  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) Examining the neural pathways controlling human swallowing in the older brain through cortical and peripheral neurostimulation
  Prof S Hamdy, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process involves physiological and neurological changes that diminish swallowing safety and efficiency, which may increase the risk of life-threatening complications such as malnutrition and aspiration pneumonia.
  (BBSRC DTP) Light-dependent control of physiology via the brain’s central clock
  Dr T Brown, Dr D Bechtold, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aside from helping us perceive the world around us, light is a key regulator of physiology and behaviour due to its influence on the brains internal clock in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN).
  (BBSRC DTP) The physiology and energetics of locomotion in turtles: linking performance from the organismal to the cellular level
  Dr J Codd, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turtles have the most distinctive body plans of vertebrates (1). Turtles appear in the fossil record over 220 million years ago. Turtles are unique among vertebrates in that their whole body is enclosed within a rigid bony shell, composed of the carapace and plastron, that protects from predators.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  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.
  Understanding differential responses to retinoid treatments in human health and disease: a precision medicine approach
  Prof R Watson, Dr A Langton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans retinoic acid (t-RA), are endogenous signalling molecules derived from vitamin A that influence a variety of cellular processes through mediation of transcription events in the cell nucleus.
