  Development of novel nitric oxide-releasing polymers for medical devices. Self funded Medical Studies PhD
  Prof P Winyard
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with the employment of urinary catheters and intravenous cannulae are a common cause of hospitalisation, illness and premature death (Chant et al 2011).
  Assessing the generalisability of trial findings using large orthopaedic population studies #NDORMS-2020/5
  Assoc Prof J Cook, Prof X Griffin, Assoc Prof B Ollivere
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Randomised trials (RCTs) are widely accepted as the preferred approach to evaluating health care interventions. However, the clinical relevance and generalisability of the findings are often disputed.
  Artificial intelligence and machine learning for clinical prediction: Evaluating design, conduct, reporting and 'spin' #NDORMS-2020/3
  Prof G Collins, Dr M Schlussel, Dr P Dhiman, Dr J de Beyer
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Professor Gary Collins. 2. Dr Michael Schlussel. 3. Dr Paula Dhiman. 4. Dr Jennifer de Beyer. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are increasingly seen as solutions to many healthcare problems (e.g., for risk prediction, imaging), and the pace of development is showing no signs abating.
  Inhibition of PRMT5 as a cancer therapy
  Dr K. Sheppard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Targeted therapy has had profound impact on outcomes for cancer patients.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells #NDORMS-2020/6
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  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.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
  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.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  Normal and Leukaemic Blood Stem/Progenitor Cell Biology
  Prof P Vyas, Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory studies the mechanisms regulating normal blood stem and progenitor cell differentiation and how these are perturbed in blood cancers such as Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS).
