Showing 1 to 10 of 25
  Using bioinformatics and ontologies to bridge between healthcare, human genetics and model organism research
  Dr T Beck
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This project will build on a major public database of disease genetics (GWAS Central, https://www.gwascentral.org) to provide new methods and interfaces to.
  Impact of hypermutable sequences on microbial elicitation and evasion of host immune responses
  Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 6 May 2019
Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) cause multiple human diseases including otitis media, the commonest bacterial infection in children.
  Investigation of metabolomic biomarkers of heart failure
  Prof T Suzuki
Application Deadline: 6 May 2019
MRC-funded IMPACT (Integrated Midlands Partnership for Biomedical Training) CASE Doctoral Training Partnership 3.5 Year CASE (industrial partner) PhD Studentship available for September 2019.
  Clock gene polymorphisms in Drosophila; natural selection and function
  Prof C P Kyriacou, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 5 May 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.
  Understanding the role of serotonergic systems in motor control
  Dr J McDearmid, Dr W NORTON
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Serotonin is a key modulator of locomotor activity in the brain and spinal cord of vertebrates. A wide range pharmacological and lesion studies have provided important information about the role of serotonergic systems in modulation of motor output.
  How does nucleosome remodelling silence chromatin?
  Dr T Schalch, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Regulation of transcription through chromatin architecture is governed by nucleosome remodelers and is essential in establishing the transcriptional programs of eukaryotic cells, which underpin survival, cellular identity and many disease states.
  Structural mechanism of signal-dependent gene transcription
  Prof D Panne, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The control of gene transcription is one of the main regulatory steps for cellular gene regulation.
  Ameliorating ageing and age-related diseases by targeting senescent cells
  Dr S Macip, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of organs and thus lead to the normal phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases.
  Obtaining mechanistic insights into interplay of multiple RAS effectors in a model system
  Dr K Tanaka, Dr C Dominguez
Application Deadline: 5 May 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).
  Copy number variation in gibbon genomes
  Dr E Hollox, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Genome structure, including the number and arrangement of chromosomes (called the karyotype), is relatively stable across evolutionary time, with only a few small changes between human and gorilla karyotypes, for example.
