  Assessing convergence in models of ASD: Physiology and behaviour in 16p11.2 deletion rats
  Dr D J A Wyllie, Dr P Kind, Dr E Wood
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Code. 2020-SIDB-11. The 16p11.2. microdeletion in humans which leads to the loss of expression of approximately 21 genes occurs with a prevalence of about 3 in 10,000 individuals and is one of the most common copy number variants that gives rise to intellectual disability (ID) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
  Understanding cellular and network mechanisms underlying memory dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr S Wang, Prof S Grant
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Memory impairment is among the early signs in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) that significantly affects daily function. It is vital to understand how neurons encoding memory (i.e.
  Identifying mistranslating mRNAs in specific neural circuits of mouse models of autism
  Dr E Osterweil, Dr C Sibley
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Code. 2020-SIDB-05. Aberrant neuronal protein synthesis is a point of convergence for multiple genetic causes of autism.
  Role of CAF metabolism in ovarian cancer
  Dr S Zanivan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High grade serous (HGS) ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological disease. While initial response to treatment is promising, the majority of patients develop resistance to chemotherapy.
  Investigating the role of pannexin 1 in the development of pulmonary hypertension
  Dr Y Dempsie, Dr P Martin, Dr D Welsh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19003. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease, associated with both constriction and abnormal proliferation of cells in the pulmonary vasculature, leading to narrowing of the arteries and increased pulmonary arterial pressures.
  Using zebrafish to model Facioscapulohumeral muscle dystrophy and screen for drugs to enhance muscle stem cell health
  Dr R Knight, Dr P Zammit
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) is the 3rd most common muscle dystrophy leading to progressive muscle weakness of facial, shoulder and limb muscles and so impairing quality of life.
  Imaging cortical codes for learning and memory in models of autism spectrum disorders
  Dr G Surmeli, Dr E Wood, Prof M Nolan
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Code. 2020-SIDB-09. How do cortical codes for associative learning and memory change in rodent models of autism spectrum disorders? Experiments will test the overarching hypothesis that memory deficits in ASD is a result of disruptions in hippocampus mediated encoding of neocortical memory.
  Novel Camera Technology for Imaging of Cell Collectives - Start date: 1st October 2019
  Prof D Faccio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Glasgow (UofG) is home to world-leading research in the fields of imaging and computing science. UofG is also home to the UK Hub for Quantum Imaging Technologies, QuantIC (https://quantic.ac.uk/) who are co-funding this PhD research project in collaboration with a Horiba.
  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
