  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebite envenomation (SBE), a high priority neglected tropical disease affects several million people worldwide resulting in as many as 150,000 deaths and around 500,000 permanent disabilities every year.
  The molecular mechanisms of thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy cardiovascular system relies on the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells) and heart cells (cardiomyocytes) to function normally.
  Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular/inflammatory diseases
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
  Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration
  Dr M Dallas, Prof G J Stephens, Dr A Bithell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  Molecular Mechanisms of Receptor and Ion Channel Regulation in Pain and Inflammation
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Receptors and ion channels are responsible for the transmission of signals across cellular membranes that regulate a plethora of biological and cellular functions.
  Modelling the cardiovascular side-effects of anaesthesia
  Prof I Bojak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Propofol is currently the anaesthetic most commonly employed in surgical operations. However, it has a variety of cardiovascular side-effects that are potentially life-threatening, in particular for fragile patients.
  Reward Processing and Depression using Neuroimaging
  Prof C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In our research group we are interested in how the brains response to reward and aversion might be a biomarker for risk to depression in adults and adolescents.
  Studying the mechanisms that cause heart failure
  Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack, and this presents a huge economic burden each year.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus.
  Maximising the efficacy of polyphenols on cardiovacular health
  Dr C Mills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cardiovascular diseases are the worlds’ leading cause of death. Dietary approaches to prevent or treat these diseases are becoming increasingly accepted.
