  Advancing homology-directed repair driven CRISPR technologies in zebrafish
  Dr R Richardson, Dr R Kelsh, Dr C L Hammond
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rise of CRISPR technology for targeted genome editing has led to huge advancements in the ways we can study gene function and create animal models, particularly in highly genetically tractable model organisms such as the zebrafish.
  Combatting brain and body ageing through exercise
  Prof H Piggins, Dr K Ellacott, Prof A E Pickering
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is popularly accepted that the way to a long life is through regular exercise, good sleeping habits and a healthy diet.
  Divergent trajectories of cortical development regulated by differential NMDA receptor populations
  Dr MC Ashby, Dr P Anastasiades
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maturation of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) early in life is key to the higher cognitive functions of mammalian brain, such as complex and emotional decision making.
  Fly, mouse and computational modelling of the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on clock neuron excitabilit
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves amyloid-B and tau accumulation resulting in memory, sleep and circadian rhythm loss. How this occurs is unknown hampering the development of effective AD drugs.
  Genetic risk factors underlying impaired cognitive flexibility and neural plasticity in psychiatric disorders.
  Prof J Mellor, Dr MC Ashby
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Prof Jack Mellor (Bristol), Jeremy Hall (Cardiff), Dr Michael Ashby (Bristol), Prof Lawrence Wilkinson (Cardiff). Cian O’Donnell (Bristol.
  Investigation of transdifferentiation of macrophages following cardiac injury in adult zebrafish
  Dr R Richardson, Dr D Paul
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate unexpected gene expression in cardiac macrophages that suggests these cells may undergo transdifferentiation during repair and regeneration of the heart.
  Linking age-related joint degradation to diet by bone metabolism and SUMOylation
  Dr C L Hammond, Dr T Craig, Dr D Paul
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) affects a majority of people over 65 leading to loss of mobility and quality of life. OA is multifactorial with genetic, mechanical and inflammatory factors playing a role.
