About the Project
This project is a collaboration between researchers based at the University of Sydney (USYD) and the University of Newcastle (UoN). The PhD candidate will be primarily based at the Faculty of Medicine & Health, University of Sydney, with some visits to UoN. They will use state of the art models of the BBB, and gain experience in a variety of cellular and molecular assays, and advanced microscopy skills. In addition, if desired, the student will have the opportunity to gain experience in some in vivo models. They will join a team undertaking an array of preclinical and clinical research in this field, and will have access to cutting-edge laboratory equipment, exceptional mentoring opportunities, and collaborative work with overseas biotech companies. Applicants should have strong work ethics, and communication and teamwork skills. Out of hours and weekend work maybe required due to the nature of the project.
