Our Dynamic Molecular Cell Biology 4-Year PhD Programme trains students to investigate dynamic mechanisms from molecular through to organismal level using cutting edge imaging technologies combined with biochemical and biophysical interrogation.
  Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants
  Dr I Sparkes, Prof D J Stephens
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol.
  Intercepting CLAVATA receptor-like kinase function to engineer ear size in wheat
  Dr J Harrison, Prof K J Edwards
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type
