  Investigating the role of Dock6 and Eogt in cardiac development and congenital heart disease.
  Dr E Noel
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Congenital heart defects are structural malformations of the heart and are the most common birth defect, affecting around 1% of live births.
  PhD in evolutionary biology - examining the evolution of interactions between species
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary biology is underpinned by models for the evolution of species and their traits. The growing body of phylogenetic information, as well as increases in computational power allows us to develop and test novel models and theories of evolution.
  Advanced in vitro and in vivo models to understand endothelial dysfunction during thrombosis generation in arteries.
  Dr M Fragiadaki, Prof P Evans
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atherosclerosis is a disease of arteries giving rise to stroke, angina and heart attacks. It is caused by the build-up of fatty deposits on the walls of the arteries causing arterial stenosis leading to restricted blood flow to the heart.
  High-throughput mechanobiology
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer research has traditionally focused upon extra- or intra-cellular biochemical signals, and their relation to cancer development and metastasis.
  Actin regulation of nuclear mechanics during DNA repair
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In eukaryotic cells, the nucleus houses the genomic material and transcription machinery that allows the cell to develop and perform its role.
  Extracellular Vesicles: small packages with a big role in bowel cancer metastasis
  Dr N J Peake, Dr L Cole, Prof C Le Maitre
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Background. Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) have poor survival rates, reflecting the difficulty in treating advanced disease.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  Efficacy testing of biomaterial delivered iPS cells in in vitro cultures systems to mimic the degenerate niche
  Prof C Le Maitre, Prof C Sammon
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability and morbidity worldwide. It is widely accepted that a major contributor to LBP is intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD).
  Investigation of the relationship between LRRK2 and α-synuclein in Parkinson’s disease.
  Dr K de Vos, Dr H Mortiboys
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor(s). Kurt De Vos (SITraN, Sheffield), Heather Mortiboys (SITraN, Sheffield), Laura Volpicelli- Daly (UAB, Alabama). Project details.
  Identification of the molecular pathways that guide zebrafish regeneration.
  Dr H Roehl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to replace tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Role of Hedgehog signalling in skeletal muscle regeneration
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscle to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of stem cells called satellite cells.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Addressing the functional significance of distinct paths to catalytic sites within the exosome
  Dr P Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exosome RNase complex contains two associated catalytic subunits, one of which has two distinct catalytic sites (Mitchell, 2014).
  Analysis of the exoribonuclease Rex1
  Dr P Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inhibition of one exosome catalytic subunit renders cells dependent upon another RNase called Rex1.
