  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Regulation of stem cell biology by RNA-binding proteins during fly development
  Dr S Lopez de Quinto, Prof H White-Cooper
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although transcription is the first step in eukaryotic gene expression, many post-transcriptional events determine the final fate of RNA molecules and impose additional complexity to gene expression.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Jellyfish-collagen hydrogels for culture and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells and 3D cartilage bioprinting
  Dr J Bella, Dr S Richardson, Dr M Domingos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented graduate from a relevant biomedical or materials science degree to develop next-generation, sustainable collagen-based scaffolds for stem cell culture, differentiation, and 3D bioprinting, aimed at tissue regeneration applications.
  (BBSRC DTP) Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental unknown in understanding mechanisms of disease, and therefore improving therapy, is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  (BHF Acc) Injectable iPSC-cardiomyocyte/peptide hydrogel composites for cardiac repair
  Dr E Cartwright, Dr D Oceandy, Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

iPSC-based cell therapies have shown promise in regeneration of the heart following MI1.
  Is there a switch between prostamides and prostaglandins in women with dysmenorrhoea and heavy menstrual bleeding?
  Prof K Marshall, Dr D Fischer, Prof A Nicolaou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysmenorrhoea, painful menstrual cramps, and heavy menstrual bleeding are common debilitating symptoms in women with or without an underlying pelvic pathology.
  The role of the microenvironment in regulating breast cancer metastatic colonisation
  Dr R Clarke, Dr Ciara O'Brien, Dr R Eyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The metastatic spread of breast cancer cells and their colonisation of important organs is the cause of death in 95% of breast cancer.
  The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development
  Dr K Hentges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated.

The laminins are a family of proteins that make up part of specialised regions of extracellular matrix termed basement membranes.
  The biology of vascular macrophages #MRC1
  Prof C Monaco
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macrophages have a key role in health and disease, by supporting organ function and immune responses to damage and disease (1). In homeostasis, ontogeny and organ-specific signals influence the phenotype and function of macrophages by activation of specific transcription factors.
