  Wiring and transmission specificity of serotonin system in the brain
  Dr J Ren
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The serotonin (5HT) system is the most frequently targeted neural system pharmacologically for treating psychiatric disorders, including depression and anxiety.
  Elucidating the interplay between mitochondrial dynamics, organelle contact sites and metabolic (re)programming (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr J Prudent
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria house hundreds of biochemical reactions involved in processes critical for the survival and homeostatic adaptation of the cell.
  Mitochondrial calcium in neurodegeneration (PhD in Biological Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit)
  Dr A J Whitworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial calcium plays a key role in a wide array of cellular homeostatic processes as diverse as bioenergetics and cell death, and has been linked to disease conditions as varied as cancer, ischemia-reperfusion injury and neurodegeneration (1-3).
  Regulation of mitochondrial gene expression (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr M Minczuk
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
  Role and mechanism of mitochondrial transport proteins (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof E Kunji
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are central to the utilization of sugars and fat by the eukaryotic cell in order to synthesise ATP via oxidative phosphorylation.
  Targeting molecules to mitochondria, mitochondrial radical production, thiol redox state and redox signalling (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof M Murphy
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Targeting molecules to mitochondria. Bioactive molecules can be targeted to mitochondria within cells by linking them to lipophilic cations.
  The mechanism, function, and medically-relevant dysfunction of mitochondrial complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof J Hirst
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) catalyses the first step in the respiratory chain and oxidative phosphorylation. NADH oxidation and quinone reduction, coupled to proton translocation across the inner membrane.
  Accounting for heterogeneity in network neuroscience: extending the Bayesian Exponential Random Graph Model to infer and identify group differences
  Dr S White, Dr B Tom, Dr B Lehmann
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Network Neuroscience is the study of the structure and function of the brain through the lens of networks and network constructs [1,2].
  Bayesian dose adaptive trials using non-myopic response-adaptive methods
  Dr S Villar, Dr D Roberston
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In dose-finding studies, the aim is to find the maximum tolerated dose of an agent or to find a dose which is closest to a target.
  Clinical prediction under informative presence: Exploring what the patterns and timing of repeated observations in routinely collected data can tell us about disease risk.
  Dr J Barrett, Dr B Tom
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an era of increasingly large data, the use of routinely collected healthcare data for medical research is becoming more common, particularly in the area of risk prediction/prognosis research.
