  Analysis of RNAseH2a function in Neurodegeneration
  Dr F Van Eeden, Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr N Hamilton
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor DNA repair and genome instability are not only involved in cancer, but also implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. For instance, repeat expansions in the C9ORF27 gene are major cause of motoneuron disease.
  Combining in vivo models and bioinformatics to investigating the role of retroelements in neuroinflammation
  Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr N Hamilton, Dr M Dunning
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endogenous retroelements are the remnant of old retrovirus infections that have integrated into our DNA. They represent 40% of the human genome and have been for a long time considered junk DNA.
  Identification of biochemical changes linked to age-related hearing loss and their association with neurological disorders
  Prof W Marcotti, Prof S El-Khamisy, Dr L Ferraiuolo
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related hearing loss (ARHL), which causes the progressive loss of hearing sensitivity, is the most common sensory deficit in elderly.
  Identification of the pathological changes that affect neural activity in motor neurone disease
  Dr R Schmidt, Dr L Ferraiuolo
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a devastating incurable neurodegenerative disorder affecting the motor nerves. The pathological changes in MND that involve glia cells affect the composition of ion channels in neurons in the primary motor cortex and the spinal cord.
  Improving diagnostic procedures for epilepsy through automated recording and analysis of patients’ history
  Prof M Reuber, Dr H Christenson, Dr T Walker
Application Deadline: 15 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a PhD project for a student with a background in computer science, neuroscience, linguistics or psychology which will combine quantitative and qualitative…
  Machine learning prediction of neurodegenerative therapy response using molecular biomarkers
  Dr M Alvarez, Dr D Wang
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The failure rate for new drugs entering clinical trials is in excess of 90%, with more than a quarter of drugs failing due to lack of efficiency.
  Memory consolidation and forgetting in natural and artificial neural circuits
  Dr A Lin, Dr E Vasilaki
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

What should intelligent systems do with learned information? Biological brains have evolved to retain important information as consolidated memories, while forgetting unimportant or obsolete memories.
  Neuronal activity in zebrafish models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD)
  Dr A Grierson, Dr A Nikolaev
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our understanding of the genetic basis of neurodegeneration is advancing at an ever-increasing rate. One of the biggest challenges is to understand how mutations in dozens of different genes can cause the same disease in man.

  Restoring auditory function in mammals using AAV–based gene therapy
  Prof W Marcotti, Prof M Azzouz
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related hearing loss (ARHL), which causes the progressive loss of hearing sensitivity, is the most common sensory deficit in elderly, leading to their social isolation and depression.
