Charity funded project: Tracking the clonal evolution of human haematopoietic stem cells in myeloid malignancies


Department of Biology

York United Kingdom Cancer Biology Cell Biology

About the Project

Haematopoiesis is a complex, finely-tuned process that produces trillions of new blood cells daily. Adult haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are responsible for the lifelong maintenance of this system, making it essential to understand their biology. The balance between mature cell production and HSC maintenance is essential for homeostasis and gets disrupted in ageing (too few stem cells) and cancer (too many immature cells). This project focuses on trying to track blood stem cells as they drive cancers using mouse models, human patient samples and cutting edge single cell technologies.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Students with, or expecting to gain, at least an upper second class honours degree, or equivalent, are invited to apply. If English isn't your first language you may need to provide evidence of your English language ability. For more information see our Postgraduate English language requirements.

START DATE: 1st May 2021


Funding Notes

This project will be fully-funded by a UK charity for three years. The funding includes:
Tax-free annual stipend (£19,000 for 2020/21)
UK tuition fees (£4,407 for 2020/21)
Research support and training charges (RSTC)
We aim to support the most outstanding applicants from outside the UK and are able to offer a bursary that will enable the full studentship to be awarded to an international (EU and non-EU) student of exceptional quality.
