  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  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.
  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.
  Characterisation of the neuronal receptor for soluble amyloid precursor protein: a route to new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof N Hooper, Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the commonest form of dementia for which currently there is no means of stopping or even slowing the disease.
  Endoplasmic Reticulum Transport and Morphoregulation in Neuron (Patho) Physiology
  Dr E Avezov
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) is a multifunctional organelle, shaped as a contiguous network of membranous pipes extending throughout the cell periphery.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  Therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cerebellar ataxias and tremors
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebellar ataxias and tremor are devastating movement disorders that often begin early in life and for which there is no cure.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
