  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
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.
  Self-assembling nanoclay gels for stem cell driven bone regeneration
  Dr J Dawson
Application Deadline: 19 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Institute / Faculty. Medicine. Main Supervisor. Jonathan Dawson. Other members of the supervisory team. Roxanna Ramnarine Sanchez, Nick Evans, Richard Oreffo.
  Single Cell Genomics
  Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology (HSCB) Laboratory is focused on understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.

  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.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  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.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Bioengineering of patient-derived explants (PDEs) and 3D organoid culture systems for tissue regeneration, cancer and drug discovery
  Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The intestine provides an attractive route to model biologically important intestinal processes and a unique opportunity for the direct identification and analysis of factors that contribute to development and maintenance of both normal as well as the development of neoplasia.
  Modelling stem cell fate and alterations due to mutations
  Dr E Morrissey
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group uses a combination of deep learning, stochastic models and Bayesian modelling to study questions relating to stem cell fate dynamics and how mutations in stem cells alter their normal behaviour, become fixed and accumulate in the tissue eventually leading to cancer.

  MSc by Research Programme: Functions & Applications of a Novel Embryonic Stem Cell Signalling Pathway
  Dr GM Findlay
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  The generation of RBCs in vitro from stem cell sources and the molecular regulation of erythropoiesis in health and disease
  Dr J Frayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Development of systems for the generation of red blood cells (RBCs) from stem cell sources (adult peripheral blood, cord blood and pluripotent stem cells)…
  Defining the role of NF-𝜅B during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr D Turner, Prof A McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are a useful system to probe early development. They can be maintained in a pluripotent state in culture, and differentiated using well-defined protocols to all tissue types of the embryo proper.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
