  Developing next generation bioimaging/biophotonics tools to dissect the immunological synapse in single cells, one molecule at a time
  Prof M Leake, Dr N Signoret
Application Deadline: 29 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek an ambitious PhD student to develop/apply new bioimaging/biophotonics tools to gain insight into complex biological processes across multiple length/timescales, from single molecules through to subcellular structures, cells and cellular populations.
  Investigating the impact of chronic parasite infection on immune cell development
  Dr J Hewitson, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than a quarter of the global population is infected with a parasitic worm, resulting in a range of diseases and pathologies.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  Proteolytic network regulating the human innate immune response
  Dr D Boucher, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune system is our first line of defence against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Upon infection, immune cells, such as macrophages and neutrophils, will assemble signalling platforms termed inflammasome, to restrict and clear the insult.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
  Unravelling Stem Cell Heterogeneity
  Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) are found in adult tissues such as bone marrow and are able to differentiate into bone, cartilage and fat tissues.
