  Modeling differentiation of human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells into endodermal derivatives
  Prof A Adamo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Stem Cells and Diseases (STEMD-Lab) is seeking a highly motivated candidate to develop a project based on the use of human embryonic stem cells (hES) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to derive glucose sensitive differentiated cell types (i.e.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
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.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Deciphering the principles underlying specification of endoderm versus mesoderm in mouse embryonic stem cells
  Dr C Hill
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Caroline Hill’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our lab focuses on the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-b) superfamily of ligands which comprises the TGF-bs, Activins, Nodal, BMPs and GDFs.
  Investigating the function of developmental regulators in early human embryogenesis and stem cells
  Dr K Niakan
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Kathy Niakan’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). This project will characterise key regulators of human embryogenesis.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
  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.
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
  How does epithelial tissue organization modulate pluripotent stem cell identity and fate?
  Dr M Shahbazi
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryogenesis pluripotent stem cells give rise to all the cell types present in the organism. How pluripotent cells decide their fate is a fundamental question in development and regeneration.
