  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  Regulating Shedding of Syndecan-3: A Novel Approach to Combat Bone Ageing
  Prof R van ‘t Hof, Dr K Yamamoto, Dr A Daroszewska
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is associated with bone loss, osteoporosis and fragility fractures, which impact on health and quality of life. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying age-related bone loss are currently largely unknown.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Effects of essential aminoacid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function, ageing and neurodegeneration.
  Prof B Platt, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, and type 2 diabetes in our aged population.
  Role of telomere attrition in pancreatic beta cell dysfunction
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex condition caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors. The risk of developing T2D is also strongly influenced by increasing age.
  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").
  Dr E Kunji
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

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.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Development of targeted therapy for acute myeloid leukaemia with mutations in isocitrate dehysdrogenase
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is an aggressive disease with poor prognosis and development of novel treatment options is urgently needed.
  Impact of alternative mRNA splicing on the human proteome
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alternative splicing of RNA transcripts has emerged as a key mechanism for enabling biological complexity within the human genome.
  Investigating the Drosophila DF31 protein to gain insight into the mechanisms and chromatin maintenance in animal cells
  Dr S Cotterill, Dr A Nohturfft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Drosophila DF31 protein is an abundant ribonucleoprotein that localises to euchromatic regions and is involved in maintaining chromosome structure.
