PhD in Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism

We offer multiple self funded PhD positions in Diabetes Endocrinology and Metabolism at the Academic Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (ADEM) based at Allam Diabetes Centre. Read more

Multimodal imaging of brain metabolism in humans in vivo

The overall goal of this PhD thesis is the integration of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)1 with arterial spin labelling (ASL) perfusion MRI2 and quantitative BOLD MRI3 for a comprehensive assessment of oxygen metabolism in the healthy brain at baseline. Read more

Mechanistic computational modelling of human glioblastoma metabolism

Glioblastoma is the most common and the most lethal malignant brain tumor. In vitro cell culture of glioma cells is essential for the discovery and development of novel anticancer treatments. Read more

A role for cholesterol metabolism in neurodevelopmental disorder

Microdeletions and duplications of the chromosome 15q11.2 region have been identified as a high penetrant risk copy number variance (CNV) to autism and schizophrenia. CYFIP1 (Cytoplasmic FMR1-interacting protein 1) is generally believed to be the causal risk gene in this CNV. Read more

Precision Nutrition: Improving human health by monitoring physiology and metabolism

  Research Group: Centre for Nutrition, Exercise and Metabolism
Overview. This programme of doctoral training will explore the broad area of ‘personalised nutrition’ by integrating various physiological measurements. Read more

Polmorphisms in cytosolic drug metabolising enzymes: a combined proteomics and modelling approach to clinical impact

Cytosolic drug metabolising enzymes such as aldehyde oxidase play a pivotal role in metabolism of drugs. However, research into cytosolic enzymes has been relatively neglected in comparison with membrane bound enzymes such as cytochrome P450 (CYP) and uridine 5’-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs).

Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism. Read more

Circadian clock control of adipocyte metabolism

Obesity is a major public health issue affecting one third of UK adults, and an estimated 2.1 billion individuals worldwide. The role of circadian clock dysfunction in the development of obesity is becoming clear, with disruptive lifestyles (e.g. Read more

12 fully funded Ph.D. positions at the Cologne Graduate School of Ageing Research

The Cologne Graduate School of Ageing Research (CGA) in Germany is a joint venture of the University of Excellence Cluster on Stress Responses in Aging-Associated Diseases (CECAD), the University and University Hospital Cologne, the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing and the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research.

Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more
