  Convergent molecular mechanisms of autism resulting from mis-processing of RNA-binding proteins
  Dr C Sibley, Dr J Mason, Dr A Cardona-Alberich
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Code. 2020-SIDB-07. Autism has a wide variety of potential genetic causes. However, afflicted individuals share common gene expression signatures to suggest converging mechanisms and disease drivers are involved.
  Towards personalised coronary artery disease consideration using medical image processing and computational modelling
  Dr S Beier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is highly interdisciplinary, and will involve working with (and extending) a suite of existing software and computational models based on clinical imaging data.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  Single-molecule fluorescence-activated cell sorting (smFACS): sorting cells molecule by molecule
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Ponjavic
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

This project will develop a novel microfluidic device that can characterise and sort cells, with unprecedented (single-molecule) sensitivity.
  Phenotyping placental disease in women with diabetes and chronic hypertension using transcriptomic analysis
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Placental disease triggers medically-indicated preterm birth in 1 in 6 pregnancies complicated by chronic hypertension and/or diabetes (cardiometabolic disease).
  BBSRC MIBTP: Transcriptional regulators of gene expression in human cells
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to uncover novel roles for transcriptional factors and to investigate how mRNA processing alters gene expression in human cells.

  Machine Learning Methods for Behaviour Analysis in Cardiovascular Disease
  Prof T Chico, Prof L Mihaylova
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases affect patient’s day-to-day activities by causing symptoms such as breathlessness on exertion but there is no effective way to measure this.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Development of ex vivo tissue culture models for developing next-generation biomaterial scaffolds for acellular regenerative medicine.
  Prof I Gibson, Prof N Vargesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone repair and regeneration can be influenced by various guidance cues, including pharmacological cues, hypoxia environment and chemical cues released from scaffolds [1-3].
  Getting to grips with severe asthma - a whole population approach using routinely acquired data.
  Prof S Turner, Dr D Miller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are 500,000 people in Scotland who have asthma. Asthma symptoms range from mild through moderate to severe. Severe asthma is not common but since it is associated with morbidity and mortality, severe asthma is a considerable burden to patients, society and the NHS.
  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
Applications accepted all year round

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.
