(ESPRC DTP) Exploiting Drosophila to identify novel causes of, and treatments for, epilepsy in human
Epilepsy is amongst the most common neurological diseases, affecting greater than 1% of the population. Clinical treatment relies on the use of a range of anti-epileptic drugs that are successful in no more than two-thirds of patients. A primary reason for this shortfall is the large number of underlying genetic mutations that are associated with epilepsy; only a handful of which have been characterised. For more information please visit MRC Doctoral Training Partnership / Projects. Application Deadline: 12 November 2021.
Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Science & Technology (GrapheneNOWNANO)
Graphene NOWNANO is a newly established Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) based on our NOWNANO programme. It builds on the world-leading expertise in the science and technology of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials at Manchester and Lancaster to offer a broad interdisciplinary CDT. PhD students will receive initial state-of-the-art training in the fundamentals of graphene/2D materials, their applications and key techniques. This is followed by a 3½ year research project in 30+ top-rated research groups across 10 disciplines/university departments (Experimental and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Pharmacy, Biomaterials, Medicine, Environment). For more information please visit the Graphene NOWNANO website.
Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine
The University of Manchester has been awarded an EPSRC/MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) for PhD studentships which offers multidisciplinary training with internationally-leading expertise in bioengineering, stem cells, extracellular matrix, inflammation biology and clinical translation. The CDT in Regenerative Medicine involves more than 50 leading research groups across the Faculties of Life Sciences, Engineering and Physical Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences. For more information please visit the CDT in Regenerative Medicine website.
Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine (MRes)
The MRes on Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine offered by the Institute of Inflammation and Repair in the Faculty of Medical & Human Sciences is a collaborative degree programme that brings together expertise from the School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and School of Material Sciences. It aims at giving the opportunity to young researchers gain experience working on an 1 year research project. The Nanomedicine lab accepts 2 MRes students each academic year. For more details on the programme and application process please visit the MRes website.
