Showing 1 to 8 of 8
  Sensory perception in control of mammalian life-history
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round
Life history theory is built on the assumption that there are trade-offs between life-history traits, such as between early and late-life reproduction, and between reproduction and lifespan.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round
It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
  Circadian rhythm of heart rate regulation in diabetes
  Dr R Lamberts, Dr CT Bussey
Applications accepted all year round
Resting heart rate is the strongest predictor of mortality in patients with cardiac disease. Incompetence in heart rate regulation is an undervalued feature of the diabetic heart with major cardiovascular consequences.
  Imaging the rhythms of stress hormone secretion
  Dr K Iremonger
Applications accepted all year round
Corticosteroid stress hormones are released throughout the day in hourly pulses with a peak in secretion prior to the onset of the active period (early morning for humans, early evening for rodents).
  Optogenenetic voltage reporting to understand cerebellar learning
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round
Cerebellar Purkinje neurons, the main output neuron of the cerebellar cortex, undergo a variety of forms of synaptic plasticity that are thought to underlie aspects of motor learning.
  Optogenetic voltage reporting to probe cerebellar to motor cortex connections
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round
The cerebellum and the motor cortex are known to communicate during motor behaviour for the refinement of movement.
  Therapeutic approaches for the treatment of cerebellar ataxias and tremors
  Dr R Empson
Applications accepted all year round
Cerebellar ataxias and tremor are devastating movement disorders that often begin early in life and for which there is no cure.
  Development of lipid carriers to treat inflammation at the blood-brain barrier
  Dr S Rizwan
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
PhD scholarships are available for an international or New Zealand candidate to work on a multi-disciplinary project that spans pharmaceutical sciences and neuroscience in New Zealand.
