  (MRC DTP) The role of eye movements in memory processing in Neurofibromatosis type 1
  Dr D Montaldi, Dr S Garg, Dr A Kafkas, Dr E Burkitt-Wright
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) is a common single gene autosomal dominant genetic disorder affecting 1 in 2500 people. Around 80% children with NF1 are affected by cognitive impairments and approximately 50% are affected by neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  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.

Multimorbidity refers to the co-existence of two or more chronic conditions in an individual and its prevalence is increasing due to aging populations.
  (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.
