  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Investigation of long-range connectopathies in autism spectrum disorders using high-throughput single cell projection mapping and 3D imaging
  Dr G Surmeli, Dr M H Henning, Dr I Simpson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Autism is a disorder of dispersed brain networks rather than a problem localized to an individual brain area. Human brain imaging studies provide evidence for abnormal long-range connectivity and a lack of coordinated activity between key nodes of dispersed brain networks.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The in situ 3D molecular structure of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology by cryo-electron microscopy
  Dr R Frank, Prof S E Radford, Dr E W Hewitt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synapses are the microprocessors of the mind that encode and store memories. In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synapses are damaged by the constituents of abnormal beta-amyloid plaques that accumulate in the brain.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does mitochondrial morphology change in neurons with age and disease?
  Dr A Reeve, Dr C Racca, Dr A Vincent
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are fundamental to the function of our neurons, and defects in the function of this important organelle are found in several neurodegenerative disorders, as well as in normal ageing.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP studentship: Analysis of tissue remodelling and lipid metabolism in glioblastoma cancer stem cells using advanced chemically- and mechanically-sensitive optical microscopy
  Dr F Siebzehnrubl, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal adult brain cancer. High patient mortality is partly attributed to glioblastoma cancer stem cells causing recurrence of therapy-resistant tumours.
  International PhD Programme in Biomedical Sciences Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Barcelona

Funding Type

PhD Type

Apply now to boost your scientific career in a center of excellence, backed by first class core facilities and a broad training portfolio in our multidisciplinary, international community.
  Identifying the role of glycosaminoglycans and microglia in early pathology of mucopolysaccharide diseases
  Dr B BIgger, Dr R Holley, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Novel Diagnostics for Stress and Neuroendocrine Disorders
  Dr N Reis
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
