  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  The impact of zinc deficiency on Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr C Lawrence, Prof D Brough
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to memory problems, people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) also experience ‘non-memory’ behavioural symptoms including depression, anxiety, and agitation.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environment, Diet and Oral Health in Early Historic Ireland and Scotland
  Prof M Oxenham, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment in general, and climate in particular, are at times a catalyst for human resilience and adaptation. Notwithstanding, environmental and climatic variability can also have catastrophic effects for human health.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
  Genetic Analysis of Complex Phenotypes in Autotetraploid Potato
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cultivated potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) have become the 3rd most important crop in the world and therefore play an important role in addressing world food security.
  Understanding the impact of co-infection on lung immune responses and allergy
  Prof R May, Dr C Pashley, Dr D Cunningham
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alveolar macrophages are white blood cells that provide an essential first line of defence in the lung. They hunt, engulf and destroy invading pathogens.
  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
  EASTBIO Sex dimorphisms in innate immunity, inflammatory pathology, and ageing
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr J Regan, Dr S Jenkins
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the largest risk factor for the developed world’s biggest killers, and the impact of age-related disease is one of society’s foremost challenges.

  Understanding bone mass using collageneases and aggrecanases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is not only essential for locomotion, support and protection but crucial for many aspects of animal and human health. Specifically, bone is a calcium/phosphorous reservoir, is integral to glucose metabolism, houses the hematopoietic system and cross-talks with renal and reproductive systems.
  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  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.
  *EASTBIO* How does a mammalian cell physically organise the complex processes of gene expression and regulation?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Accurate gene expression and regulation in mammalian cells is a hugely complex process, essential for cellular and organismal homeostasis.
