  Deriving a new weighted capitation model for UK General Practice
  Prof T Marshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Capitation payments make up the majority of General Practice income in the UK NHS. Capitation payments are weighted using the Carr-Hill formula to take account of factors affecting workload.
  BIRM-CAM: Bringing Innovative Research Methods to Clustering Analysis of Multimorbidity
  Dr C Yau, Prof T Marshall, Dr K Nirantharakumar
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Multimorbidity is when people suffer from more than one long-term illness.
  Mybl2 in the regulation of cell fate decisions
  Dr P Garcia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the molecular mechanisms regulating cell fate decisions that occur during normal development, somatic reprogramming and cancer.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  The Role of LIM Domain Only Proteins in Neuroblastoma
  Dr M Hoogenkamp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Person Specification. An Upper Second Class Honours Degree (or equivalent) in a relevant study or Master’s degree is expected. Prior experience in cell and molecular biology is an advantage.
  Transcription regulation in the context of genome stability
  Dr M Saponaro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA in our cells is a substrate for both RNA Pol II (RNAPII) transcription and DNA replication. Consequently, only one of the two processes can use the DNA as a template at any given time.
  Development of novel artificial intelligence algorithms for network wide metabolic flux analysis with stable isotope tracers
  Dr C Ludwig, Dr S He
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The efficient function of the metabolic network in eukaryotic cells relies on its separation into a number of closely-linked but metabolically distinct compartments.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Elucidating the emergence of multi-drug resistant Enterococcus faecium
  Prof W Van Schaik, Dr A McNally
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Gram-positive bacterium Enterococcus faecium is a commensal of the intestinal tract of humans and animals. However, over the last two decades a clone of E.
