  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  The Role of Microglia-released microRNA in the Pathology of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; motor neuron disease)
  Prof M Hafezparast
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by the Motor Neurone Disease Association to study the link between microglia-derived microRNA (miRNA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the leading form of motor neuron disease, but the exact mechanisms that underlie its pathology are not well understood.
  Use of electroencephalography for the discovery of a functional marker of MCI converting to dementia. The AlzSM project.
  Dr F Tamagnini, Prof G J Stephens, Dr G Stothart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia is the main chronic disease leading to disability amongst the elder population worldwide and it currently represents a healthcare emergency at a global level.
  The impact of zinc deficiency on Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr C Lawrence, Prof D Brough
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to memory problems, people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) also experience ‘non-memory’ behavioural symptoms including depression, anxiety, and agitation.
  Alzheimer’s Society funded PhD studentship: how Alzheimer’s disease associated neuroinflammation is altered in Down Syndrome
  Dr F Wiseman
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in the UK Dementia Research Institute at UCL, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, to start 28th September 2020.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
