  Gene Regulation by the KAT6A/MOZ Histone Acetyltransferase
  Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human KAT6A and KAT6B genes encode the nuclear proteins MOZ and MORF, which are key gene regulators in development of blood, brain and other tissues.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  The analysis of genetic and environmental contributions to the risk of congenital heart disease
  Dr S Loughna, Prof J D Brook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to BHF statistics 12 babies are born with heart defects in the UK each day and more cases. are diagnosed in later life.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  The molecular mechanisms of organelle transport by motor protein myosin-V
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organelle transport is essential for cellular function and survival, and these processes are disrupted in many common diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Alpha-defensin haplotypes and IgA nephropathy risk
  Prof J A L Armour, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human alpha-defensin genes DEFA1 and DEFA3 encode short antimicrobial peptides that are important components of the innate immune system, and are subject to copy number variation (CNV) with individuals having between 3 and 18 copies.
