Showing 1 to 9 of 9
  The role of FOXO1 in obesity-driven protection in cardiac surgery
  Prof G Murphy, Dr S Yusoff, Dr M Woźniak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD student will work as part of the BHF funded Cardiac Surgery Research Group, the largest cardiac surgery research group in the UK.
  Graph Databasing Approaches in Making Biomedical Data Findable
  Prof A J Brookes
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current biomedical tools that support data findability/discoverability are typically based on simple query logic, and provide binary (yes/No) response options.
  How acquisition of antimicrobial resistance genes enhance bacterial colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew, Prof J M Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human immune system uses antimicrobial metals as part of its defence mechanism. Excess copper is highly toxic and accumulates at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Molecular basis of hearing in Insects
  Dr B Warren
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The newly-founded Warren lab is after an ambitious and resilient PhD student to work on hearing in the desert locust.
  Developing precision medicines for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas
  Dr S Macip, Prof M J S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to look for novel therapies for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas in a translational and mechanistic fashion.
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.
  Molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulatory complexes
  Prof J Schwabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of gene expression is fundamental to all stages of life. In appropriate or failure of in this regulation is a major cause of disease including cancers and metabolic diseases.
  Targeting senescence to ameliorate ageing and treat cancer and other diseases
  Dr S Macip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is a biological process that affects all living creatures. Despite the scientific advances of the past decades, the mechanisms that lead to ageing in humans are not fully understood.
