  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.
  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.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Investigating phenotypic, proteomic and functional changes in microglia in a preclinical model for sporadic Alzheimer’s disease research (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr M Harte, Dr A Tirella
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are symptomatic and do little to slow down the progression of the disease. This has led to an array of research investigating hallmark pathologies in the search for novel therapeutic strategies.
  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.

  Molecular regulation of neurogenesis in the adult subventricular zone – a novel FGF joins the affray (HAJIHOSSEINIMU20SCIO)
  Dr M Hajihosseini, Dr M M Mogensen
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a resurgent interest in Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signaling as key regulators of stem cells and neurogenesis in the adult brain.
  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.
  Mapping neuromodulator networks in real-time in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans
  Dr Y L Chew
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DEADLINE EXTENDED!. Background and Aims. Much of the efforts to identify neuronal connections and map the ‘connectome’ of the nervous system focuses on synaptic connections between neurons.
