  Defining the role of NF-𝜅B during embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr D Turner, Prof A McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) are a useful system to probe early development. They can be maintained in a pluripotent state in culture, and differentiated using well-defined protocols to all tissue types of the embryo proper.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
  Tissue Engineering of Functional Cardiac Tissue using a Newly Characterised Cardiac Stem Cell Population
  Dr R Oldershaw, Dr R Barrett-Jolley, Dr A P Meeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We will develop a novel route to create and test stem cell-derived engineered cardiac tissue for use in heart infarct repair or in vitro drug screening.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  Using embryonic stem cell models to determine the importance of post transcriptional gene regulation in the early stages of embryo development
  Dr S Tew, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will close once a successful applicant has been appointed. This project will examine how regulators of gene expression at the post transcriptional level, affect the very earliest processes of embryo development.
