Showing 1 to 10 of 16
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  How Chlamydia uses disorder to invade the host cell (BLUMENSCHEINTU19SF)
  Dr T Blumenschein
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) lack a single well-defined conformation and are instead flexible, exploring multiple possible conformations.
  On-site assembly of the actin cortex in semi-synthetic cells to control cell mechanics and behaviour
  Dr Y Elani
Applications accepted all year round
Funded by the Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme in Cellular Bionics – 3 year PhD studentships. Supervisors. Dr Elani Yuval | Dr Nick Brooks | Dr Marina Kuimova.
  Molecular mechanisms controlling cardiac fibroblast proliferation during cardiac fibrosis
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
Applicants are invited for a new self-funded PhD studentship to study the molecular mechanisms of cardiac fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is a significant global health problem associated with nearly all forms of heart disease.
  How does the vascular matrix environment influence platelet activation?
  Dr S Calaminus
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020
The platelet is a blood cell that plays a key role in the prevention of bleeding. For platelets to form a clot or thrombus effectively, they must rearrange their actin cytoskeleton to withstand high shear stress from blood flow in the arteries.
  The molecular mechanisms of organelle transport by motor protein myosin-V
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round
Organelle transport is essential for cellular function and survival, and these processes are disrupted in many common diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Developing a microscope system for simultaneous imaging of cells in multiple Z-dimensions
  Prof R May, Prof D Hodson
Application Deadline: 6 May 2019
Research interests/description of main research theme. AIMS. This project aims to develop and test a novel microscope that will enable truly simultaneous imaging of several axial ‘slices’ (Z-sections) through a live sample, something that is not currently possible on existing commercial microscopes.
  Novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular smooth muscle cells
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
A self-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of Bristol to study novel anti-inflammatory mechanisms of cyclic-AMP in vascular disease.
  Small G proteins and their effectors as therapeutic targets in cancer
  Dr D Owen
Applications accepted all year round
For the majority of cancers the acquisition of invasive and metastatic characteristics leads to incurable disease in the host.
