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) Improved identification of brain tumour extent on advanced multi-modality medical images
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Dr M Asselin, Prof A Jackson
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gliomas are primary brain tumours which span a spectrum from comparatively slow growing tumours in young adults to highly aggressive tumours presenting later in life.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  (MRC DTP) Imaging early blood-brain barrier dysfunction in dementia
  Dr I Schiessl, Prof S Allan, Mr B Dickie, Dr L Parkes
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) actively regulates delivery of nutrients to the brain, as well as protecting the brain from microbes and toxins present in the blood.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the biophysical basis of functional Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy measurements in the human brain
  Dr L Parkes, Dr M Montemurro, Dr C Lea-Carnall
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a valuable tool used to study the chemical composition of the human brain.
  (MRC DTP) Placental vascular development in pregnancies complicated by diabetes
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone, Dr P Brownbill, Dr I Chernyaysky
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes (type 1 & 2) complicates 2-3% of pregnancies. Abnormal fetal growth is common in these pregnancies, manifest as both fetal overgrowth (macrosomia) and fetal growth restriction.
  (MRC DTP) Imaging the microvasculature in preeclampsia
  Dr A Murray, Dr Stephanie Worton, Dr E Johnstone, Dr J Myers
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Preeclampsia, new onset high blood pressure and protein in the urine in pregnancy, occurs in 3% of pregnancies and is a common cause of maternal and infant illness and death worldwide.
  (MRC DTP) Using super-resolution microscopy to understand immune cell inhibitory receptors and develop novel immune therapies
  Prof D Davis, Dr J Honeychurch
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopy allows us to study immune cell activity in unprecedented detail. Recently, Davis’s research team has used these microscopes to study the changing arrangements of molecules on the surface of immune cells as they survey other cells for signs of disease.
  (MRC DTP) Design of allosteric small molecule inhibitors of fibrosis using advanced molecular simulation techniques
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr K Piper Hanley, Dr R Whitehead
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrins are a family of protein receptors that play a major role in cell survival, growth and migration. Their function is to transmit signals across the cell membrane by undergoing an elegant large scale structural rearrangement.
