Showing 1 to 10 of 25
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round
Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Assessing temporal stability of bioscience evidence base
  Prof J Koricheva, Prof E Kulinskaya
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
World-class bioscience is critically dependent on statistical methodologies allowing synthesis of available bioscience data for generating new biological understanding and development of policies and management strategies.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Controlling the switch between centrosomes and cilia: how cells prevent ciliogenesis when it’s not required
  Dr C Wilkinson, Dr D Mann
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Cilia are hair-like organelles that project from the surface of many cells. They act as signalling masts, housing receptors that are essential for communication and environmental sensing.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round
The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Dynamics of flocking in birds: the role of individual recognition and social learning
  Dr S Portugal, Dr E Leadbeater
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, who is positioned where in the flock, and who you want to be flying beside.
  Evolutionary Theory: Exploring the role of intragenomic conflict in the evolution of molecular mechanisms
  Dr F Ubeda
Applications accepted all year round
I research how genes, individuals, and social structures can evolve making use of mathematical models.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round
“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Exploring the effects of decanoic acid on ion channel function and synaptic network activity
  Dr P Chen, Prof R S B Williams
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Most anti epileptic drugs modify synaptic transmission or neuronal excitability and act on ionotropic receptors for the main excitatory (glutamate) or inhibitory (GABA) neurotransmitters or ion channels within the mammalian CNS.
  Genetics of stroke: Determining the underlying pathological reasons for stroke and comparing and contrasting those findings between Caucasian and South Asians.
  Prof P Sharma
Applications accepted all year round
Stroke is the commonest cause of disability, second largest cause of dementia and the third biggest cause of death in the UK. However, by 2050 the World Health Organisation has estimated that 80% of the worlds’ burden of stroke will lie between India and China.
