neurodegenerative PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

We have 28 neurodegenerative PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students

Last chance to apply

Early detection of neurodegenerative disorders using artificial intelligence

A fantastic opportunity for a PhD student to complete an exciting project which aims to utilize vision deep learning for early detection of neurodegenerative disorders. Read more

Charting new neuronal survival pathways in Parkinson’s disease

The Neurodegenerative and Lysosomal Disease Laboratory is interested in uncovering the unknown molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly in the development of Parkinson’s disease and Batten disease. Read more

Applied optogenetics to study the influence of neuronal activity on neurodegeneration

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant and growing challenge to global health, affecting millions worldwide. Despite extensive research efforts, the underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration are not fully understood, and there is a critical lack of effective treatments. Read more

Exploring the role of SVA retrotransposons in the risk and progression of motor neurone disease

We and others have demonstrated that SVA retrotransposons are modulators of gene function, influencing gene expression, methylation, splicing and 3D chromatin architectures, particularly in the field of neurodegeneration. Read more

Understanding the underlying pathological mechanisms to find a cure for Batten disease

The Neurodegenerative and Lysosomal Disease Laboratory is interested in the molecular and cellular basis of neurodegenerative disease, particularly how lysosome dysfunction influences the development of Batten disease and Parkinson’s disease. Read more

Systemic infections accelerate tau spreading by promoting glial activation

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease, with a complex biology. In this PhD project, we aim to explore the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying tau pathology. Read more

Vascularising human mini-brains in a dish

Blood vessels play a pivotal role in brain development and function. They promote tissue growth and survival by supplying nutrients and oxygen to surrounding tissues, signals to progenitor populations, as well as guiding neuronal migration. Read more

AI-enhanced dementia prevention: precision risk reduction using large language models, NIHR Funded PhD in Medical Studies Ref: 5100

Location. Department of Health and Community Sciences, St Luke’s Campus, Exeter. The University of Exeter’s Department of Health and Community Sciences is inviting applications for a PhD studentship funded by the NIHR to commence on the 23rd September 2024. Read more
