PhD, MPhil, MD Full-time, Part-time Area

Studying human neuropsychiatric disease in DLG2 deficient human neurons

This PhD project in Medicine tries to understand DLG2’s role during neural development and in mature neurons using variety of techniques.

Project

PhD in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences: Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents

This PhD project will pursue the design, synthesis and biological evaluation of small synthetic molecules that manipulate the immune system to eliminate cancer cells.

Project

Stem cell transplant efficacy in Parkinson’s disease

This project focuses on developing the in vivo rodent models used for transplantation to determine whether additional factors could influence the development and/or function of the graft. 

Project

Synthesis of Microcarriers for Focal Drug Delivery to the Brain

The aim of this project is to produce an injectable biohybrid scaffold capable of releasing a range of potential therapeutics in a sustained manner over a period of weeks or months.

Project

Discovering zinc signalling mechanisms to prevent breast cancer progression

This project aims to substantiate a model for integrated zinc signalling in cells, confirming the exact role of different zinc transporters and relating the findings to the fundamental biological effects of cellular zinc.

Project

Understanding how age and gender influence the development of Alzheimer’s disease

This project seeks to understand the inter-relationship between age and gender and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Project

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.

Project

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.

Project

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.

Project

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.

Project

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.

Project

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.

Project

A biosensor for the rapid detection of antibiotic resistant tuberculosis in nomadic African populations

This project will advance the development of a real time (15 min), portable, low cost, simple to use assay capable of diagnosing the disease in remote locations in Africa.

Project

Characterising the interaction of coagulation and innate immunity in people being treated for bleeding disorder haemophilia A

This project will determine the mechanisms of this treatment on coagulation and immune system by in vitro tests and clinical samples.

Project

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.

Project

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.
