  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key pathological hallmark of synucleopathies, including Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is the formation of cytotoxic alpha-synuclein and gamma-synuclein aggregates respectively, that lead to neuronal cell death.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  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.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Analyzing network formation during brain tumour initiation
  Dr D Sieger, Prof P Uhlén
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. High grade brain tumours (HGBTs) represent a complex and devastating disease and are posing an unmet clinical need. These tumours resist multi-modal therapies and survival times are only 15 months on average.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Data Science approaches to investigating the vascular footprint of Alzheimer’s disease for early disease detection
  Dr M Bernabeu, Dr T MacGillivray, Prof C Ritchie, Prof B Dhillon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Changes in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are thought to start decades before cognitive symptoms emerge.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Harnessing plasticity to repair spinal cord injury
  Dr T Becker, Prof C G Becker, Prof A El Manira
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. After a spinal cord injury in the zebrafish, lost neurons are replaced and axonal connections re-established (Tsarouchas et al., 2018).
  Precision Medicine DTP - Investigation of long-range connectopathies in autism spectrum disorders using high-throughput single cell projection mapping and 3D imaging
  Dr G Surmeli, Dr M H Henning, Dr I Simpson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Autism is a disorder of dispersed brain networks rather than a problem localized to an individual brain area. Human brain imaging studies provide evidence for abnormal long-range connectivity and a lack of coordinated activity between key nodes of dispersed brain networks.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Understanding the neurobiological basis of co-morbid chronic pain and depression by integrating genomics, peripheral biomarkers and neuroimaging data
  Research Group: Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences
  Dr H Whalley, Prof M Fallon, Dr D Smith, Dr T-K Clarke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic pain is a major public health problem affecting one fifth of the general population(1). Major depressive disorder (MDD) is also a major health concern and is now the leading cause of disability worldwide(2).
  Precision Medicine DTP – Using Omics to Understand the Genes and Pathways Underlying Alcohol Use Disorder
  Research Group: Centre of Genomic and Experimental Medicine
  Dr K Evans, Dr T-K Clarke, Dr S Glerup
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a chronic relapsing brain disease characterised by compulsive alcohol use, loss of control over alcohol intake, and a negative emotional state when not using alcohol.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Time-resolved single-cell analysis of neural cell differentiation in motor neuron disease (MND)
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr C Sibley, Dr R Grima
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Motor neuron disease (MND) is a relentlessly progressing and devastating condition caused by the selective degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons essential for all movement.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: A Bayesian Modeling and rt-fMRI Neurofeedback Approach to Understanding Autism and Predictive Coding in the Insula
  Research Group: Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology
  Dr R Krishnadas, Prof F Pollick
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Rajeev Krishnadas. Prof Frank E Pollick. Dr Peggy Seriès. Project summary. A Bayesian approach to disorders has become increasingly popular.

Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Prof Andrew Smith. Dr Claire Cameron. Prof Martin Maiden. Project summary. This project will focus on meningococcal disease which is a severe and potentially fatal infection of the brain and blood stream with highest incidence in teenagers and young children.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Developing non-invasive transcranial neuro-stimulation into a precision tool for cognitive enhancement in Schizophrenia using multi-modal neuroimaging
  Research Group: Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology
  Prof G Thut, Dr P Uhlhaas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Prof Gregor Thut. Prof Peter Uhlhaas. Project summary. Impairments in cognitive processes in Schizophrenia (ScZ) constitute a fundamental aspect of the disorder and encompass both basic perceptual and higher cognitive functions.
