  Development of a process to valorise lignin
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr L Horsfall, Dr D Clarke
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
When fossil fuel reserves are exhausted, essential by-products of refining will no longer be available. Since these aromatic chemicals are used in many processes including the manufacture of plastics, detergents, fertilisers, pharmaceuticals and synthetic fibres it is vital that alternative sources become available.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: 3D modelling of changes in genome architecture in development and disease
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof E Schirmer, Dr D Marenduzzo
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Defects in spatial genome organisation have recently been linked to human disease and the National Institutes of Health, USA director speculated that most as yet unidentified disease alleles will occur in non-coding genome regions.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Connecting Molecular Profiles to Phenotype: A Proteomic Resource for Assigning Cell Cycle and Senescent States
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr T Ly, Dr A Lindqvist
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. A hallmark of cancer is aberrant cell cycle control leading to pathological cell proliferation. Cell cycle progression is controlled by key kinases, such as cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and polo-like kinases (PLKs).
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Exploiting large-scale exome sequence data for disease locus detection
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Knott, Dr P Navarro, Prof C Haley, Prof J Wilson
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been effective at beginning to reveal the role of common genetic variants in the control of diseases and underlying traits.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Precision Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof L Regan
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. There are many examples in which disease or injury causes damage to a tissue and cells. must be replaced to restore function.
  Novel extremophilic metalloprotease for consumer product application
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD project will identify and characterise novel protease enzymes from extremophiles for use in processes and products of interest to the industrial collaborator Unilever.
  Yeast engineering for enhanced triterpenoid production
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser, Dr S Wallace
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD is a joint research project between the Rosser Group (http://rosser.bio.ed.ac.uk) at the University of Edinburgh and Unilever.
