  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
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.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does increasing stability of Notch affect formation of the segmented body axis?
  Prof J K Dale
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.
  Using embryonic stem cell models to determine the importance of post transcriptional gene regulation in the early stages of embryo development
  Dr S Tew, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will close once a successful applicant has been appointed. This project will examine how regulators of gene expression at the post transcriptional level, affect the very earliest processes of embryo development.
  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.
  Regulation of cell cycle progression in skeletal muscle stem cells
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscles to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of adult skeletal muscle stem cells called satellite cells.
  Integrative statistical inference methods for eukaryotic gene regulation with applications to embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr I Iqbal, Prof M Rattray, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can differentiate into different cell types through intermediary cell states and deeper understanding of the regulatory control underlying these differentiation stages is a very important topic in the study of mammalian development (Yang et al., 2014 & 2019).
  Defining the role of NF-𝜅B during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr D Turner, Prof A McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are a useful system to probe early development. They can be maintained in a pluripotent state in culture, and differentiated using well-defined protocols to all tissue types of the embryo proper.
  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.

  Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs
  Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity.
  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.
  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
