  Precision-cut lung slices to investigate the effect of human rhinovirus on cough and airway inflammation
  Dr L Sadofsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human Rhinovirus (RV) is the major cause of the common cold. There are no current treatments or vaccines for the virus other than over the counter preparations to alleviate symptoms.
  Applying human drug discovery approaches to kauri die back disease
  Prof M Glass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phytophthora agathidicida is currently threatening New Zealand’s most iconic tree, the kauri. Current efforts to halt its spread through New Zealand forests are failing.
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
  Assessment of excitability of Human pain neurons pain neurons using a novel calcium imaging assay
  Dr M Nassar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pain is an important warning system to guard against tissue damage. Pathological pain, however, has no warning value and has huge economical, social and personal costs on society.
  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.
  Fully Funded Public Health England PhD Scholarship: Use of advanced multi-cellular models of the human respiratory system to investigate the mechanistic effects of particulate and gaseous air pollutants
  Dr M Clift
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This scholarship is funded by Public Health England (PHE). Start date. January 2020. Subject areas. In Vitro Systems; In Vivo Models; Cell Biology; Cell Culture; Toxicology; Air Pollution; Particulate; NO2.
  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.
  Proteomics to determine how defects in membrane trafficking within the secretory pathway cause human disease
  Prof M Lowe, Prof V Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Work in the Lowe laboratory is aimed at deciphering the molecular mechanisms that control membrane trafficking within cells. A major focus of our work is the trafficking of proteins to and through the Golgi apparatus, which lies at the heart of the secretory pathway.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
  Sensing for human in vivo pharmacology
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr KD Dhaliwal, Dr A Akram
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As part of a recently awarded EPSRC grant, in partnership with GSK, we are seeking a biology student with excellent practical laboratory skills to evaluate new models with GSK and other imaging and sensing techniques on a series of escalating biological models.
