We have 54 Bioinformatics (self) PhD Research Projects

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Biomedical Data

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the leading edge approaches to data driven problems across all areas of life, technology and sciences. Read more

Understanding the interaction and functional mechanism of mitochondrial MIA pathway

Mitochondria are vitally important organelles of living cells, which generate the primary energy for all biological activities. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to life threatening diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, and various neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Read more

Bacterial genome evolution

The University of Manchester’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology ( is offering a unique self-funded PhD studentship in Bacterial genome evolution through the study of ancient omics. Read more

Using Brain Computer Interface to Improve Cognitive Performance

Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a non-invasive technique commonly used to measure brain activity. In this project, we aim at using EEG Biofeedback (brain-computer interface (BCI)) for improving cognitive performance (e.g. Read more

In vitro immunotherapy testing: towards next level personalised treatment identification

  Research Group: Translational Tumour Biology
Around 200 children are diagnosed with high-risk cancer in Australia each year. Over 140 of these children still die due to the occurrence of resistance to traditional chemotherapy. Read more

Defining the role of primary cilia in brain development

A PhD student position is available for highly motivated individuals with interest in studying primary cilia and brain development using a combination of molecular, cellular, genetic, live cell imaging, and bioinformatics approaches. Read more

Investigating the role of the regulatory renin-angiotensin system in protecting against synaptic dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease

Rationale. Mid-life hypertension is a modifiable risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and blood pressure lowering drugs, especially those that target the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS), lowers the incidence of AD, and reduces the conversion of MCI and slows the progression of AD. Read more

PhD: Identifying biomarkers and understanding the causes of neurodegenerative diseases

Self-funded students are welcome to apply all year round on a project that looks to identify biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases with the purpose of developing disease markers to help predict/detect disease, understand the underlying mechanisms of then disease and identify novel targets for drug development to treat the disease. Read more

Multi-omics data fusion for better understanding of host-microbe interactions in health and disease

"The rapid development and adoption of high-throughput, high resolution analytical technologies (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, metagenomics) has resulted in the generation of an avalanche of omics data. Read more

Dissecting the role of novel haematopoietic factors in development and disease

Blood is made up of different cell types with different functions, such as carrying oxygen (red blood cells), help with wound healing (platelets) and fighting infections (white blood cells). Read more

Transcription replication coordination

RNA Pol II (RNAPII) transcription and DNA replication are the two essential-for-life processes that use as a substrate the DNA in our cells, allowing them to express the content of their genetic information and to propagate these instructions to daughter cells. Read more

Genome-wide translational responses to stress

We are interested in gene regulation in responses to stress, using both simple model organisms, human and plant pathogens. Cells respond to stress conditions by launching complex programs of gene expression, both transcriptional and posttranscriptional, and which are often closely linked with each other. Read more
