EASTBIO: Bioactive lipid mediators in the development and function of lung mononuclear phagocytes

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs) including macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs) play critical roles in maintenance of tissue homeostasis, inflammation, and repair post injury. Read more

EASTBIO: Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Mechanisms that modulate leukocyte migration in vivo are fundamental to the function of the immune system. Leukocytes such as neutrophils and macrophages are first-line responders to many physiological and pathological changes in the tissue microenvironment, such as inflammation after injury or in cancer. Read more

EASTBIO The role of notochord progenitors in mammalian axial elongation

  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
The backbone, muscle and spinal cord are formed progressively from the neck to the tip of the tail from embryonic cells known as neuromesodermal progenitors (NMPs)1. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO: How cells build the intestine

Organs generate their own shapes during embryonic development through the production and precise placement of cells. The intestine, uniquely, takes the shape of a long tube, crucial for nutrient absorption by ensuring that a high surface area is attained before birth. Read more

EASTBIO Molecular and regulatory insights into getting out of mitosis

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
The fidelity of chromosome segregation is essential to ensure genome stability. Failure to exit mitosis and complete cell division results in tetraploidy and extra centrosomes which is a path to tumour development and drug resistance. Read more

Self-assembly and phase separation in biological systems

Are you interested in joining research on the interface of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to model self-assembly and phase separation in biological cells. Read more

Fluorescent smartprobes for direct detection of the lipid second messenger PIP3

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Activated phosphoinositide 3-kinase, short PI3K, phosphorylates the membrane lipid phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PI-4,5-P2) to generate the lipid second messenger, PI-3,4,5-P3 (PIP3). Read more

Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme in ‘One Health Models of Disease: Science, Ethics and Society’ at the University of Edinburgh

 . Edinburgh Infectious Diseases, with the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society, is delighted to open applications to the third cohort of students on this new Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme. Read more

EASTBIO: Exploring the potential to manipulate macrophage behaviour in salivary gland regeneration

Radiation injury is characterised by an influx of inflammatory cells. Macrophages have long been considered key cells in the tissue repair process, but they can have both beneficial and detrimental effects on damage resolution and tissue repair, depending on their phenotype and the niche they inhabit. Read more

EASTBIO Using chemistry to reveal nuclear architecture - Multiplexed labelling of RNA, DNA and proteins

The aim of this PhD project is to develop and use biorthogonal chemistry tools to simultaneously label DNA and RNA, and to visualise them together with proteins, namely SAF-A, using super-resolution microscopy. Read more

EASTBIO: Developing ex-vivo models to understand lung damage and repair

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. This project is driven by the need to find new treatments that can repair damaged lungs. Read more

EASTBIO Ubiquitin dynamics during host-pathogen interaction

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Protein ubiquitination is a key regulatory process that controls many aspects of eukaryotic life. Both free living and pathogenic organisms employ ubiquitination mediated protein networks to adapt to their environment. Read more
