  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease

  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.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

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.
  Mechanisms of neuronal protection in diabetic neuropathy.
  Dr L Donaldson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to damage. This is now most commonly found in diabetes mellitus where hyperglycaemia results in the production of several factors (e.g.
  Identification of novel combinations of analgesic drugs for an efficient and safe pain relief.
  Dr M Nassar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pain is an important warning system to guard against tissue damage. Pathological pain, however, has no warning value and has huge economical, social and personal costs on society.
  Investigating the effectiveness of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in reducing type 2 diabetes induced peripheral neuropathy and pain.
  Dr M Nassar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Diabetes is a serious health issue in developed and developing countries. About 415 million adults have diabetes, a number that is estimated to increase by 50% in 20 years.
  Regulation of SNARE complex assembly and function by the lysine deacetylase Sirtuin-2
  Dr M Collins, Dr A Peden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sirtuin-2 (Sirt2) is a lysine deacetylase that regulates acetylation levels of cytoplasmic proteins and has established roles in neurodegeneration, cancer and infection.
  Regulation of synaptic protein function by protein palmitoylation
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels

  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
