  TRIB3 at the interface of metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue
  Dr H Wilson, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity drives chronic inflammation and immune activation. This results in dysregulated metabolism, insulin resistance linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  Bacterial-derived magnetosomes as nanocarriers for cancer-killing oncolytic viruses.
  Dr M Muthana, Dr F Howard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysfunctional cellular processes that are the markers of neoplasms provide the ideal environment for viral infection including sustained proliferation and resistance to cell death.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  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.
  Development of a novel immunotoxin
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Immunotoxins represent a form of immunotherapy whereby antibodies are used to target a toxin, usually to cancer or infected host cells.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Tetraspanin structure and function

  Investigating the molecular mechanism of inflammatory bowel disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohn’s disease together with ulcerative colitis (UC) are the two main variations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 2.5-3 million people in Europe are affected by inflammatory bowel disease with a direct healthcare cost of 4.5-6 billion Euro per year.
