Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Development and validation of novel MRI methods using preclinical models of disease.
  Research Group: Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology
  Dr W Holmes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. At Glasgow’s Experimental MRI Centre we are interested in pushing the boundaries of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and its application to biomedical research.
  Understanding the development of fluoroquinolone (FQ) resistance in Campylobacter present in broilers and the risks of FQ resistance persisting through the food-chain to cause disease in people (UDOFRIC)
  Prof N McCarthy, Dr J Rodgers, Dr I Kempf
Application Deadline: 9 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Warwick in partnership with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) and the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in March 2020.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Examining Histoplasmosis in household and community environments at the human-animal interface
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr G Pinchbeck, Dr D Wooton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Little is known about the current prevalence or transmission of Histoplasmosis despite its persistence in Sub-Saharan Africa, representing a public health blind spot (Oladele et al., 2018).
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Determining how immune responses are regulated at mucosal surfaces
  Dr M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
