  The Manchester Dementia Prediction Database: Using advanced statistical methods to optimise diagnosis and prognosis for people with degenerative neurological conditions.
  Dr J Thompson, Dr A Woollams, Dr M Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Early diagnosis and accurate prognostic information are key priorities to enable people with neurodegenerative dementia to know what to expect and to enable them to plan effectively for their future needs.
  Improving sensitivity and specificity to detect epileptogenic foci by coregistered PET and MR
  Prof K Herholz, Dr R Hinz, Dr S Muthu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a frequent disorder that can be caused by focal abnormalities in the brain, which may be treatable by surgical resection.
  The use of high- and low-melanopic lighting to improve cognitive work in healthcare
  Dr D Phipps, Prof C Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Previous research has supported the notion that lighting conditions play a role in determining how well humans work on healthcare tasks.
  Impact of liver reduction diet, low calorie diet and bariatric surgery on hepatic health and cardiometabolic risk factors.
  Dr H Soran, Dr A Syed, Dr R Donn, Dr M Ferdousi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity and its related co-morbidities, especially Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM), are a major source of disability and premature mortality from micro- and macro-vascular discease.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  Infants’ early understanding of word meaning
  Dr A Ferry, Prof A Theakston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While children begin to say their first words around 12 months of age, there is evidence that they start to understand the meaning of common words much earlier in development, suggesting that infants have already started to build a vocabulary.
  Small nerve fibre damage and sexual dysfunction in diabetes and obesity. A mechanistic assessment and effect of lipid modifying agents.
  Dr H Soran, Prof R Malik, Dr R Donn, Dr M Ferdousi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes and its complications represent a growing global health burden, affecting an estimated 366 million people worldwide.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Face identity recognition: Exploring the role of observer motion and motion of viewed person
  Dr K Lander, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to identify people around us is crucial to our everyday lives, determining the nature of our social interactions and relationships.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr A Kafkas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Use of highly multi-modal PET and MRI data as a predictive biomarker of the site of recurrence in neuro-oncology
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Prof A Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary brain tumour including glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive and most common form in adults, continue to have a socioeconomic impact that is disproportionate to the tumour frequency due to our inability to obtain a cure in the vast majority of adult sufferers.
  The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
  The role and regulation of microtubules during axon growth and degeneration
  Prof A Prokop
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axons are the enormously long cable-like processes of neurons that wire the nervous system. These delicate structures have to be maintained for a life time.
  Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.
  Parallel processing by neurons in the thalamocortical pathway
  Dr R Petersen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each of our brains contains more neurons than there are people on the planet. Everything that we experience or do involves large groups of neurons operating in concert.
