Meddygaeth

The School of Medicine offers research degrees in the medical disciplines such as cancer, immunology, infection, immunity, neurosciences, mental health and population medicine.

The School of Medicine offers PhD, MD & MPhil in all medical disciplines, including Cancer & Genetics, Epidemiology, Infection & Immunity, Psychiatry & Neuroscience, and Experimental Medicine.


Research in the School of Medicine is focused on interdisciplinary themes, each of which spans the spectrum from basic science to clinical practice in either hospital or community settings. 

The underlying aim of the School is to ensure the optimum ‘translation’ of fundamental knowledge to patient benefit.

Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements.

Each of the School’s Research Institutes embodies this philosophy.

PhD

Undertaking a PhD can be an exciting and rewarding opportunity to explore something in depth, amongst field-leading researchers with truly firstclass facilities. Candidates are required to make an original contribution to knowledge by conducting an independent research project.

MD

The research project will usually have a clinical focus, but other aspects of medical and health care provision may form the basis of the research topic. Applicants are usually required to hold an MBBCH degree or equivalent. Candidates are usually registered with the General Medical Council.

MPhil

MPhil is a stand-alone programme that allows candidates to undertake a research programme over one year. Sometimes, this can be an intermediate step before registering on a subsequent PhD programme; depending on how the project develops.

Skills developed

Students will benefit from gaining a range of transferable and professional skills during their research study. Depending on the project, these may include:

  • laboratory skills
  • statistical analysis
  • qualitative analysis
  • quantitative analysis
  • qualitative interviewing skills
  • focus group facilitation
  • presenting skills (scientists, the general public)
  • academic publication and grant writing.

Asesiad

Thesis (80,000 words for PhD, 60,000 words for MD, and 50,000 words for MPhil) and viva voce examination.

Our research is focused on interdisciplinary themes, each of which spans the spectrum from basic science to clinical practice in either hospital or community settings. Our key research themes include:

  • Cancer and Genetics
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences
  • Population Medicine.

Our underlying aim is to ensure the optimum ‘translation’ of fundamental knowledge to patient benefit.

Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements.

Each of our research divisions embodies this philosophy.

Mae'r prosiect PhD hwn mewn Meddygaeth yn ceisio deall rôl y DLG2 yn ystod datblygiad niwral a niwronau aeddfed gan ddefnyddio amrywiaeth o dechnegau.

Integration of genetic and functional data to identify drug targets and enhance risk prediction

Integrating brain expression and protein-protein interaction data with genomic data identified a network of immune-related genes implicated in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) susceptibility.

Characterising DNA damage repair in Huntington’s disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder and results from the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons within the Substantia nigra pars compacta.

Detecting dysfunction in the single-cell gene networks underlying Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder and results from the selective loss of dopaminergic neurons within the Substantia nigra pars compacta.

Microglial NFAT signalling and Alzheimer’s disease genetic risk networks

In this project, you will develop skills in molecular biological, cell culture, genome biology and bioinformatics.

The molecular basis of cognitive flexibility

This project examines transcriptomes in key brain regions at critical periods to determine the molecular bases of flexible behaviour.

Investigating peroxisome dysregulation in Alzheimer’s disease

In this project you will first determine how peroxisomes respond to the specific pathogenic proteins associated with AD in vivo.

Targeting LAG3+ T cells for Cancer Immunotherapy

This study will look at the control of adaptive immunity in health and inflammation by human blood and mucosal gamma/delta T cells.

Alzheimer’s disease: Understanding the interaction of microglia risk genes

The aim of this project is to understand the interdependence of specific risk alleles and highlight the possibility of adjunctive therapies targeting different ‘arms’ of the immune cells to treat the disease.

Investigating the childhood neurodevelopmental origins of adult mental illness

This PhD utilises new data generated by a Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award between Cardiff and Bristol Universities to test hypotheses on why child NDDs show links with later adult mental illness.

Role of a mouse ortholog of CR1 (crry) in the 3xTG model of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)

In order to explore further roles of Crry, we have generated and established a 3xTG/Crry-/- colony, but have not yet had resources to explore further the impact of Crry deficiency in this model.

Flexible vectors for immunotherapy against cancer and pathogens

This project aims to determine pathways that can drive the growth of particular types of NK and T cells that are optimised to provide better protection from disease. We will use cytomegalovirus and leukaemic cells as systems of analysis.

Enhancing immune stimulation for novel anti-cancer viral vaccine vectors

We will combine cutting-edge proteomics with molecular virology and immunology to determine how HCMV induces such strong responses, enabling us to generate optimised vaccine vectors.

Optimizing adult mental health outcomes in children with neurodevelopmental problems: interplay of social and genetic factors

This PhD project provides a unique opportunity to develop advanced methodological and analytic skills in the field of developmental psychopathology.

School experiences in children at high genetic risk of mental health problems

This project will provide important insights into why children with a genomic disorder struggle in school.

Molecular mechanisms of CRISPR Cas9 nickase-induced CAG/CTG repeat contraction: Implications for gene editing in expanded repeat disorders

The aim of this project is to understand how contractions occur at the molecular level such that we can make a potential gene editing-based treatment safer and more efficient.
