Generously salaried PhD studentships to research trust and IoT with the University of Dundee and Mozilla. OpenDoTT is a joint PhD training program from the University of Dundee and Mozilla, which aims to develop future researchers and leaders capable of designing and advocating for a more trusted Internet of Things.
Understanding and controlling the balance between pluripotent self-renewal and differentiation is the major aim of the field of stem cell biology and it is the limiting factor for successful, safe, widespread use of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in a clinical setting.
This aim of this highly interdisciplinary PhD project is to combine state-of-the-art imaging, data analysis and sophisticated biophysical modelling to quantitatively analyse the cell behaviours that drive gastrulation in the chick embryo, a model system for human development.
Achieving a rapid and efficient degradation of endogenous proteins of interest (POIs) in cells is desirable as a research toolkit to understand protein function, and for therapeutic targeting of proteins.
It is clear that very weak protein–protein interactions can be extremely important in various areas of biology1. In many systems transient and reversible protein binding can be vital, these systems include such things as electron-transport, replication, transcription, cell signalling and some aspects of catalysis.
