  Influence of underlying matrix on induced pluripotent stem cell differentiation and integration of trabecular meshwork cells
  Dr CM Sheridan, Dr R Oldershaw
Applications accepted all year round
There is an urgent need for further treatment options for the blinding condition of Glaucoma Unfortunately with age there is a progressive loss of cells (Trabecular meshwork) from the eye’s outflow pathway which is even more severe with patients with glaucoma.
  Modelling brain development using human induced pluripotent stem cells
  Dr E Becker
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The human brain is arguably the most complex structure among living organisms. Its development from single cells into a highly elaborate and unique organ has intrigued scientists for generations, yet remains incompletely understood.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round
Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Understanding Neuroinflammation through advanced in vitro 3D modelling using human Pluripotent Stem Cells
  Dr S Cowley, Prof W S James
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Microglia - brain-resident macrophages - carry out homeostatic surveillance functions in the brain, clearing dying cells, extracellular debris, and pruning synapses during development.
  Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes as a model to understand the cellular basis of heart failure in sepsis
  Dr D Greensmith
Applications accepted all year round
Severe sepsis is the overwhelming immune response to systemic infection and results in approximately 6 million global deaths each year.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying replicative stress and genome damage in pluripotent stem cells
  Dr I Barbaric, Prof S El-Khamisy
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) in the early embryo give rise to all of the somatic cells in the body. Maintenance of the genetic integrity of PSCs is essential for preventing genetic defects to be passed onto multiple progeny cells, which would be detrimental for a developing embryo.
  From Hematopoietic development towards generation of Hematopoietic stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
  Prof A Medvinsky, Dr V Wilson
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) give rise to the majority of cells in the adult haematopoietic system, however, their embryonic development is poorly understood.
  Pluripotent cell-derived mesenchymal stem cells: biology and therapy
  Prof R Xu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD studentship in Biomedical Sciences (to be admitted in mid-August 2019). University of Macau is the flagship public university in Macau, rapidly developing for high-quality education and groundbreaking research with English as its working language.
  Early lineage specification in mammalian embryos
  Dr B Plusa
Applications accepted all year round
Growing understanding of the pre-implantation mammalian development resulted in significant advances in assisted reproduction techniques and in regenerative medicine field.
