We have 66 wellcome PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Fully funded PhD scholarships available in the Wellcome Doctoral Training Centre for Public Health Economics and Decision Science (PHEDS)

We are seeking bright and enthusiastic graduates who want to make a difference to population health and have a background in disciplines including the health, social, mathematical or computer sciences. Read more

The use of life course epidemiology to support the experimental characterisation of genetic variation

Project Background. There has been a rapid expansion in the generation of genetic sequence data over the last decade. Understanding the potential relevance of genetic mutations to human health remains challenging. Read more

The genetic map of human molecular phenotypes

Rationale. Genome wide associations studies (GWASs) have discovered many genetic associations with a large range of human traits, but the functional consequences of GWAS signals often remain elusive, as most GWAS signals reside in non-coding genomic regions. Read more

Estimating the global cancer burden due to low levels of physical activity

Rationale. Around 40% of all cancers are thought to be avoidable by modification of lifestyle factors. Obesity has been found to be a risk factor for several cancers and was estimated to have caused around 3.6% of all new cancers which occurred in 2012. Read more

Discovering off-target side-effects and drug repurposing candidates using expression perturbation data

Rationale. Mendelian Randomization (MR) is a genetic epidemiology method which utilises variants sourced from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to assess causality between risk/protective factors and disease outcomes in a manner less biased to observational studies(1). Read more

Gut Microbiome, Immune Response and Risk of Neuropsychiatric Conditions

Rationale. Low-grade systemic inflammation is associated with risk of neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, autism, with emerging genetic evidence suggesting a potentially causal role of inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin 6 (IL-6) in these conditions (1, 2). Read more

How does parental education increase risk to ADHD in the offspring?

Rationale. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic neurodevelopmental condition, characterised by persistent difficulties in the areas of attention span/impulse control. Read more

Identifying DNA methylation signatures of prostate cancer progression and mortality among patients with clinically confirmed, localised disease at baseline in a large prospective clinical trial

Rationale. Prostate Cancer (PCa) is a leading cause of male mortality, with 336,000 deaths worldwide each year (1). Although most PCa cases are indolent, slow-growing, and tend not to progress, a subset of PCa cases are more aggressive and will progress to metastases, treatment resistance and death. Read more
