  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Novel cardioprotective signalling pathways against stress-induced cardiac damage and heart failure
  Dr N Chong
Application Deadline: 22 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the world’s single biggest killer causing 1 in 3 deaths. Drug-induced cardiac damage (e.g. arrhythmias, cardiac hypertrophy, and heart failure) is also a major global issue in drug treatment of chronic disorders (e.g.
  Combining melatonin and omega-3 fatty acids to manage chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and spinal injury-induced neuropathic pain.
  Prof H Galley, Dr W Huang
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and debilitating complication during cancer treatment, which can lead to chemotherapy drug dose reduction or treatment cessation.
  The role of FOXO1 in obesity-driven protection in cardiac surgery
  Prof G Murphy, Dr S Yusoff, Dr M Woźniak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD student will work as part of the BHF funded Cardiac Surgery Research Group, the largest cardiac surgery research group in the UK.
  Effects of essential aminoacid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function, ageing and neurodegeneration.
  Prof B Platt, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, and type 2 diabetes in our aged population.
  Repairing DNA Damage in Response to BRAF Mutation
  Dr C McCabe, Prof G Stewart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

We are the leading thyroid cancer research group in the UK; we work on other neoplasias as well, including breast and head and neck etc.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  High mannose exposure on blood cells and development of new therapeutic modalities for sickle cell disease and cancer.
  Prof M A Vickers, Dr H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When cells reach the end of their lives, often induced by oxidative damage, they display eat me signals to macrophages. Several such signals have been described, but it is widely believed others are yet to be discovered.
  Multitasking abilities – Are computerised laboratory tasks predictive of real-world tasks?
  Dr A Szameitat, Dr A Parton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multitasking, i.e. the concurrent performance of two or more tasks, has been investigated in many different domains. In Cognitive Psychology, experimental paradigms such as the task switching paradigm or the dual-task paradigm of the Psychological Refractory Period (PRP) are the most widely used multitasking paradigms.
