  Regulation of mitochondrial gene expression (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr M Minczuk
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The key objective of this PhD project is to study nuclear-encoded proteins involved in mitochondrial (mt-) RNA metabolism, in order to understand how their dysfunction is linked to human mitochondrial pathologies.
  DNA damage response and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr S Khoronenkova
Applications accepted all year round
Human cells repair thousands of DNA lesions daily. The majority of lesions arise from the intrinsic chemical instability of DNA and include single-strand breaks and base modifications.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round
This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  How do malaria parasites sense and respond to DNA damage?
  Dr C Merrick
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis.
  Understanding Zika virus pathogenesis in human neurons
  Dr N Irigoyen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Increased global travel, urbanization and climate change have dramatically increased the likelihood of encounters with emerging and re-emerging viruses.
  Characterisation of the mechanism of norovirus VPg-dependent RNA synthesis.
  Prof I Goodfellow
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Noroviruses have an impact of >$60 billion pa, yet we have no vaccines or therapeutics. This project will use a combination of molecular and biochemical approaches to dissect norovirus VPg-primed RNA synthesis.
