Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall
School of Biomedical Sciences
Dr R Richter
6 January 2019
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.
Complex network control of stem cell derived cultures
Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"In order to create a next generation of interfaces between prosthetic devices and the nervous system or to create next generation of intelligent robots – hybrids between artificial and biological systems, it is necessary to understand the principles that allow biological networks to achieve control of bodies.
Diatoms for the efficient trapping of solar energy
