  Small molecule probes to study human enzymes involved in muscular dystrophy
  Dr L Willems, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proteins on the surface of cells are often modified with diverse, complex carbohydrate structures. These carbohydrates, named glycans, play central roles in biology by regulating, for instance, cell recognition and signalling events.
  Novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
  Prof S Winder
Applications accepted all year round

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by mutations in the DMD gene leading to loss of the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  Structure and activity of carbohydrate-active enzymes associated with human disease
