  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using nanotechnology, structural biology and genome editing to study how fungal receptors promote the spread of lethal diseases
  Dr N Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Mechanisms controlling organelle dynamics and quality control
  Prof P Carvalho
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab is interested in membrane-bound organelles- how they form and acquire their distinctive proteome essential to carry their specialized functions.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  Flaviviral manipulation of autophagy for biogenesis and evasion of host immune responses
  Dr S Sanyal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate mechanisms of flavivirus biogenesis, with particular emphasis on Zika and Dengue. Current understanding on how progeny virions are assembled and secreted is limited.
  Rhomboid-like proteins and the cell biology of signalling
  Prof M Freeman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main questions we study are what cellular mechanisms regulate signalling between animal cells, and how does that signalling control biological functions like physiology, development and disease? Our current focus recently is the rhomboid-like superfamily of proteins.
  Novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
  Prof S Winder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by mutations in the DMD gene leading to loss of the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin.
  Does fatty acid uptake by oral cancer cells drive metastasis?
  Dr C Murdoch, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cell surface receptor CD36 belongs to a large scavenger receptor family that primarily bind lipid-containing molecules. Until recently their expression was thought to be restricted to macrophages and endothelial cells but recent data suggest that epithelial cancer cells may also express this receptor.
