  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

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.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Dr H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Exploiting the true joint progenitor cell for articular cartilage repair
  Prof D Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Articular cartilage facilitates the frictionless motion of synovial joints. However, once damaged from trauma or excessive loading in daily use, repair is very poor leading to osteoarthritis (OA), a huge medical and social burden.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Analysing the skin response to various pollutants, with a focus on immune response by using 3D organotypic cultures generated with human cells
  Dr S Dubrac
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD position builds upon previous work, published by the host Laboratory at the Medical University of Innsbruck (Austria), suggesting a link between pollution and atopic dermatitis (eczema).
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Melanocyte proliferation and apoptosis in human skin: lessons from chronic plaque psoriasis
  Prof DJ Tobin
Application Deadline: 16 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is now available in the Charles Institute of Dermatology to investigate how epidermis remodeling in the common skin disorder Psoriasis may regulate melanocyte number.
  Sensing for human in vivo pharmacology
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr KD Dhaliwal, Dr A Akram
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As part of a recently awarded EPSRC grant, in partnership with GSK, we are seeking a biology student with excellent practical laboratory skills to evaluate new models with GSK and other imaging and sensing techniques on a series of escalating biological models.
