  Big Data Mining for Fighting Dementia
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a terminal neurodegenerative disease.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Fractional order modelling of neurons
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  The novel role of the CACHD1 protein in hyper-excitability disease
  Prof G J Stephens, Dr G Cottrell

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD position jointly supported by the School of Pharmacy, University of Reading and the UK life science medical research charity LifeArc, under the supervision of Prof Gary Stephens and Dr Graeme Cottrell (University of Reading) and Dr Paul Wright (LifeArc).
  Anxiety and motivation in Autism – are social behavioural features driven by social anxiety rather than by a reduced reward response to social stimuli?
  Prof B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social behavioural difficulties are commonly reported by individuals with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). One of the leading theories suggests that these difficulties are brought about by a reduced reward response to social stimuli, i.e.
