  (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 2019
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.
  British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2019
British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2018. University of Manchester. The 4-Year British Heart Foundation PhD programme at the University of Manchester signals a new and flexible approach to cardiovascular research training.
  Characterising motor impairments in autism using computational techniques
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round
The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys.
  Effect of vitamin D in vascular and endocrine cells
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round
Vitamin D3 deficiency is a common public health problem worldwide that is increasingly believed to contribute not only to decreased bone mineralisation but potentially to other serious medical conditions.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Evaluating new technologies for promotion of healthy active ageing: using smartphone apps and sensors to promote activity- acceptability and adherence measurement?
  Prof C Todd, Dr E Boulton, Dr H Hague
Applications accepted all year round
Health apps, and wearable technologies such as smartwatches and other body worn sensors connected to smartphones or other recording and transmitting systems, are becoming increasingly common.
  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round
The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  Fish Cardiac Physiology in an Era of Climate Change
  Dr H Shiels, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Effective cardiac pumping is critical to supply oxygen for all physiological functions and is a primary determinant of a fish’s upper thermal tolerance.
