  Trained innate immunity in atherosclerosis
  Prof R Choudhury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

This laboratory studies the role of the innate immune system (monocytes / macrophages) on the progression and regression of atherosclerosis.
  Therapeutic targeting of chemokines in inflammation
  Prof S Bhattacharya
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation, driven by leucocytes, adversely affects organ function in diseases such as myocarditis, myocardial infarction, acute lung injury, sepsis and pancreatitis,.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.

  Prof D Kerr, Dr S Cai
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group has conducted a series of international adjuvant trials of chemotherapy for colorectal cancer (Kerr RS. et al, (2016), Lancet Oncol, 17, 1543 – 1557).
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

I have had a longstanding focus on inherited heart muscle diseases, in particular hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a relatively common Mendelian condition which puts affected individuals at risk of sudden cardiac death.
  Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease
  Dr E Tzima
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow.
  Myocardial biology with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrosis and atrial fibrillation

Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiac fibrosis is a hallmark histological feature of structural changes in the myocardium associated with virtually all cardiac diseases (e.g., heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation and myocarditis).
  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
