  Investigating the role of lysine methylation in the DNA damage response.
  Dr M Higgs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genomic DNA is under constant attack from DNA damaging agents, which are a continuing threat to genomic integrity. Defective resolution of DNA damage underlies several human diseases, including haematopoietic abnormalities and developmental disorders as well as cancer.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  The importance of the DNA damage response in neurodegeneration
  Dr R Tuxworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage occurs in early-stage neurodegenerative diseases. The response of neurons to the damage may contribute to disease progression by inducing senescence, cell-cycle and apoptosis.
  The impact of genomics education on professional practice
  Dr S Buckley, Prof J Parry, Dr H Brown
Application Deadline: 29 September 2019
