  Learning from the past to predict and reduce the risk of infectious disease pandemics
  Dr F Perez-Reche, Prof N Strachan
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organisation reports that infectious diseases cause 63% of childhood deaths and 48% of premature deaths. There is the ongoing risk of epidemics and pandemics that can cause widespread morbidity and mortality (Spanish flu, ebola, SARS, E.
  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Effects of essential amino acid (EAA) restriction on cognitive function and ageing
  Prof M Delibegovic, Dr B Platt, Dr N Mody
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The developed world is currently facing a significant increase in average lifespan, with the implication of increased age-related diseases including various cancers, dementia, type 2 diabetes, cataracts and osteoporosis in our aged population.
  Natural chemicals as anti-aging compounds
  Dr A Kolb
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Aging is a complex, multi-facetted process during which key parameters in an organism change gradually, resulting in an overall functional decline.
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  How do cancer cells manipulate protein production rates using different levels of gene expression to deliver proliferative or secretory phenotypes?
  Dr C Miller
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world-leading centres for cancer research. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics and in vivo models of cancer.
  KESS2 East PhD in Medicine: Exploring a genetically targeted therapeutic approach for adenomatous polyposis syndromes in 3D organoid cell models
  Prof J R Sampson, Dr L Thomas
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
In collaboration with the Wales Gene Park (WGP) and our partner company Cellesce, this studentship will exploit existing organoid resources within the Inherited Tumour Syndromes Research (ITSR) Group in addition to establishing, characterising and expanding new lines from material obtained by the ITSR group during the course of the study.
