  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Massively parallel characterisation and experimental validation of viral microRNAs (MOXONU20DTP)
  Dr S Moxon, Prof T Dalmay
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding RNAs ~22nt in length known to play a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression in animals.
  (MRC DTP) The role of complement in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr R Unwin, Dr S Clark, Dr C Lawrence
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has grown to be the leading cause of death in the UK, and yet it stands alone amongst the UKs biggest killers as having no disease-modifying treatment.
  Precision Medicine DTP - 3D Modeling of Changes in Genome Architecture in Development and Disease
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof E Schirmer, Dr D Marenduzzo
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Defects in spatial genome organisation have recently been linked to human disease and the National Institutes of Health, USA director speculated that most as yet unidentified disease alleles will occur in non-coding genome regions.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
