The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  How does cytokine signalling cause kidney hyperplasia?
  Dr M Fragiadaki, Prof J Sayers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common genetic kidney disorder, with more than 12 million people are affected worldwide.
  Identifying inhibitors specific to the OPG-kinome: towards novel treatments for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).
  Prof A Lawrie, Dr R Thompson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a fatal progressive disease. Median life expectancy in untreated PAH patients is 2.8 years.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Human fat distribution and metabolic disease: Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Prof F Karpe, Dr M Neville, Dr M Todorcevic, Dr K Pinnick
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identifying the mechanistic basis for site-specific fat storage to identify new ways of tackling the metabolic consequences of obesity.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Laboratory of Gene Regulation
  Prof D Higgs, Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory is interested in the general question of how mammalian genes are switched on and off during lineage commitment and differentiation.
  Megakaryocytes, platelets and Malignant Bone Marrow Fibro
  Dr B Psalia, Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group focuses on the biology of megakaryocyte cells - large, rare cells found in the bone marrow that release blood platelets into the circulation and also produce many growth factors and other proteins that regulate blood cell development and the bone marrow microenvironment.
