  Dissecting the mechanisms underlying sleep disturbances in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
  Investigating the role of the FGF pathway in gene regulation during early amphibian development.
  Dr H V Isaacs, Dr M E Pownall
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signalling pathway plays critical roles in regulating cell lineage during normal development and stem cell differentiation in culture.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Modulating cell signalling regulates morphogenesis of the developing nervous system
  Dr M E Pownall, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors such as FGFs and Wnts are important signalling molecules that regulate development and are also known to cause disease when they go wrong.
  Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?
  Dr G Evans, Dr S Chawla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections.
  The role of DNA methylation on neuronal activity in health and disease
  Dr D Goffin, Prof M Whittington
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite identical genetic sequences, neurones are highly divergent with distinct locations, morphology, connectivity, electrophysiology and transcriptional profiles.
