  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) How is our head formed? – alx1 homeobox gene and craniofacial development
  Dr S Herbert, Dr T Takahashi, Prof M Rattray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent technological advancement of bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing and live imaging has transformed medical research.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving 3D X-ray Imaging of Live Cells and Soft Tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical X-ray imaging in three dimensions (commonly referred to as a CT scan) is a key diagnostic tool. Micro-computed X-ray tomography (microCT) has the potential to image relatively large biological samples in 3D at sub-micron resolution.
  (BBSRC DTP) Light-dependent control of physiology via the brain’s central clock
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aside from helping us perceive the world around us, light is a key regulator of physiology and behaviour due to its influence on the brains internal clock in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN).
  (BBSRC DTP) Predictive Genotype-Phenotype-Fitness Mapping in E.coli
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr P Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genotype-phenotype-fitness mapping, or the connection between genetic mutations and their effects on organismal fitness, lies at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution.
  (BBSRC DTP) Stress reactivity and social loss: the effects of adverse childhood experiences on neurobiology throughout the lifespan
  Dr N Muhlert, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are living in an ageing population. Roughly one in five people in the UK is aged over 65. As people live longer there is an increasing need to discover factors that promote healthy ageing.
  (BBSRC DTP) Uncovering the mechanism(s) responsible for a novel neurite co-orientation process
  Dr C Dobson, Prof Keith Crutcher, Dr T Brown, Prof R Baines
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do neurons decide where to grow? Although there is evidence for the role of growth factors (diffusible or bound) as well as electrical activity, the specific mechanism remains elusive.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding structure and function of the mechanosensors talin and vinculin
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof C Baldock, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of cells to sense biochemical and mechanical properties of their extracellular matrix (ECM) environment is critical for the development of functional tissue.
  (BHF Acc) Multi-parametric MR imaging of myocardial fibrosis, perfusion and oxygenation
  Dr J Naish, Dr Chris Miller, Prof T Cootes, Dr E Johnstone
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The BHF Manchester Centre for Heart and Lung Magnetic Resonance Research (MCMR) is a new £3.1M investment in cardiovascular MR (CMR) aimed at translating multidisciplinary research excellence in Manchester into cardiovascular patient benefit.
  Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials
  Dr V Liu, Dr L Swanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
