Analysing the differentiation and function of the neurons damaged in Huntington's Disease

Summary. Striatal medium spiny neurons (MSNs) bear the brunt of pathology in Huntington’s disease (HD). You will use a range of in vitro and in vivo cell, molecular genetic and whole animal techniques to dissect how the transcription factors FoxP1 and Mef2C function in MSNs differentiation. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Dynamics of neurogenesis during spinal cord regeneration

About 1200 people a year are left paralysed in the UK due to a Spinal Cord Injury (or SCI). This is because injuries involving the central nervous system (CNS) have poor capacity to repair or regenerate, thus resulting in a permanent loss of function. Read more

Growth factor isoforms in neural and pancreatic beta cell differentiation

Disorders in which specific cells malfunction and degenerate, such as diabetes and neurodegenerative disease, are a huge unmet health need for which there are currently no curative treatments. Read more

What controls the speed of embryonic development?

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or UCL). Read more

Control of developmental timing in mammals

How biological timing is encoded in the genome is a fundamental question in biology. In development, the pace of developmental programs is a source of evolutionary change. Read more

Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity. Read more

Stem Cells: Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases

Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide. Read more

Defining the role of CRL Ub ligases in Plasmodium sexual differentiation and transmission

Ubiquitin and Nedd8 are involved in fundamental cellular processes and are essential to all eukaryotes. As such, enzymes mediating their dynamic attachment and removal from substrates present attractive targets for therapeutic intervention for both chronic and communicable diseases. Read more
