  Molecular Pharmacology of N-Methyl-D-aspartate glutamate receptors
  Dr P Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fast neuronal communication at synaptic contacts relies on neurotransmitter release from the presynaptic terminal and the majority of excitatory neurotransmission within the mammalian central nervous system is mediated by the neurotransmitter glutamate.
  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  11 PhD Positions on "Adipocyte-Brain Crosstalk" in Obesity/Neuroscience/Metabolism Research at University of Lübeck, Germany

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DFG-funded Graduiertenkolleg 1957 studies the effects of adipose tissue hormones on CNS function and, in turn, the control of adipose tissue physiology by the brain.
  Mass spectrometric imaging of biological tissues
  Prof J Preisler, Ms M Machalkova
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) exploits the ability of mass spectrometry to identify molecules according to their specific mass and image their distribution across the sample.
  Join a new graduate school at the interface of biology and computation: IMPRS-BAC in Berlin

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for outstanding graduates from all over the world - whether you have a degree in bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, molecular biology or something related, as long as you have a passion for solving biological questions through computational methods, the IMPRS-CBSC may be the PhD program for you.
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction
  Dr A Kitmitto, Dr E Cartwright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease.
  Therapeutic resolution of Myodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are the most common adult myeloid malignancy in the UK and it has been estimated that around 8,000 and 40,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the UK and USA, respectively.
  Extracellular Matrix Abnormalities in Cardiac Insulin Resistance as a Therapeutic Target of Chronic Heart Failure
  Dr L Kang, Prof C Lang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Description. Diabetes and chronic heart failure (CHF) often coexist such that each condition may affect the other in terms of causation and outcome.
  How does the vascular matrix environment influence platelet activation?
  Dr S Calaminus
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The platelet is a blood cell that plays a key role in the prevention of bleeding. For platelets to form a clot or thrombus effectively, they must rearrange their actin cytoskeleton to withstand high shear stress from blood flow in the arteries.
  Identification of novel glucose-dependent alterations responsible for vascular dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr R Sturmey
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a growing global healthcare problem. The majority of people living with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), characterised by a resistance of the body to the action of insulin.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  Precision-cut lung slices to investigate the effect of human rhinovirus on cough and airway inflammation
  Dr L Sadofsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human Rhinovirus (RV) is the major cause of the common cold. There are no current treatments or vaccines for the virus other than over the counter preparations to alleviate symptoms.
