  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  Structural insights into ligand binding and channel gating in ATP-gated P2X7 receptor
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X7 receptor, belonging to the ATP-gated ion channel P2X receptor family, exhibits distinct functional and pharmacological properties that are crucial for its role in innate immunity and inflammatory diseases and cancers (Jiang et al., 2013; Caseley et al., 2014; Roger et al., 2014; Wei et al., 2018).
