  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Liquid biopsy of the liver to improve molecular targeted cancer therapy
  Prof C Goldring, Prof F Falciani, Dr A Chadwick, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular targeted therapies have revolutionised oncology. However, whilst patient life-expectancy is improving, these therapies carry a risk of causing damage to healthy tissues in the body, especially to the liver.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Use of 3D skin models and patient-derived immune cells to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of skin detachment in severe drug-induced skin adverse reactions
  Dr D Carr, Prof D Naisbitt, Prof A Dickinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are life-threatening skin adverse drug reactions which can be caused by a multitude of prescriptions drugs.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining senolytic treatment with exercise to prevent the development of sarcopenia
  Dr S Miwa, Prof A McArdle, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Muscle loss with ageing (sarcopenia) is a major contributor to frailty and loss of independency in older people. Exercise intervention can improve muscle function, but is not able to prevent age-associated muscle loss.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Drug discovery to control C. difficile infections by targeting sporulation
  Dr P Salgado, Dr J Hubbard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in a PhD studying antibiotic resistant bacteria and explore new ways to treat drug-resistant infections? In this PhD, you will use a range of biochemistry, biophysical and structural techniques, together with molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology approached to develop new therapeutics targeting C.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding zinc-dependent regulation of TRPC5 channels and its role in diabetes
  Dr R.S. Bon, Dr S Muench, Dr P Sukumar
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

TRPC5 ion channels are emerging drug targets, for example for CNS disorders, renal disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease (Cells 2018, 7, pii.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  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.
