  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and the food industry are urgently seeking to develop healthier processed foods. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not digested to glucose in the upper-gut.
  The gut microbiome and inflammaging (CARDINGQ20CASE)
  Prof S Carding
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of people living beyond 75 will almost double in the next twenty years. This presents. significant societal challenges particularly for public finances and the NHS as life expectancy increases at a faster rate than healthy and disability-free life expectancy.
  Unlocking pulse protein: A new look at mechanisms that limit bioaccessibility (EDWARDSQ20DTP)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inadequate protein nutrition is a major health concern to children and the institutionalised elderly. Although animal proteins are the best source of protein nutrition, 76% of the global population currently rely on plant protein.
  Gene splicing in tissue morphogenesis (HAERTYE20DTP)
  Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly all the genes in vertebrates undergo alternative splicing, the process through which different transcripts are generated from a single gene.
  Genomics of mimicry in Neotropical Corydoras catfishes (TAYLORU20DTP)
  Dr M Taylor, Dr L Spurgin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mimetic relationships - where two or more species share colour patterns to reduce attacks by predators are some of the most powerful demonstrations of natural selection in nature.
  The role of integrins in muscle stem cell function (MAYERU20DTP)
  Prof U Mayer, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Men and women lose 50% of their skeletal muscle mass in later life through a process called age-related sarcopenia, characterised by a combined loss of muscle mass, endurance and strength.
  Turning Up the Heat on Pest Insect Reproduction: Optimising Thermal Control in Dry Food Storage Facilities (GAGEU20DTP)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stored product insect pests seriously damage global food production, especially in developing countries. Chemical methods to control these pests are either becoming regulated due to health concerns or environmental damage, or have become less effective as resistance evolves.
  Reproductive interference for insect control (CHAPMANU20DTP2)
  Prof T Chapman, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will train at the interface of fundamental reproductive biology, bioinformatics and genetic engineering, to develop proof-of-principle for the use of reproductive interference as complementary new method for insect control.
  Gifts that keep on giving: maternal effects and insect pest control (CHAPMANU20DTP1)
  Prof T Chapman, Dr P Leftwich
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will train at the interface of genetic engineering and fundamental biology to understand the role of maternal RNAs in early development.
  Conservation genomics of the European Polecat (DIPALMAUEI20ARIES)
  Prof F Di Palma
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The European polecat is a medium-sized carnivore found across much of the United Kingdom. Once persecuted and found only in unmanaged forests of central Wales, it is now widespread across much of its former range.
