  De Novo Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.

  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.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  3D bio-printing human pluripotent stem cell-derived skeletal muscle constructs for disease modelling and drug discovery
  Dr Y Y Lin, Dr J Connelly
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from highly motivated graduates with a BSc (First or Upper Second) or MSc (Distinction or Merit) from disciplines related to biomedical engineering, stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
  Developing nutritional guidelines for human breast milk bank donors
  Dr S Dyall, Dr Y Jeanes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Appropriate nutrition is particularly important for preterm infants, since their maternal nutrient supply has been prematurely interrupted.
  Novel statistical method development for discovery and interpretation of genetic contribution to human complex traits
  Dr V Iotchkova
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genetic and epidemiological research has generated a vast amount of data and expertise for evaluating the genetic contribution to human traits in health and disease.

  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.
  Genetic interrogation of virulence in Candida albicans; the major fungal pathogen of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is an opportunistic fungal pathogen that causes superficial and life-threatening infections in humans. During mucosal infection, C.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Translational Cardiovascular Research, Cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans
  Prof C Antoniades
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have established one of the world’s most extensively phenotyped cohorts of patients undergoing cardiac surgery, the Oxford Heart Vessels & Fat (ox-HVF) cohort.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
  Understanding differential responses to retinoid treatments in human health and disease: a precision medicine approach
  Prof R Watson, Dr A Langton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans retinoic acid (t-RA), are endogenous signalling molecules derived from vitamin A that influence a variety of cellular processes through mediation of transcription events in the cell nucleus.
