  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Plant Stem Cell formation
  Prof T Laux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a newly funded PhD position in plant embryo development. The goal is to investigate how the stem cells of the shoot meristem are formed during embryo development.
  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.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  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.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells #NDORMS-2020/6
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  Analysis of tissue remodelling and lipid metabolism in glioblastoma cancer stem cells using advanced chemically- and mechanically-sensitive optical microscopy
  Dr F Siebzehnrubl, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal adult brain cancer. High patient mortality is partly attributed to glioblastoma cancer stem cells causing recurrence of therapy-resistant tumours.
  How does epithelial tissue organization modulate pluripotent stem cell identity and fate?
  Dr M Shahbazi
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryogenesis pluripotent stem cells give rise to all the cell types present in the organism. How pluripotent cells decide their fate is a fundamental question in development and regeneration.
  Characterizing the heterogeneity of stem cells in the normal breast and breast tumours
  Dr A Ucar, Prof K R Brennan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue-restricted stem cells are crucial in supporting the development and maintenance of normal tissues. This is also true for tumours, as only a small population of tumour cells, which are known as cancer stem cells, have the unique stemness features and tumour-initiating capacity.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
