  The role and regulation of microtubules during axon growth and degeneration
  Prof A Prokop
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axons are the enormously long cable-like processes of neurons that wire the nervous system. These delicate structures have to be maintained for a life time.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do non-coding enhancer RNAs confer genetic risk in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
  Dr Dan Bose, Dr J Cooper-Knock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an aggressive neurodegenerative disease with no effective therapy. The established genetic causes of ALS can only explain a small fraction of the observed disease phenotypes.

  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating Cognitive Correlates of Circuit dysfunctions in Autism Spectrum Disorders
  Dr A Banerjee, Prof C Petkov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of early postnatal developmental disabilities with executive dysfunction as a key co-morbid feature.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mitochondrial DNA mutations in blood: Why do they decline?
  Dr S Pickett, Prof M Collins, Dr O Russell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial diseases are caused by mutations in nuclear and mitochondrial (mt) genomes and there is currently no cure for these debilitating disorders.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The role of circular RNAs in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease
  Dr M Jackson, Dr M Santibanez-Koref, Dr G Hudson, Dr O Izuogy
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK alone there are currently 145,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In an increasingly aged population, this number is rising, with on average 2 people every hour told that they have PD.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Towards specialised treatments for childhood-onset neurological diseases
  Dr C Schneider, Prof R Horvath
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegeneration is a feature of many debilitating, incurable diseases with underlying defects in RNA metabolism (e.g. spinal muscular atrophy, ALS), but the link between RNA biology and neuronal death is poorly understood.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Using wearable technology to identify activity and sleep patterns in inpatients with delirium and Parkinson’s disease
  Dr R Lawson, Dr S Del Din, Dr A Yarnall, Dr J Shi
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type
