  Quantitative biology of cell fate and tissue dynamics: Modelling stem cell fate and alterations due to mutations
  Dr E Morrissey
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group uses a combination of deep learning, stochastic models and Bayesian modelling to study questions relating to stem cell fate dynamics and how mutations in stem cells alter their normal behaviour, become fixed and accumulate in the tissue eventually leading to cancer.
  A multi-tissue in vitro model of osteoarthritis
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr D Player
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disorder which is predominantly found in elderly individuals (Lee et al., 2013), but has recently been linked to sports participation at high levels (Vannini et al., 2016).
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  Signalling pathways maintaining human embryonic stem cells
  Prof S J Kimber, Prof D Brison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to determine the function of novel genes predicted to have critical roles in preimplantation human development and in disease in later life.
  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
  PhD Studentship: How does excessive type I interferon activity damage the brain?
  Dr C Duncan
Application Deadline: 17 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 31 October 2019 for 3 years. Overview. Type I interferons (IFNα/β) are potent antiviral cytokines with pleotropic functions, including the regulation of cellular activation, proliferation and cell death.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Functional interactions between GPCRs in the renal microvasculature
  Dr S V Smirnov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertension and diabetes resulting in diabetic nephropathy (DN) are amongst the leading causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
