  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.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Fractional order modelling of neurons
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.

"Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a devastating disorder that affects 1% of the population and is the most costly condition in the UK.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  Neural Engineering
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr N Vasudevan, Prof S Nasuto
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Preservation of criticality in hypoxic, dissociated neural networks, via oestrogen triggered synaptic modulation. Billions of interconnected neurons communicate electrically and form activity patterns in a critical state, finely balanced between order and chaos.
  The impact of protein ubiquitination on ageing and ageing-associated diseases
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ageing is characterized by a general functional decline of cells, tissues and organs with increased risk of disease, such as neurodegenerative disorders.
