  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.
  Circadian clocks in diabetes – implications for diabetic macular oedema
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr E Beli, Prof A Stitt
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will characterise circadian arrhythmicity in a model of type 1 diabetes. There is a direct link between metabolism and the transcriptional/post-translational feedback loop of the circadian clock and evidence that circadian arrhythmicity promotes development of diabetes.
