  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  A molecular analysis of centrioles, centrosomes and cilia
  Prof J Raff
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrioles are barrel-shaped structures that organise the assembly of two crucial cell organelles. centrosomes and cilia.
  The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development
  Dr K Hentges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated.
  Inhibitors of cilia and Hedgehog signaling: from phenotype to mechanistic understanding
  Prof S Hoogendoorn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway is a major contributor to embryonic development, and tissue homeostasis and stem cell maintenance in children and adults.
  Reconstitution of a ciliary rootlet for cryoEM structure determination.
  Dr A Carter
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cilia are found on all cells and have functions ranging from receiving signals to moving mucus out of the lungs. At their feet are basal bodies and below these are long striated filaments known as rootlets.
  Using the fly kidney to develop new treatments for genetic kidney diseases
  Prof A Ong, Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polycystic kidney disease is the most common hereditary cause of kidney failure in man. It comprises a spectrum of diseases of which Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common form in adults and Nephronophthisis (NPHP) the most common form in children.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
