About the Project
The student will be trained in techniques including cell culture, protein analysis (Western blotting), RNA/qRT-PCR analysis, immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence and mass spectrometry.
Findings from this study could provide new insights into the association of neurodegenerative diseases with dysregulated metabolism.
Applicants should have or be expecting to obtain at least an Upper Second (2i) class degree in Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Biomedical Science, Biochemistry or a related subject. Experience in laboratory work, particularly in cell culture and analysis, would be an advantage, but training can be given. The student should be enthusiastic, self-motivated, and committed to carrying out their own research.
