  Flavonoid metabolism and cardiometabolic health
  Prof A Cassidy, Prof J Woodside
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Nutrition and reduction in risk of ill-health is currently centre stage globally, and the recent launch of the EAT-Lancet report showcased that food represents one of the greatest health and environmental challenges of the 21st century and highlighted the urgent need to focus on a high plant food diet.
  Genome scale evolution of biofilm contained Klebsiella pneumoniae in response to sub-lethal antibacterial stress exposure - development of novel biomarkers for near-patient testing
  Prof S Fanning, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogenic bacterium found in several niches, being often encountered in a biofilm.
  Investigating how the levels of queuine, a novel micronutrient, are associated with human ageing and brain health
  Dr B Green, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Queuine is the only micronutrient that directly affects translation efficiency and accuracy in eukaryotes, with roles in metabolism and healthy-aging of the brain.
  Mast cell dysregulation? Understanding the development of mastocytosis
  Dr C Graham, Dr B Graham, Prof C Creevey
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Mastocytosis is a myeloproliferative disease characterised by the accumulation of neoplastic mast cells in one or several organs that can result in organ failure.
  MicroRNAs in the Pathogenesis Adverse Cardiomyocyte and Endothelial Cell Remodelling in Insulin Resistance
  Dr Q Su, Dr D Grieve
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Lipogenic diets-induced diabetes increases risk of cardiac stress and vascular dysfunction. Recent studies have established the pivotal role of non-coding microRNAs in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
  The role of epigenetic mechanisms in the control of post-stress recovery of cancer cells
  Dr K Panov, Dr S McDade, Dr B Graham
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. In recent years, it has become apparent that epigenetic mechanisms play an important role in the cellular response to stress; however, exact mechanisms involved are still poorly understood despite continued efforts.
  Airway epithelium and respiratory syncytial virus – effect of developmental age on responses to infection
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr U Power, Dr G Lopez-Campos, Dr H Groves
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the principle cause of severe lower respiratory tract disease in young infants, including bronchiolitis and pneumonia.
  Circadian clocks in diabetes – implications for diabetic macular oedema
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr E Beli, Prof A Stitt
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will characterise circadian arrhythmicity in a model of type 1 diabetes. There is a direct link between metabolism and the transcriptional/post-translational feedback loop of the circadian clock and evidence that circadian arrhythmicity promotes development of diabetes.
  Developing an injury surveillance system in road cycling in order to design and implement injury prevention programmes.
  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
  Dr N Heron, Prof M Donnelly, Dr C Cardwell
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in public health and road cycling? Come and work with Dr Neil Heron, Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine (in the Centre for Public Health at QUB), and Team Ineos to develop an injury surveillance system for elite road cycling and design and evaluate injury prevention programmes for elite cyclists.
  Development of LSD1 (KDM1a)/CoREST Targeting Strategies for the Treatment of Poor Prognosis Cancers
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr R Williams, Dr P Mullan
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship will provide experience in both a medicinal chemistry and cancer biology lab. It will provide excellent training across a range of skills and create an excellent platform for a cutting edge academic research career.
