  New ways to look at enzyme structures
  Dr P C E Moody, Dr J Basran
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Metal-catalysed activation of oxygen in biology is achieved using either copper or iron. In the case of iron, this includes the heme-containing enzymes which activate oxygen.
  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple RAS effectors in a model system
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr C Dominguez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. Importantly, about 20% of all human cancers harbour mutations in RAS genes (COSMIC).
  Structural mechanism of signal-dependent gene transcription
  Prof D Panne, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The control of gene transcription is one of the main regulatory steps for cellular gene regulation.
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
  Developing precision medicines for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas
  Dr S Macip, Prof M J S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, we propose to look for novel therapies for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas in a translational and mechanistic fashion.
  Targeting senescence to ameliorate ageing and treat cancer and other diseases
  Dr S Macip
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Plastic a new anthropogenic component of the geological cycle: its chemical and physical behaviour and transformation
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project will use a suite of cutting edge analytical techniques and experimental design to address an important and significant problem.
  The role of fibroblasts in skeletal muscle ageing (SSEHS/NM)
  Dr N Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  Development of Novel Functional Intermediate Layers for Power Electronics Integration - Ref: CL2UF2018
  Prof C Liu
Applications accepted all year round
Power electronics are widely used in electric and hybrid vehicles (EHV), aerospace crafts, renewable power components and traction control systems.
  Analysis of mechanisms of pre-mRNA splicing by single molecule fluorescence
  Prof I C Eperon
Applications accepted all year round
Project co-supervised with Dr D. Cherny. Pre-mRNA splicing is highly complex. Over a hundred proteins and several RNA species assemble into dynamic complexes, in a pathway defined by several stable partial complexes.
