  Elucidating the Role of Aging on Topoisomerase II Beta Expression and Repair in Neurones (Ref: SF20/APP/PADGET)
  Dr K Padget
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurons show high levels of metabolic activity which results in the production of high levels of oxidative stress. However this is counterbalanced by a robust repair system in these cells.
  Molecular characterisation of novel interactions of DNA repair proteins
  Dr A Povey, Prof G Margison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human exposure to alkylating agents is unavoidable through both exogenous sources and endogenous formation. Some of these compounds have been shown to be toxic and carcinogenic in animal models and some are known human carcinogens.
  Build your expertise in tissue regeneration and repair at The University of Edinburgh

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our MSc by Research in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue is a one-year, full-time, on-campus Masters programme structured around two laboratory-based research projects.
  Actin regulation of nuclear mechanics during DNA repair
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In eukaryotic cells, the nucleus houses the genomic material and transcription machinery that allows the cell to develop and perform its role.
  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: 6 April 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.
  Tissue engineering a patch to repair neural tube damage during in utero surgery for spina bifida
  Dr G Galea, Prof P De Coppi, Prof N Elvassore
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3-year PhD Studentship funded by National Institute for Health Research Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (NIHR GOSH BRC) is available within the Developmental Biology and Cancer programme at UCL GOS Institute of Child Health and within the ‘Advanced Treatments for Structural Malformation and Tissue Damage’ research theme within the GOSH BRC.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  Mechanisms of cell membranes repair in health and disease
  Dr B Ciani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation of chemical reactions and packaging of genetic material is fundamental for the healthy state of any biological cell.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Identification of biochemical changes linked to age-related hearing loss and their association with neurological disorders
  Prof W Marcotti, Prof S El-Khamisy
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) causes a progressive loss of hearing sensitivity, impaired sound localization and decreased ability to understand speech, especially in noisy environment (Gates & Mills, 2005 Lancet 366:1111).
  Targeting miR-29 in cutaneous wounds
  Dr S Kurinna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of efficient strategies for the improvement of wound repair requires understanding of the mechanisms underlying normal and impaired healing.
  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  A multiple modality approach for targeting treatment-resistant ovarian cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70% of ovarian cancer (OvCa) deaths and its five-year survival rate is 43%.
  Using novel materials to engineer an artifical bone-tendon replacement
  Dr J Paxton
Application Deadline: 24 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
