  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  RVC PhD: Gene therapy for cartilage regeneration in osteoarthritis
  Dr S Roberts, Prof A Pitsillides, Dr J Dudhia
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in humans. By 2050 it is estimated that 40 million people worldwide will be severely disabled by this disease.
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional and structural analysis of RBBP5: a histone tail modifier essential for development, disease and healthy ageing
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks, Dr A J Whitmarsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome is the blueprint of any living system. However, it is the regulation of gene expression that enables life. For transcription to take place, the molecular machinery involved has to access genomic DNA.
  Using zebrafish to model Facioscapulohumeral muscle dystrophy and screen for drugs to enhance muscle stem cell health
  Dr R Knight, Dr P Zammit
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) is the 3rd most common muscle dystrophy leading to progressive muscle weakness of facial, shoulder and limb muscles and so impairing quality of life.
  International PhD Programme Fellowships in Biomedicine

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) is recruiting highly motivated and talented students to its International PhD programme.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
