  Development of treatment for Osteoarthritis by blocking metalloproteinases
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MMP13 (collagenase 3) plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA) because MMP13 preferentially cleaves type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and both MMP13 levels and enzymatic activity are enhanced in OA.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Analysis of Gene Interactions in Neurodegeneration
  Dr M Taylor, Prof A Rosser
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The striatum is a key component of the basal ganglia in the forebrain. One of its important roles is in the control of voluntary movement.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Regulation of stem cell biology by RNA-binding proteins during fly development
  Dr S Lopez de Quinto, Prof H White-Cooper
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although transcription is the first step in eukaryotic gene expression, many post-transcriptional events determine the final fate of RNA molecules and impose additional complexity to gene expression.
  (BBSRC DTP) Complexity of heart development arising from evolution of signalling systems
  Dr K Hentges, Dr D Talavera, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein families grow or shrink in size during evolution due to gene duplication and gene loss events. These events provide opportunities for protein function specialisation or innovation.
  EASTBIO: Emergence of functional polarity in a tubular epithelium
  Dr B Denholm, Prof A Jarman
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelial tubes are the conduit through which life-sustaining gases, nutrients and fluids are transported. But they do more than simply convey material to and fro – they carry out vital roles in modifying the material passing through.
  The epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of adult stem cell pluripotency during regeneration.
  Prof A Aboobaker
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As animals grow and mature all of their cells, tissues and organs must be maintained by the proliferation and differentiation of adult stem cells.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  *EASTBIO* Control of the ParaHox genes in chordate evolution and development
  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
  Dr D E K Ferrier, Prof J K Dale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulatory elements of these genes in both the invertebrate sea squirt Ciona intestinalis and the vertebrate Gallus gallus (chicken).
