Red blood cells and phagocytosis: how the immune system sorts new cells from old.PhD in Mathematics (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)

Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£15,009 p.a. for 2019/20, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees

This PhD will investigate, using a unique combination of experiments and simulations, how old red blood cells are cleared by our immune systems via phagocytosis. This has implications for a variety of conditions such as sickle-cell anaemia and thrombosis. Unlike most PhDs, this is an excellent opportunity to learn both the experimental and modelling sides of modern research. Full training in both these areas will form an important part of this project.

The neural circuit basis of spatial memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease. PhD in Medical Studies (MRC GW4 BioMed DTP)

Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£15,009 p.a. for 2019/20, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees

The loss of memories of places is an early symptom of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These “spatial memories” are generated by networks of space coding neurons, called place cells, in a key brain structure for memory called the hippocampus. This project will use cutting-edge in vivo brain imaging to discover how place cells become disrupted in AD, and attempt to treat this using drugs that target AD pathology.

Understanding how altered GABA signalling in the brain’s master clock contributes to circadian rhythm disruption in Alzheimer’s disease. PhD in Medical Studies (MRC GW4 BioMed DTP)

Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£15,009 p.a. for 2019/20, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees

Circadian rhythm times our sleep and its disruption can exacerbate Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology. The brain’s master clock uses GABA for circadian timekeeping. GABA activity is affected in AD, but the effect on clock function is unknown. We will study how GABA drives excitability in healthy and AD mouse clock neurons, to restore clock function and improve quality of life.
