  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  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.
  Engineering Medicine Manufacture Processes for Cell and Stem Cell Based Therapies
  Dr R Thomas
Applications accepted all year round
Cell and Stem Cell based therapies are revolutionising medical treatment. Immunotherapies such as CAR-T cells are effectively treating previously terminal diseases and are poised to reach mass markets.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  The effect of polysialyltransferase modulation on tumour cell migration
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr R Falconer
Applications accepted all year round
One of the main reasons for failure of cancer therapy today is an inability to control tumour dissemination, with secondary tumour deposits the cause of morbidity.
  Bioengineering stem cells for neuroprotection against stroke
  Dr N Vasudevan, Dr E Delivopoulos, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
"Stroke, in particular ischaemic stroke, is the third major cause of death worldwide and there is significant health impairment in survivors.
  Complex network control of stem cell derived cultures
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"In order to create a next generation of interfaces between prosthetic devices and the nervous system or to create next generation of intelligent robots – hybrids between artificial and biological systems, it is necessary to understand the principles that allow biological networks to achieve control of bodies.
  Investigating the link between autophagy and DNA damage in Alzheimer’s disease neurons
  Prof T McKay
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Many neuronopathic diseases affecting the ageing population such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS with Frontotemporal dementia and Lewy body dementia all result from the aberrant accumulation of substrate in intracellular vesicles within cortical neurons.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  Development of iPSCs from patients with Urofacial Syndrome for disease modelling
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
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.
