  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction
  Dr A Kitmitto, Dr E Cartwright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.
  Investigation of mechanisms of neuroprotective oxidative stress response induction by mesenchymal stem cell extracellular vesicles using human pluripotent stem cell resources
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr P De Sousa, Dr T Wishart
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult-tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and derivative extracellular vesicles (EV) attenuate neuroinflammation, and elicit neuroprotective oxidative stress response in animal and cell models of neurodegenerative diseases and injury.
  Investigation of the contribution of redox stress to the therapy resistance of cells experiencing cycling oxygen levels
  Prof E Hammond, Dr S Conway
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Hypoxia is a major barrier to successful cancer treatment as the more hypoxic a tumour, the less well patients respond.
  Investigation of DNA/RNA Instability in Neurological Disease
  Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr G Hautbergue, Dr F Van Eeden
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genome is constantly threatened by environmental and endogenous stressors. One consequence of this threat is the formation of the rather unusual nucleic acid structures involving a duplex DNA and RNA, called DNA/RNA hybrids (R-loops).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Investigation of the capacity of a diet rich in lutein and zeaxanthin to increase macular pigment density, thereby potentially reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration by dietary means.
  Prof M Rayman, Prof J Woodside, Dr J Brown
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Research question. Can consuming a healthy plant food, rich in protective macular pigments, be a lifestyle strategy that has the potential to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?.
  Non-invasive Mapping of Oxygen Extraction Fraction in Patients with Breast Cancer: Development of Novel Multi-Parametric Relaxometry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Methods
  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  Telomere length elongation following treatment with chemotherapeutic drugs. Aim: To investigate the mechanisms which leads to telomere length elongation after treatment with tricostatin A and azacytidine.
  Dr T Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are specialised structures, which are present at the ends of chromosomes and serve to protect the chromosome from degradation during cell division.

Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The position is part of the Innovative Training Network (ITN) “PROTON”. The network is devoted to the investigation of proton transport and proton-coupled transport.
  The impact of peri-operative analgesia on neuropharmacological outcomes in rodent models of chronic pain
  Dr K Bannister
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available in Dr Kirsty Bannister’s Descending Modulation of Pain Group, King’s College London. The project aim is to research the impact of peri-operative analgesia on rodent neuropharmacological modulation with a specific focus.
