  Generation of universal donor transplant tissue by genomic engineering of induced pluripotent stem cells
  Dr F Manson, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Blindness can be caused by mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), the tissue adjacent to the rod and cone photoreceptor cells that is essential for their normal function.
  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.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Precision Medicine DTP: Time-resolved single-cell analysis of neural cell differentiation in motor neuron disease (MND)
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr C Sibley, Dr R Grima
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Industrial Partner. Dolomite Bio. Background. Motor neuron disease (MND) is a relentlessly progressing and devastating condition caused by the selective degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons essential for all movement.
  Induced pluripotent stem-cell (iPSC) reprogramming in bone and blood cancers (Ref:SF20/APP/PAL)
  Dr D Pal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

iPSC (somatic cells reprogrammed to an embryonic-stem-cell-like state) are not only a means of patient relevant disease modelling, but de-differentiation of terminal cells to their primitive precursors often reveal aberrations in tissue development.
  Characterisation of the neuronal receptor for soluble amyloid precursor protein: a route to new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof N Hooper, Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the commonest form of dementia for which currently there is no means of stopping or even slowing the disease.
  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.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral neuropathies (PNs) affect 2% of the general population. Somatic PNs cause locomotor and sensory deficits, while autonomic PNs cause cardiac dysrhythmias and gastrointestinal and urinary bladder dysfunction.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Mechanisms underlying the effects of rare non-coding genetic variants on vascular endothelium functions - PhD in Medical Studies (Research England DTP)
  Prof M Frontini, Prof A Shore, Dr J Whatmore
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Due to a major recent award, applications are invited from students wishing to further their scientific careers by undertaking a PhD in a diabetes related area of research.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
