  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: The underlying mechanism by which hypoxia regulates platelet hyperactivity
  Dr I Hers
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Can we improve patient outcomes by providing a more personalized approach to antiplatelet therapies?
  Dr S Mundell
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  How does the vascular matrix environment influence platelet activation?
  Dr S Calaminus
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020
The platelet is a blood cell that plays a key role in the prevention of bleeding. For platelets to form a clot or thrombus effectively, they must rearrange their actin cytoskeleton to withstand high shear stress from blood flow in the arteries.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020
Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT Bioengineering platelets for Blood Transfusions
  Prof A Poole, Dr I Hers
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Identification of novel glucose-dependent alterations responsible for platelet dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr F Rivero
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a growing global healthcare problem. Clinical findings suggest that more than 70% of patients with T2DM will die of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) including heart attack and stroke.
  Systems level analysis of platelet signalling
  Dr M J Fry, Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation.
  The regulation of platelet function - towards new strategies to prevent thrombosis
  Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets perform a pivotal role in the regulation of haemostasis, a physiological response to injury that prevents excessive bleeding.
