Genetic Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 54 Genetic Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Implementing state-of-the-art models to understand how blood cancer clones out-compete healthy stem cells and discovery targetable disease mechanisms

My lab focuses on myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) – chronic blood cancers in which cancer-induced remodelling of the tumour microenvironment plays a major role in fuelling malignant progression and poor outcomes for patients. Read more

Investigating lysosomal (dys)function in ageing and neurodegeneration

Project Overview. Ageing is associated with a decline in the functions of an organism (López-Otín, C. et al. Cell, 2023) and correlates with an increased risk of developing diseases in the later life (Niccoli, T. Read more

How sex chromosomes regulate mammalian development

In the Turner lab, we investigate how the sex chromosomes control mammalian development, from the early embryo to adult cell types, including germ cells. Read more

Investigating how mitochondrial dynamics control mtDNA homeostasis and engineering tools to visualise mtDNA molecules

Mitochondria are dynamic organelles forming a specific network by membrane remodeling events according to cellular needs1. Mitochondria contain multiple copies of their own genome, mtDNA, a circular molecule that encodes 13 essential proteins involved in energy production through oxidative phosphorylation. Read more

FULLY FUNDED PROJECT - De novo emergence and evolution of novel gene regulatory interactions in bacteria

'TO APPLY, PLEASE CLICK INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. The need to understand how bacterial gene regulatory mechanisms emerge and evolve to help bacteria quickly adapt to environmental changes has never been more crucial. Read more

PhD Studentship in Statistical Physics of Molecular Evolution (3.5 years)

A 3.5 year PhD position is available from October 2024 to work under the supervision of Kabir Husain. This is an exciting opportunity to join an interdisciplinary research group that uses tools from theoretical physics to analyse, predict, and design evolutionary fates in biology. Read more

Reconstruction of the sensory pathway via gene manipulation

Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes impairment of the sensory, motor and autonomic functions. Pilot experiments have demonstrated the possibility of regenerating sensory function after spinal cord injury by expressing alpha9 integrin and kindlin-1 in DRGs. Read more
