  Making Induced Neural Stem Cells from People with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
  Dr S Pluchino, Dr A Nicaise
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple sclerosis (MS), an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system, afflicts an estimated 2-3 million people worldwide, most of whom will ultimately develop a progressive form of the disease with few therapeutic options.
  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.
  Going across temporal scales: how are oscillatory dynamics of protein expression decoded in the bursty expression of downstream genes in neurogenesis?
  Prof N Papalopulu, Prof H Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of gene expression dynamics has been transformed by the application of single cell molecular and imaging technologies.
  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.
  PhD at the University of Hong Kong in protein and stem cell engineering
  Dr R Jauch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My laboratory studies how transcription factors read the genomic code to toggle the switches that turn genes on and off to give cells their identity.
  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.
  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.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the role and regulation of a tumour suppressor’s oscillatory gene expression in cancer cell plasticity
  Prof N Papalopulu, Dr R Clarke, Dr T House
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in breast cancer treatment mean that more patients survive cancer than ever before. However, in estrogen positive (ER+) breast cancer, the most common type of breast cancer, some patients either develop resistance to anti-estrogen therapies during the treatment itself or relapse after the end of treatment.
  Signalling to the Code: Understanding the biochemical regulation of DNA methylation in stem cells
  Dr M Christophorou
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do our cells, all of which have exactly the same set of genes, adopt such different fates, morphologies and functions? How do cells then respond to…
  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.
