  Regulation of adult brain stem cells by Sonic Hedgehog
  Dr F Guillemot
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Francois Guillemot’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The brain is a highly plastic organ that uses a variety of mechanisms to adapt its activity to the environment and allow the organism to navigate a changing world.
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Engineering Medicine Manufacture Processes for Cell and Stem Cell Based Therapies
  Dr R Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Developing bioelectronic implants through fusion of stem cells and electroactive scaffolds
  Dr C Adams
Application Deadline: 28 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a cross institution (Keele University and Lancaster University) and multidisciplinary PhD program with the primary goal to develop and test new materials for repairing spinal cord injury.
  Resolving heterogeneity in a stem cell population
  Dr R Lovell-Badge
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Robin Lovell-Badge’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Adult Stem Cells (SCs) are tissue specific undifferentiated cells characterised by their self-renewal and differentiation properties.
  Interdisciplinary dissection of rules for gene regulation during neural development
  Dr N Luscombe, Dr J Briscoe
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year joint Crick PhD studentship is offered in the labs of Dr Nicholas Luscombe & and Dr James Briscoe’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  Micro RNA regulation of neural crest development (WHEELERGU19MCETN2)
  Dr G N Wheeler
Application Deadline: 18 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

NEUcrest is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme.
  Exploring the chromatin landscape in early development (WHEELERU20DTP)
  Dr G N Wheeler, Prof A E Munsterberg
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Neural Crest and Placodes are groups of cells found only in vertebrates, specifically in the embryo. They originate at the neural border between the ectoderm and neuroectoderm.
