  Building the skull – normal and abnormal development
  Prof A Wilkie, Dr S Twigg
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using a combination of patient samples and mouse models, we study the causes and developmental origins of skull malformation. The work ranges from scanning human genome sequences for new mutations, to use of genome editing and single cell transcriptomics to model the developmental causes of these malformations in mice.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Computational Functional Genomics
  Assoc Prof G Lunter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in building computational models to understand and predict the functional consequences of mutations in the (human) genome.
  De Novo Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  Development and Maturation of B cell Mediated Immune Responses
  Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study the cellular interactions and molecular events that lead to the development of high affinity and protective antibodies during humoral immune responses.
  Enhancing tumour specific immune responses for the treatment of ovarian cancer
  Prof V Cerundolo, Prof A Ahmed
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In spite of the relatively low tumour mutational burden (TMB), a significant proportion of ovarian cancers has been shown to harbour tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) with prognostic significance.
  Identification of key determinants affecting the quality of human Cancer specific cytotoxic T cells
  Prof T Dong
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective of my group’s research is to focus on the functional aspects of the antigen specific T cells and study the factors affecting Cytotoxic T cells in controlling cancer development.
  Immunity to Influenza and Ebola viruses
  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).
  Integrative Computational Biology and Machine Learning
  Dr A Sahakyan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Sahakyan Group, we strive to make computational biology maximally independent from empirical experimental data, by basing our models and predictions on genomic sequences and core biological mechanisms.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
