PhD Studentship (3 years) In Vivo Diagnosis of Paediatric Brain Tumours using Multi-Modal Clinical MRI and Machine Learning

Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) and the College of Health and Life Sciences, to be undertaken within the Artificial Intelligence in Paediatric Neuroimaging (AIPNI) Research Group at Aston University. Read more

Dissecting the mechanism of pathological aged-related protein aggregation

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Aggregation of aberrant proteins is a hallmark in age-related neurodegenerative diseases. These aggregates cause cell death and tissue degeneration leading to loss of function, hence strategies to reduce aggregation are necessary for delaying disease onset and progression. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Understanding the Impacts of Inhaled Particulate Matter on Neurological Health

The biological processes underlying the development of dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are complex and not fully understood, but accumulating evidence has demonstrated that exposure to air pollution, especially airborne particles, is a potentially important environmental risk factor.

Co-design and real-world testing of an intervention to implement an evidence- and theory-based long-term physical activity intervention into stroke rehabilitation pathways (PARAS-IMP) (REF: SF22/HLS/SER/MOORE)

The Department of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation at Northumbria University, Newcastle has a global reputation for academic excellence that is underpinned by a vibrant, high-quality research-rich environment. We are seeking enthusiastic and talented PhD candidates for the following project.

Exploring the Molecular Mechanism of Novel Mitochondrial Neurotoxins identified through a Machine Learning Approach

Mitochondrial inhibition is an important ‘OFF-target’ mechanism of drug-induced toxicity in the clinic, contributing to drug attrition in clinical trials and drug withdrawal following approval because of severe adverse events 1. Read more

Structure and function of Batten disease proteins

The neuronal ceroid lipofucscinoses are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders with primarily childhood onset. The most common form, also known as Batten disease or CLN3 disease, is caused by recessively inherited mutation in the CLN3 gene. Read more

Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception - a computational modelling approach

This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.

The flexible use of human memory: High-precision imaging of subcortical-cortical networks

The PhD project will focus on understanding the flexible use of memory using high-precision neuroimaging. A key goal is to develop novel analytical approaches to maximize the context-dependent readout of mnemonic content. Read more
