  Characterisation of a pre-osteoblast subset of human mesenchymal stem cells: implications for novel osteoarthritis and osteoporosis treatment development
  Dr E Jones, Prof D McGonagle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP) are the most common age-related skeletal diseases. They seriously affect patient’s quality of life and represent a significant healthcare burden to the UK society.
  Genome and transcriptome sequencing and functional analysis to find new mutation types in patients with inherited blindness
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) result from mutations in over 200 different genes, many of them first implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou E et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag M et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  Identification and functional characterisation of BRIT1/MCPH1 synthetic lethal genes to treat breast and ovarian cancer
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Women who have undergone surgery for breast and ovarian cancer often have additional chemotherapy to kill residual cancer cells and prevent recurrence.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
