  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.
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  Using a novel 3D co-culture model to define metabolic flux maps of different cancer cell types in response to physical activity
  Dr M Morris, Dr A Islam, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During exercise, and in the presence of sufficient oxygen, glucose is metabolised by muscle cells to produce pyruvate, a metabolic intermediate which is fed into the Kreb’s cycle in the mitochondria to produce large amounts of energy.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
  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 metabolic fate of omega -3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFA) in humans
  Dr S Galloway, Dr N Rodriguez-Sanchez, Dr O Witard, Dr M Furber
Application Deadline: 28 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Stirling, in partnership with Nutricia Research, is inviting applications for a 3 year full-time funded PhD studentship to commence in November/December 2019.
  Chemical Biology of the Genome and the Epigenome
  Prof S Balasubramanian
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD studentship in the group led by Professor Sir Shankar Balasubramanian, on a multidisciplinary project exploiting both chemistry and biology to explore fundamental mechanisms of genome function (http://www.balasubramanian.co.uk).
