  Molecular mechanisms underpinning EML4 driven microtubule stabilization and cell migration
  Dr A M Fry, Prof K Brown
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
EML4 is a poorly characterised microtubule-associated protein [1]. The purpose of this cell biology-focused PhD project is to explore the molecular mechanisms through which EML4 regulates microtubule dynamics and cell migration.
  Molecular mechanism involved in building neuronal microtubule cytoskeleton
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr D Cheerambathur
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Neurons are highly polarized cells with two structurally and functionally distinct projections emanating from their cell bodies— the axon and the dendrites.
  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.
  Defining how cancer cells acquire resistance to microtubule-based drugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr J Welburn, Dr N Carragher
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Taxol (paclitaxel) is a major drug used in the treatment of solid cancers (breast, lung, ovarian, bladder). However, resistance to taxol arises regularly and thus it is critical to find ways to circumvent this resistance.
  Mechanisms regulating cell shape and architecture in health and disease.
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr J Welburn, Dr T Ly
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Much research on cell organization has been using tissue culture epithelial or fibroblast cells. However, many other types of cells have a unique cellular organization tailored to their function.
  How to build chromosome segregation machinery in meiosis and mitosis
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof H Ohkura
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Genes must be passed on accurately from cell to cell and from parents to children. Failure to do so can be a cause or contributing factor in human illnesses, such as cancer or reproductive/birth defects.

  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
