  (MRC DTP) Modelling inherited developmental ocular disorders using in vitro organoids to understand retinal stem cell fate decisions
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. During early eye development stem cells must balance fate decisions between proliferation and differentiation at the same time as undergoing cell migration and morphogenesis to prevent such disorders.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
  ORBITAL (MSCA-European Training Network) 4 Early Stage Researcher PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

4 Early Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD studentships still available on the Marie Skłodowska-Curie action (MSCA) European/Innovative Training Network, ORBITAL (Ocular Research By Integrated Training And Learning) within the Horizon 2020 programme.
  Department of Health Technology and Informatics

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Health Technology and Informatics welcomes applications from high potential candidates with academic excellence, research ability and potential, and good communication, interpersonal and leadership abilities for full-time PhD study in Hong Kong through the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) 2020/21.
  Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration
  Prof R Lucas, Dr Nina Milosavljevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.
  Aldehyde dehydrogenase expression and function in cancer stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr A Mardaryev, Prof A Locke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDHs) catalyse the oxidation and detoxification of reactive endogenous and exogenous aldehydes into carboxylic acids via NAD+ coupled reduction.
