Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stroke is the commonest cause of disability, second largest cause of dementia and the third biggest cause of death in the UK. However, by 2050 the World Health Organisation has estimated that 80% of the worlds’ burden of stroke will lie between India and China.
  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.
  PhD Studentship: Immune basis of neurologic function and circuitry
  Dr S Hong
Application Deadline: 5 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship in the UK Dementia Research Institute at UCL, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, to start 1st October 2019.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
