QUADRAT DTP: Ecological drivers and conservation implications of parental care diversity in vertebrates

There are astonishing differences in whether, how, and how long for, animals care for their offspring. In most species, such as many marine fishes, parents abandon their fertilized eggs to their own destiny, which is mostly being eaten by predators. Read more

A cellular understanding and mathematical modelling of forebrain evolution

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (King’s College London). Read more

Sex and sperm wars: the behavioural component of infertility

  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
Why is infertility so common? From both evolutionary and mechanistic perspectives, infertility remains a puzzle. Read more

ParaHox homeobox genes in chordate evo-devo.

  Research Group: Scottish Oceans Institute
This project will use a comparative approach to dissect regulatory mechanisms and functions of the chordate ParaHox genes (Gsx, Xlox/Pdx1 and Cdx), analysing regulation of these genes in the invertebrate chordates, amphioxus (Branchiostoma) and the sea squirt (Ciona intestinalis), and a vertebrate (the chicken Gallus gallus).

Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks. Read more

EASTBIO Prenatal influences on brain health and function

The prenatal environment has a profound effect on the development of the brain. Maternal stress levels, nutrition, and inflammation all can cause changes in the foetal brain, affecting the proliferation, migration, and wiring of neurons. Read more

EASTBIO Seeing double: how do dsRNA binding pseudoenzymes regulate vertebrate mRNAs?

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Pre-mRNAs and mRNAs are regulated post-transcriptionally by a variety of different mechanisms that include splicing and editing, which alter the information content of the RNAs. Read more
