  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.
  Rapid blood platelet analysis: linking micro-capillary assays to novel digital microscopy and smartphone technology
  Dr CI Jones, Dr A Edwards, Prof W Harwin
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Blood clots allow us to recover from tissue injury. Platelets are small blood cells that prevent bleeding by clumping together to form clots.
  Novel regulation of platelet-endothelial crosstalk in settings of vascular disease
  Dr N Pugh, Dr H Chichger
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/biomedical-research-group.
  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.
  Investigating how platelet-derived ncRNAs are altering the genetics of breast cancer cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Boyne, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
Platelet-derived microparticles (PMPs) are capable of delivering non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) to cells that modulate gene expression.
  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.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
  The role of tumour microenvironment interactions in melanoma therapy resistance
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake, Dr M Sutherland
Applications accepted all year round
The incidence of malignant melanoma has steadily increased over the past 30 years, and it is predicted that 76,250 new cases will be diagnosed in the US and over 10,000 in the UK this year.
