  A multi-modal approach to deep phenotyping frailty
  Prof P Greenhaff, Prof J Gladman, Dr S Francis
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Frailty is a significant challenge to ageing individuals, of central importance to well-being and a widely accepted public health problem.
  A neuroprotective role for Schwann cell glycogen in sciatic nerve diabetic neuropathy
  Dr A Brown
Applications accepted all year round
We have established that glycogen is present in sciatic nerves of mice, the first such description; we aim to determine the potential for glycogen as an endogenous neuroprotective agent that supports axons in peripheral nerves during diabetes.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Alpha-defensin haplotypes and IgA nephropathy risk
  Prof J A L Armour, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round
The human alpha-defensin genes DEFA1 and DEFA3 encode short antimicrobial peptides that are important components of the innate immune system, and are subject to copy number variation (CNV) with individuals having between 3 and 18 copies.
  An in vivo genetic screen of lung function candidate genes using tissue specific RNAi in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr M Georgiou, Dr I Sayers
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of worldwide mortality and morbidity. Current strategies in management depend on accurate diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment.
  Bioinformatic studies of mobile DNAs in vertebrates
  Prof J F Y Brookfield, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round
44% of the human genome, and similar proportions in other vertebrate species, consists of mobile DNAs or their inactive descendants.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round
Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  Characterising Genetic and Ecotypic Diversity in the Foraminifera
  Dr C M Wade
Applications accepted all year round
The foraminifera are an important unicellular marine protist group that is used extensively for inferring past climate and sea level change.
  Characterization of a Novel Human Myokine
  Dr A Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle, in addition to its traditional role in movement in the body, is involved in regulating physiological homeostasis and disease progression in other tissues.
