Using iPSC-derived neurons and CRISPR-Cas9 to model rare human neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric diseases

Research interests/description of main research theme. Applications are invited for a 3-year fully-funded PhD Studentship starting in October 2023 in the laboratory of Dr Martin Higgs at the University of Birmingham. Read more

Investigating the role of endothelial cells in myelin damage in Alzheimer's diseases using iPSC-derived model

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) affects around 50 million people globally with no cure. Apart from well-known neuronal loss, myelin abnormalities in brain have been recently detected from early stage of AD. Read more

Generating a disease model for Alzheimer's Disease in non-human primates

Our lab is interested in understanding and treating a devastating neurodegenerative disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), in particular aspects relating to develop appropriate disease models for AD. Read more

Assessing the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell models

Background / Overview. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a complex, age-related lung disease that primarily affects people in their 60s and despite advances in research, survival rates remain low. Read more

Investigating the oligogenic model of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; motor neuron disease, MND)

  Research Group: Neuroscience
Applications are invited for a multidisciplinary PhD studentship funded by the Motor Neurone Disease Association to study the cumulative contribution of coinherited subthreshold amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) risk gene variants in the development of cellular hallmarks of ALS pathology.
