  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: How human genome variation affects gene expression
  Prof T Milne, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr D Waithe
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Epigenetics is often described as mechanisms that maintain gene expression profiles through multiple cell divisions long after the initiating signal has been lost.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease: Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease
  Assoc Prof J Hughes, Prof T Milne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
The Hughes group is interested in how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease. The ~22 thousand genes in the mammalian genome are present in the DNA of every cell but are used in complex patterns in different cell types and organs.
  Structure and function of enzyme complexes involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation
  Dr G S Winkler
Applications accepted all year round
Many proteins in human cells function as part of high molecular weight multi-subunit assemblies. The structure and function of such large molecular machines is often difficult to characterise due to their complexity, low abundance and structural dynamics.
  Gene Regulation: How mammalian genes are switched on and off during development and differentiation and how this goes awry in human genetic diseases
  Prof D Higgs, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Other Potential Supervisors. Mira Kassouf. Our laboratory addresses the question of how mammalian genes are switched on and off during development, lineage commitment and differentiation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Integrative statistical inference methods for eukaryotic gene regulation with applications to embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Prof M Rattray, Dr I Iqbal, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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).
  How to prevent promiscuous gene regulation
  Prof M C Gambetta
Applications accepted all year round
Regulatory elements that turn genes ON or OFF are promiscuous and can act over large genomic distances. How are genes protected from unwanted regulation?.

  FOXA1 mutations in Lobular Breast Cancer: Reprogramming Responses to Tamoxifen
  Prof D Heery, Dr S Johnston
Applications accepted all year round
Tumours of the breast are often hormone-dependent, meaning their growth is driven by steroid hormones such as estrogen. This hormone acts upon the estrogen receptor (ER), which together with other transcription factors such as FOXA1 drives tumour growth.
