  (A*STAR) Mapping changes in hippocampal-prefrontal neuronal function and behaviour in the 3xTg mouse model for Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr J Gigg, Dr J Turner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research using mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has focussed predominantly on deficits in hippocampal formation (HIP)-dependent behaviour and synaptic function.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Identification of cell types and subtypes within tissues by mass spectrometry imaging
  Dr A McMahon, Prof K Williams, Dr N Thacker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will bring together the capabilities of the University’s Imaging research group, and the extensive mass spectrometry imaging facilities of the Medicine Discovery Catapult at Alderley Park, at Waters at their Wilmslow site and using a DESI-imaging mass spectrometer, placed by Waters, at the University.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) Cytoskeletal re-arrangements leading to correct neuron polarisation during vertebrate CNS development
  Dr R Das, Prof V Allan, Dr S Herbert
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Neuronal differentiation during embryonic development is a fundamentally important process that ultimately results in the formation of functional neural circuitry.
  (BBSRC DTP) Definition of integrin signalling networks in neurons in vivo
  Prof A Prokop, Prof M J Humphries
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) of the plasma membrane physically tie cells together into tissues, both via interaction of cells with other cells or with ECM (extracellular matrix); they also constitute hubs of information exchange with neighbouring cells and the environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental unknown in understanding mechanisms of disease, and therefore improving therapy, is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
  (BBSRC DTP) Light-dependent control of physiology via the brain’s central clock
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aside from helping us perceive the world around us, light is a key regulator of physiology and behaviour due to its influence on the brains internal clock in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN).
  (BBSRC DTP) Modulating the microtubule network to improve nerve regeneration
  Dr N Gardiner, Prof A Prokop, Dr I Hahn, Dr A Reid
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axon terminals typically undergo dynamic extension and retraction processes in response to stimuli such as neurotrophic factors, physical stimuli or damage.
  (BBSRC DTP) Neural circuit mechanisms of sensory perception
  Dr R Petersen, Dr I Schiessl
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cerebral cortex has long been known to be a critical part of the brain’s computational machinery. damage to it, through stroke or neurodegeneration, causes severe deficits of perception and cognition.
