  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round
Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  What keeps the gut stem cell niche healthy? (SOBOLEWSKIAU19SF)
  Dr A Sobolewski
Applications accepted all year round
A normal functioning epithelium is vital for a healthy gut. The epithelium forms a protective barrier between the bacteria and food contents in the intestine and the underlying immune system, so preventing an immune response.
  Parallels between wound healing and cancer – role of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Prof A M Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Wound healing and cancer metastasis share common early signalling pathways that have led to the hypothesis that tumours are “wounds that do not heal”, a phrase first coined by Virchow in the 19th century.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Drivers of epithelial growth and repair in tissue-specific differentiation programmes
  Prof J Southgate, Dr G Evans
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Epithelial tissues are found at interfaces between the body and external environment and show site-specific functions, such as nutrient absorption by the gut and urinary barrier defence by the bladder.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
  An in vivo genetic screen of lung function candidate genes using tissue specific RNAi in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr M Georgiou, Dr I Sayers
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of worldwide mortality and morbidity. Current strategies in management depend on accurate diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment.
  A potential role for Epithelial Mesenchymal Trans differentiation (EMT) in the Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Periodontitis is a ubiquitous chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the supporting structures of teeth; the most common form is chronic periodontitis which if untreated results in the breakdown of soft tissues and bone, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
  The interplay between antigen presenting and epithelial cells in allergic sensitisation
  Dr A Ghaemmaghami
Applications accepted all year round
Allergic diseases and asthma have remained global health issues with substantial morbidity and mortality.
