  Role of primary cilia in skeletal muscle stem cells and muscle regeneration.
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary cilia are ancient organelles present at the surface of many cell types in vertebrates. In recent years, they have been shown to play essential roles in relaying sensory and signalling information from the environment to the cell.
  Mechanisms of cilia biogenesis and signalling
  Dr B Tanos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cilia are sensory organelles that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli from the environment. They arise from centrioles and function as “antennae” that receive and integrate extracellular signals.
  Role of cilia in oncogenic signaling and drug resistance
  Dr B Tanos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary cilia are microtubule-based antennae that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli. Although cilia house a number of oncogenic molecules (including Smoothened, KRAS, EGFR, and PDGFR), their precise role in cancer remains unclear.
  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.
  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.
  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).
