  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.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does CDK1 regulate NICD turnover in a cell cycle dependant manner in Drosophila Melanogaster?
  Prof J K Dale, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Understanding regulation of gene expression during development via an integrated computational analysis of ‘omics data
  Prof S Hubbard, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic development requires exquisite control of the expression of large numbers of genes, integrating components from the genome, transcriptome and proteome.
  Investigation of a completely uncharacterised, embryonically lethal gene in immune cell development
  Dr J James, Prof K Sampath
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of vertebrate animals from a single fertilised cell to the fully formed adult is an astonishingly well-choreographed sequence of events, which is made more remarkable by being so faithfully recapitulated on each attempt.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory focuses on deciphering gene regulatory networks that govern complex programmes during early vertebrate development.

  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.

  The role of Sonic hedgehog in embryonic cell proliferation
  Prof M Placzek, Dr M Towers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate how Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signalling controls embryonic cell proliferation.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  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.
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Modulating cell signalling regulates morphogenesis of the developing nervous system
  Dr M E Pownall, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors such as FGFs and Wnts are important signalling molecules that regulate development and are also known to cause disease when they go wrong.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
