  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Reprogramming of life and death pathways in cancer through unfavourable interactions with healthy cells
  Dr F Spill, Dr D Tennant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells utilise intracellular molecular networks to perform all their essential functions. These functions include the processing of food and generation of energy to live, grow and divide.
  Investigating differentiation processes in normal and tumoral cells which affect phenotypic heterogeneity and stemness
  Dr P Ordonez Moran, Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding tissue renewal in health and disease using the intestine as a model system to study adult stem cell biology for a therapeutic benefit.
  Identifying mechanisms regulating collective migration of embryonic progenitor cells
  Dr M Smutny, Prof M Balasubramanian, Dr D Köster
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collective cell migration plays a fundamental role during development in the embryo and wound healing in adults, and is also a hallmark of invasive cancer cells [1].
  Regulation of cell cycle progression in skeletal muscle stem cells
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscles to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of adult skeletal muscle stem cells called satellite cells.
  Characterisation of the role of Panx1/Panx2 in primary endothelial cells
  Dr M Boumechache
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pannexins are a family of proteins that are evolutionary related to the gap-junction forming proteins, innexins (1). Three members have been identified, Panx1, Panx2 and Panx3, and they show distinct tissue distribution.
  Normal and Leukaemic Blood Stem/Progenitor Cell Biology
  Prof P Vyas, Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory studies the mechanisms regulating normal blood stem and progenitor cell differentiation and how these are perturbed in blood cancers such as Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS).
  Normal and Leukaemic Blood Stem/Progenitor Cell Biology
  Prof P Vyas, Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory studies the mechanisms regulating normal blood stem and progenitor cell differentiation and how these are perturbed in blood cancers such as Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS).
  Barcoding atherosclerotic plaque cells: single cell sequencing to reveal heterogeneity and functional impact of atherosclerotic plaque cells
  Dr J Sluimer
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A position for a PhD-student (gross €2325—€2972 per month) is available in dr. Sluimer’s team in the experimental vascular Pathology Dept.
  Understanding how immune cells support metastasis by “de-constructing” the tumour microenvironment
  Dr L Ombrato, Prof F Balkwill
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, affecting 1 in 8 women during the course of their lifetime. Despite advances in the treatment of the primary tumour, metastatic disease remains largely uncurable, highlighting urgent clinical unmet needs.
  Meals for macrophages – investigating how macrophages engulf and process dying cells in vivo
  Dr I Evans, Dr P Elks, Dr S Johnston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical role for phagocytic cells such as macrophages is the engulfment and subsequent degradation of dying cells and debris. Failure to clear targets such as apoptotic cells can lead to damaging autoimmune conditions and immune cell dysfunction (Morioka et al., 2019; Roddie et al., 2019).
  Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo
  Prof M DeBruijn
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
