  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Sudden cardiac death in human athletes – electrophysiological and molecular insights from the animal models
  Dr K Jeevaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting fully funded PhD studentship opportunity exploring the electrophysiological and molecular profile of the equine heart as a model for high performing human athletes.
  How do phosphodiesterases contribute to the pathophysiology of heart failure?
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure (HF) remains a major cause of death with worse 5-year survival than all forms of cancer combined. This project seeks to understand the mechanisms that underlie two important contributing factors to death in HF patients; i) contractile failure and, ii) the increased propensity for arrhythmias.
  Mechanisms of neuronal protection in diabetic neuropathy.
  Dr L Donaldson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensory neurons are particularly vulnerable to damage. This is now most commonly found in diabetes mellitus where hyperglycaemia results in the production of several factors (e.g.
  EASTBIO: Identifying the involvement of putative stretch-sensitive proteins in blood pressure regulation - a bioinformatics investigation of pregnancy to answer a basic science question.
  Dr G S Bewick, Dr T Wishart, Dr S Bhattacharya, Dr E Collie-Duguid

  Combatting brain and body ageing through exercise
  Prof H Piggins, Dr K Ellacott, Prof A E Pickering
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is popularly accepted that the way to a long life is through regular exercise, good sleeping habits and a healthy diet.
  Novel approaches for treating cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Erickson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death throughout most of the world, and existing therapeutic options are unsuitable for a large percentage of patients.
  4 year DPhil (PhD) in Cardiovascular Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and strokes, remains the leading cause of premature death and disability in Europe and the USA.
  Cardiac energetics and integrative physiology: Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Prof C Lygate, Dr S Zervou
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying key components of the creatine kinase system to understand how they contribute to the pathophysiology of ischaemic heart disease and chronic heart failure.
  Tissue antigen and immune cell turnover in health and disease
  Dr R Busch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy immune system is in a state of restful homeostasis. Activation of the immune system, whether to fight infections or during immune-mediated diseases, involves substantial changes in the rates at which immune cells and proteins are produced and destroyed (turnover).
