  Replacement of animal models of cardiac arrest and resuscitation strategies using a computer simulation
  Prof J Hardman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Cardiac arrest may be caused by a variety of pathologies and events, causing the heart to stop pumping blood around the body and to the brain, causing loss of consciousness and cessation of breathing.
  Computational modelling apnoea and high-flow upper airway oxygenation
  Prof J Hardman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Apnoea is the cessation of ventilation and it is common after induction of anesthesia. It may cause hypoxemia (low oxygen levels in the blood) and hypercapnia (accumulation of carbon dioxide in the blood).
  From motor cortex to muscle: Novel interventions to address the discordant relationship between age-related declines of muscle size and strength
  Dr M Piasecki, Dr S Chiou, Dr B Phillips
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Background. Age-related loss of muscle strength is often explained by the concomitant reduction in muscle mass, however the former appears to decline more rapidly than the latter and this discordant relationship is poorly described, and often entirely overlooked.
  Engineering and Physical Sciences Thematic Studentships
 Applications are now open for up to 18 PhD studentships at the University of Nottingham, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
  Understanding how systemic infection exacerbates Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr MC Pardon
Applications accepted all year round
Systemic infection and inflammation are associated with the risk and progression of Alzheimer’s disease but the underlying mechanisms are unclear.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Mechanisms of neuronal protection in diabetic neuropathy.
  Dr L Donaldson
Applications accepted all year round
Sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to damage. This is now most commonly found in diabetes mellitus where hyperglycaemia results in the production of several factors (e.g.
  Understanding neuron connectivity in health and disease
  Dr F Dajas-Bailador
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to think, move, or sense the environment depends on the correct formation and subtle changes of neuronal circuits and their billions of connections.
  A neuroprotective role for Schwann cell glycogen in sciatic nerve diabetic neuropathy
  Dr A Brown
Applications accepted all year round
We have established that glycogen is present in sciatic nerves of mice, the first such description; we aim to determine the potential for glycogen as an endogenous neuroprotective agent that supports axons in peripheral nerves during diabetes.
  Characterization of a Novel Human Myokine
  Dr A Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle, in addition to its traditional role in movement in the body, is involved in regulating physiological homeostasis and disease progression in other tissues.
