  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.

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Kidneys in a dish: epithelial polarity and tube formation in human renal organoids
  Dr K Roeper
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelia constitute one of the major tissue types in all animals and form the basic building blocks of tubular organs in both vertebrates and invertebrates.

Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

T cells are vital regulators and effectors of the adaptive immune system.
  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  Application of machine learning to establish epigenetic regulators in breast and bladder epithelial tissue
  Dr AN Holding, Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetics. modifications to DNA and histones that change the expression. of genes but do not alter the code of the genes, are critical to the.
  A potential role for Epithelial Mesenchymal Trans differentiation (EMT) in the Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Periodontitis is a ubiquitous chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the supporting structures of teeth; the most common form is chronic periodontitis which if untreated results in the breakdown of soft tissues and bone, ultimately leading to tooth loss.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelial tubes are the conduit through which life-sustaining gases, nutrients and fluids are transported. But they do more than simply convey material to and fro – they carry out vital roles in modifying the material passing through.
