Showing 31 to 40 of 389
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli, Dr A Stevens, Dr C Pinali
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) Chitinase-like proteins (CLP) as first responders to infection and injury: understanding CLP-glycosaminoglycan interactions
  Prof T Day, Prof J Allen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Parasitic worms (helminths) infect most mammals including a third of the human population. Although rarely causing death, these parasites cause significant morbidity in part by the damage they inflict while migrating through the tissues.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing enhanced production and separation techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Dr J Winterburn, Dr Peter Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of a toolkit of bi-substrate modulators of signalling pathways
  Dr L Tabernero, Prof D Procter, Dr S Butterworth
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Protein phosphatases control key events in cell physiology and adaptation to the environment, and are critically involved in fundamental biological processes such as development, cell division and homeostasis.
  (BBSRC DTP) Elucidating the responses to nascent protein misfolding and aggregation stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof S Hubbard, Prof M Ashe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this study is to characterize the proteins that aggregate during nascent protein misfolding and to investigate how cells mitigate the damaging effects of aggregate formation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting plant diversity to make a new biomaterials
  Prof S Turner, Prof V Allan, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics synthesised from fossil fuels.
  (BBSRC DTP) Extracellular regulation of BMP signalling in development and disease
  Prof H Ashe, Prof C Baldock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) pathway, one of the major cell signalling pathways, is important for development of nearly all human organs and tissues.
  (BBSRC DTP) Factors educating myeloid cell progenitors in the bone marrow of wild mice
  Prof K Else, Dr J Grainger, Dr I Mair
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A multitude of factors such as infection history (Askenase et al. 2015), microbiota composition (Khosravi et al. 2014, Balmer et al.
  (BBSRC DTP) How are transport vesicles recognized in the secretory pathway?
  Prof M Lowe, Dr L Harris, Prof A Nicolaou
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The secretory pathway is fundamentally important, responsible for the production of numerous proteins including growth factors, hormones, neurotransmitters, and the proteins that make up our skin and bones.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
