Showing 1 to 10 of 46
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Applying – omics methods to map the circadian matrisome
  Dr J Swift, Dr Q-J Meng, Prof K E Kadler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Circadian rhythm regulates and synchronises biological processes through a daily cycle. Molecular clocks in cells throughout the human body are entrained to a ‘master clock’ located in the hypothalamus, and cells in almost all tissues have been found to contain rhythmic genes.
  (BBSRC DTP) Mapping the structural and functional organisation of the human brain via in vivo neuroimaging and complex network analysis.
  Dr L Cloutman, Dr A Woollams
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The performance of the wide range of cognitive tasks we carry out in our daily lives including remembering, speaking, deciding and planning depends upon the interaction of complex networks of widely distributed brain regions.
  (BBSRC DTP) A new animal test of emotional cognition
  Dr J Gigg, Dr D Talmi, Prof J Neill
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will create and implement a new animal test for emotional biases in attention and memory that is more closely linked with the impact that emotion has on the same functions in humans.
  (MBRC) Widening uptake and adherence to treatment with hearing aids via a new model of service delivery
  Prof K Munro, Dr M Stone, Prof H Dillon, Dr D Moore
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The average age of first-time wearers of hearing aids dispensed by the NHS is 74 years, by which time candidates typically have a moderate hearing loss and are struggling in many listening situations.
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round
In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
  Emotion regulation in strategic decision-making: A cognitive neuroscience approach
  Dr D Talmi, Prof G Hodgkinson, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round
The emotional response to wins and losses influences decision-making. Emotion regulation refers to a family of techniques that modify the emotional response.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Feasibility of delivering group psychological support to stroke survivors in community settings
  Dr E Patchwood, Prof A Bowen, Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Supporting people to come to terms with persisting disability and life after stroke is a high priority for stroke research. There is an urgent need for evidence-based, clinically and financially effective psychological interventions that can be feasibly delivered for community-based stroke survivors.
