Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have the potential to revolutionise the field of solar cells. Their efficiency in the last decades has increased by an order of magnitude, which is unprecedented in this field.
There is an urgent need for further treatment options for the blinding condition of Glaucoma Unfortunately with age there is a progressive loss of cells (Trabecular meshwork) from the eye’s outflow pathway which is even more severe with patients with glaucoma.
Are you keen to progress research in glycoscience at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics, in the first four years of your research career and based outside the UK? Do you want to further your career and attain a PhD in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?.
Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of organs and thus lead to the normal phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases.
Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo. Our aim is to obtain a mechanistic insight into the birth of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in embryonic development and determine the contribution of these cells to the emerging hematopoietic and immune systems of the embryo.
As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
To maintain the blood system, billions of blood cells need to be generated on a daily basis. This is achieved by blood stem cells, immature blood cells that are able to self-renew and to generate progenitors that are committed to differentiate into mature blood cells.
