  Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation
  Dr J Bond, Dr E E Morrison, Prof M Peckham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  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).
  Novel regulators of +TIP localisation and function
  Dr E E Morrison, Dr S Bell, Dr J Bond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microtubules (MTs) are a key cytoskeletal network in all eukaryotic cells. MTs grow and shrink primarily through the addition or loss of tubulin heterodimers from their plus end.
  Using massively-paralleled sequencing to find the cause of inherited conditions that affect the front of the eye
  Dr M Ali, Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eye diseases are a common cause of human disability and many of them are inherited. These include congenital as well as adult-onset conditions and diseases of ageing, and may involve abnormalities at the back of the eye or the anterior eye structures.
