  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Maternal anti-hypertensive medicines & placental vascular function
  Dr P Brownbill, Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

A range of anti-hypertensive medicines are prescribed to women with chronic hypertension in pregnancy, that enter the fetal circulation.
  Phenotyping placental disease in women with diabetes and chronic hypertension using transcriptomic analysis
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Placental disease triggers medically-indicated preterm birth in 1 in 6 pregnancies complicated by chronic hypertension and/or diabetes (cardiometabolic disease).
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
