  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Identification of cell types and subtypes within tissues by mass spectrometry imaging
  Dr A McMahon, Prof K Williams, Dr N Thacker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will bring together the capabilities of the University’s Imaging research group, and the extensive mass spectrometry imaging facilities of the Medicine Discovery Catapult at Alderley Park, at Waters at their Wilmslow site and using a DESI-imaging mass spectrometer, placed by Waters, at the University.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the developing microbiome in new-born babies
  Dr S Cruickshank, Prof A McBain, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome contains a large diverse community of microorganisms with our bacteria being best understood. These bacteria play crucial roles for our health such as aiding in the digestion of food, production of key vitamins and metabolites and programming out immune system.
  (BBSRC DTP) How is our head formed? – alx1 homeobox gene and craniofacial development
  Dr S Herbert, Dr T Takahashi, Prof M Rattray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

The recent technological advancement of bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing and live imaging has transformed medical research.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020. Our British Heart Foundation (BHF) 4-year PhD programme provides tailored doctoral training for postgraduate students with an interest in cardiovascular sciences.
  Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials
  Dr V Liu, Dr L Swanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  How do phosphodiesterases contribute to the pathophysiology of heart failure?
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure (HF) remains a major cause of death with worse 5-year survival than all forms of cancer combined. This project seeks to understand the mechanisms that underlie two important contributing factors to death in HF patients; i) contractile failure and, ii) the increased propensity for arrhythmias.
