The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Identification of cell types and subtypes within tissues by mass spectrometry imaging
  Dr A McMahon, Prof K Williams, Dr N Thacker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will bring together the capabilities of the University’s Imaging research group, and the extensive mass spectrometry imaging facilities of the Medicine Discovery Catapult at Alderley Park, at Waters at their Wilmslow site and using a DESI-imaging mass spectrometer, placed by Waters, at the University.
  (MRC DTP) Insulin-mediated antimicrobial secretion from pancreatic acinar cells regulates the gut microbiome and barrier function: Link between diabetes and severity of acute pancreatitis
  Dr J Bruce, Prof I Roberts, Dr J Pennock
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute pancreatitis is a serious and sometimes fatal inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Severe cases are characterised by infected pancreatic necrosis, sepsis and multiple organ failure, which increases mortality and prolongs critical care occupancy.

  Dr R Unwin, Dr S Clark, Dr C Lawrence
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has grown to be the leading cause of death in the UK, and yet it stands alone amongst the UKs biggest killers as having no disease-modifying treatment.
  Understanding differential responses to retinoid treatments in human health and disease: a precision medicine approach
  Prof R Watson, Dr A Langton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans retinoic acid (t-RA), are endogenous signalling molecules derived from vitamin A that influence a variety of cellular processes through mediation of transcription events in the cell nucleus.
  (MRC DTP) Imaging early blood-brain barrier dysfunction in dementia
  Dr I Schiessl, Prof S Allan, Mr B Dickie, Dr L Parkes
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) actively regulates delivery of nutrients to the brain, as well as protecting the brain from microbes and toxins present in the blood.
  (MRC DTP) Zinc deficiency: a potential contributor to post-stroke complications
  Dr C Lawrence, Prof D Brough, Prof C Smith, Prof S Allan
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stroke remains a leading cause of death and disability worldwide with limited treatment options. In addition to the immediate and common symptoms of stroke such as limb weakness and speech problems, stroke patients often develop complications.
  The impact of zinc deficiency on Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr C Lawrence, Prof D Brough
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In addition to memory problems, people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) also experience ‘non-memory’ behavioural symptoms including depression, anxiety, and agitation.

  Dr P Kasher, Prof S Allan, Dr A Parry-Jones, Dr H Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations (cAVM) relate to a spectrum of conditions associated with blood vessel abnormalities of the brain [1].
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.

  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

British Heart Foundation 4-Year PhD Studentships 2020. Our British Heart Foundation (BHF) 4-year PhD programme provides tailored doctoral training for postgraduate students with an interest in cardiovascular sciences.
  How do phosphodiesterases contribute to the pathophysiology of heart failure?
  Prof A Trafford, Dr K Dibb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure (HF) remains a major cause of death with worse 5-year survival than all forms of cancer combined. This project seeks to understand the mechanisms that underlie two important contributing factors to death in HF patients; i) contractile failure and, ii) the increased propensity for arrhythmias.
