  What can pregnancy tell us about maternal behaviour? A neurohormonal investigation
  Research Group: Brain and Cognition Research Group
  Dr J Aspell, Dr F Cardini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  To treat or not to treat: investigating the impact of depression and antidepressant use in pregnancy.
  Prof RM John
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Depression in pregnancy, often occurring in combination with anxiety and a stressful environment, increases the risk of adverse outcomes for offspring with males showing more attention deficits, cognitive problems and externalising behaviour and females tending to present with anxiety, depression and internalising symptoms.
  Sounds in the womb: fetal reactions to what they hear
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fetuses can hear from around the 23rd week of gestation. They are exposed to a variety of language and non-language sounds in the womb.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  Imperial MRC DTP PhD Studentships 2020-21

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imperial College London is offering up to 10 fully funded PhD studentships to start in 2020-21. As part of this support, funding is provided at the end of three years for a six month writing up period.
  Prevention of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Pregnant Women; Targeting Early Pregnancy Intervention to Women at Risk
  Dr S White, Dr A Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity in pregnancy increases the risk of gestational diabetes (GDM) and associated adverse outcomes. NICE guidelines recommend that all obese women have an oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks' gestation for detection of GDM.
  (MRC DTP) Delineating the mechanisms underpinning placental dysfunction in advanced maternal age
  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges, Dr S Greenwood
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK, 20% of all births occur to women over the age of 35 (defined as advanced maternal age, AMA) whilst 4% of pregnant women are over the age of 40.
  (MRC DTP) Peri-conceptional stress signalling through O-GlcNAcylation: effects on the early maternal-embryonic interface
  Prof J Aplin, Prof D Brison, Dr Peter Ruane, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular stress during the peri-conceptional period, including that caused by assisted reproductive treatment (ART), can lead to early pregnancy loss, reduced gestation or birthweight and altered postnatal growth, with short- (neurodevelopmental delay) and long- (cardiovascular and metabolic disease)-term health consequences.
  (MRC DTP) Placental vascular development in pregnancies complicated by diabetes
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone, Dr P Brownbill, Dr I Chernyaysky
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes (type 1 & 2) complicates 2-3% of pregnancies. Abnormal fetal growth is common in these pregnancies, manifest as both fetal overgrowth (macrosomia) and fetal growth restriction.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
