  An improved C. elegans model of Alzheimer’s Disease to monitor neuronal signalling activity
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen, Dr S Clapcote
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most common form of neurodegenerative diseases known today, affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
  Investigation of molecular mechanisms of Intellectual disability using human-brain organoids
  Dr E Kang, Dr D Berg
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intellectual disability (ID) is a condition characterized by significant limitation in cognitive ability and adaptive behaviours with a disease onset before adulthood.
  The effect of anaesthetic neurotoxicity on the development of adult neural stem cells
  Dr D Berg, Dr E Kang
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although most neurons in the mammalian brain are generated during development, certain areas possess the capacity to generate new neurons throughout life.
  The potential of elevating Epac2 to modulate glial activation and promote motor neuron regeneration in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  Dr W Huang, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease characterised by the selective degeneration and death of motor neurons.
  What is the role of opioids in postoperative pain?
  Prof P Forget, Prof G Macfarlane
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question seems trivial but remains largely unresolved. The present project aims to address the question using different approaches.
  Combining omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid and melatonin to manage spinal cord injury-induced central neuropathic pain.
  Dr W Huang, Prof H Galley
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

About half of spinal injury patients develop neuropathic pain, which is driven by neuroinflammation, has no effective treatments, and impacts significantly on daily functioning.
  Self-Portraits: Visualising the Bodily Self-Representation
  Dr L Maister
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For many centuries, humanity has had a deep fascination with the way in which people depict themselves, as evidenced by the long-running practice of creating self-portraits.
  Neuronal activity in circuit development
  Dr L Andreae
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations in synaptic genes are strongly associated with neurodevelopmental disorders. This project will focus on the role of NMDA receptors, many subunits of which have been implicated in autism and epilepsy.
