  University Alliance DTA3 - three-year fully-funded PhD

Funding Type

PhD Type

DTA3/COFUND offers a chance to be trained at the UK's top professional and technical universities. Operated by University Alliance, the programme is supported by the MSCA PhD programme.
  How do phosphodiesterases contribute to the pathophysiology of heart failure?
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure (HF) remains a major cause of death with worse 5-year survival than all forms of cancer combined. This project seeks to understand the mechanisms that underlie two important contributing factors to death in HF patients; i) contractile failure and, ii) the increased propensity for arrhythmias.
  Characterising coordination difficulties in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff, Dr A Casson
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. ~80% of autistic individuals also have altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination and abnormal gait patterns, causing considerable problems with activities of daily living.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  Identification of mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation and effective therapies
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in clinical practice with particular high prevalence in aged populations.
  Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys.
  Triggering movement in Parkinson’s through imagery and observation
  Dr E Poliakoff, Dr E Gowen, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parkinson’s disease is one of the commonest neurodegenerative diseases, which profoundly affects movement. Typically, a person is slower to initiate movements and the movements themselves are of lower amplitude.
  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
