Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine


About This PhD Project

Project Description

Applications are now open for a PhD studentship entitled ‘Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine’ via the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.



Leucocyte trafficking can be modulated for therapeutic benefit in immune-mediated, inflammatory diseases including multiple sclerosis (MS) but individual patient responses are sub-optimal and variable. We will use biomimetic models and microfluidics to develop a personalised approach to drug selection in MS and identify novel therapeutic targets.



Additional information about the project and how to apply are available online: https://www.gw4biomed.ac.uk/doctoral-students/ or by contacting the supervisors directly.
