Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on the development of metabolic disease in the offspring
  Dr N Ashton, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pregnant Muslim women are exempt from the daily fast during the month of Ramadan; however many choose participate, wanting to share this experience with their families.
  Two pore channel segment 2: a new partner in crime for mTORC1 in pulmonary hypertension
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mechanistic target of Rapamycin (mTOR) and regulatory protein of TOR (Raptor) complexes (mTORC1) promote idiopathic- and hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (PH), facilitating pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cell (PASMC) growth, proliferation, and thus pulmonary vascular remodelling.
  PhD studentship in Delineating Molecular Mechanisms of Human Neuronal Physiology and Neurodegeneration
  Dr C Rallis
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD research studentship in the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience, University of East London.
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
  Dr J Glazier, Dr N Ashton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pregnant women fast during the holy month of Ramadan despite being exempt. As the fetus relies upon the mother for its supply of nutrients, fasting is likely to affect development of the fetus.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on cognitive development
  Dr N Ashton, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Frailty is a significant challenge to ageing individuals, of central importance to well-being and a widely accepted public health problem.
  Sex hormone actions in frailty and health during ageing
  Dr M Garratt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well established that testosterone and estrogens can influence ageing, with hormone administration improving physical function, muscle and bone strength in some cohorts of the elderly.
