  International PhD Academy: Medical Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our vision is to impact locally, nationally and globally on biomedical and clinical research with a primary emphasis on health outcomes.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  Development and characterisation of synthetic ion channel binding proteins.
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr D Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are developing methods to identify novel proteins, Affimers, that recognise extracellular domains of ion channels. These have applications in various aspects of biology, from tools to visualise the location and distribution of ion channels in native tissue, to novel modulators of ion channel function.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Identifying cardiac disease markers using non-lethal ’biopsy’ of cells.
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr A.J. Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on our recent exciting discovery that a novel chemical tool, the polymer styrene maleic acid (SMA), can ‘biopsy’ human vascular cells, extracting proteins from the membrane without killing the cells.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Medical Diagnosis and Care

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on the Leeds distinctive strength, depth and international excellence in multi-modal AI, and medical diagnosis and care, we will train cohorts of researchers equipped with the necessary skills to unlock the immense potential of AI within the health domain.
  Characterisation of a pre-osteoblast subset of human mesenchymal stem cells: implications for novel osteoarthritis and osteoporosis treatment development
  Dr E Jones, Prof D McGonagle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP) are the most common age-related skeletal diseases. They seriously affect patient’s quality of life and represent a significant healthcare burden to the UK society.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Enhancing Oncolytic Virus-induced Immunotherapy using Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
  Dr F Errington-Mais, Dr MA Volpato
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) having the worst prognosis, highest death rate and lowest overall survival.
