  Big Data Mining for Fighting Dementia
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a terminal neurodegenerative disease.
  Developing methods for the analysis of chromosome conformation data
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome conformational data allows us to investigate the three dimensional structure of the genome. This project will involve developing novel computational and statistical methods for the analysis of genomic contact data.
  Developing pipelines for the inference of gene regulatory networks
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene regulatory networks are fundamental to many processes that take place in the cell. However learning the structure of these networks from high-throughput experimental data and deriving useful biological insights is challenging.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Cardio-metabolic diseases in different ethnic groups
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
  Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations.
  Evaluating the prebiotic influence of selected herbs
  Prof G Gibson, Dr G Walton
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

"Prebiotics are dietary carbohydrates, and possibly polyphenols, that are resistant to upper gut hydrolysis and enter the human large intestine intact.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste
  Dr M Oruna-Concha, Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr L Methven
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Maximising the efficacy of polyphenols on cardiovacular health
  Dr C Mills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases are the worlds’ leading cause of death. Dietary approaches to prevent or treat these diseases are becoming increasingly accepted.
