GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership PhD projects in the School of Medicine
The GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership is awarding up to 19 studentships in 2018, aligned with the themes of Infection, Immunity and Repair; Neuroscience and Mental Health; and Population Health.
The GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership places a strong emphasis on cross-cutting skills priorities (quantitative skills, interdisciplinary skills and in vivo skills), and may advertise projects outside these themes. We welcome applications from non-medical backgrounds and can fund additional training to assist discipline conversion.
Most studentships will be 3.5 years full-time or up to 7 years part-time, and can be longer where additional training is undertaken.
Projects are being advertised across the partnership in a range of disciplines. Projects available for entry 2018 within our School of Medicine:
- Control of CD4+ T cell responses by human gamma/delta T cells
- Dissecting the impact of L-selectin proteolysis on T lymphocyte dependent virus immunity
- Optimising expansion of CD8+ T cells for immunotherapy
- Mechanisms controlling the switch between the pro- and anti-fibrotic functions of the long non-coding natural anti-sense to hyaluronan synthase 2
- Understanding how C-type lectin-like receptors collaborate to clear fungal infections
- Advanced virotherapies for immuno-oncolytic applications
- Ehmt1 and the epigenetic control of genomic imprinting in neurodevelopmental disorders
- Chromatin dynamics in Huntington's disease
- Mitochondria and peroxisome crosstalk in neurons: How and why?
