  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  The effects of androgenetic alopecia development on immune function
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Androgen hormones can have significant effects on hair follicles in androgen sensitive regions of the scalp, beard, and other areas of skin.
  Implications of Long Non-Coding RNAs in Hair Growth Control
  Dr N Botchkareva, Dr Mrs Bertolini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Monasterium Laboratory (ML) is offering a fully-funded PhD studentship to work at our state-of-the-art laboratory in the beautiful city of Münster, Germany (www.monasteriumlab.com).
  Defining active immunoprotection and regulatory T cell promotion in hair follicles
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr N Botchkareva
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the non-scarring inflammatory hair loss disease Alopecia areata (AA) lymphocytes specifically target hair follicles (HFs) and disrupt hair growth.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  Hair follicle dysbiosis and immune privilege alteration as drivers of human skin dysfunction, interrogating dandruff pathogenesis as a model
  Prof R Paus, Dr J Hardman
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the psycho-social burden of dandruff and the commercial relevance of its management, the molecular and cellular pathobiology of this condition is poorly understood.
  Investigation of the role of molecular regulators during skin development and wound healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin morphogenesis occurs under stringent control of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and result in a formation of the epidermis and a number of different skin appendages (including, the hair follicle, HF).
  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.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  Developing a therapy for hearing loss using human pluripotent stem cells
  Prof M Rivolta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vast majority of cases of deafness are produced by the irreversible loss of the sensory hair cells and their associated neurons.
