Understanding the causes of individual variation in the rate of ageing is a major topic in gerontology and evolutionary biology with clear application to human health.
  Tiny beetle with a chemical weapon: Do flea beetles use mustard oils against predators and pathogens?
  Dr F Beran, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Applying AI to quantifying gait and joint loading in a mouse model for knee osteoarthritis using biplanar X-Ray videography, machine learning and force recordings
  Dr K D'Aout, Dr Y Zheng, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019
