    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

Chronic pain (CP) is a major cause of long term disability. Through a previous RNA seq analysis of human pain patients and animal models of neuropathic pain, we have identified several key pathways and molecules that could be important in disease process. The project will look to explore the role of these pathways in in vitro (cellular), in vivo (animal) and ex vivo (human) tissues/model systems with the ambition of elucidating the underpinning aetiology or disease process. This will also allow us to identify potential disease biomarkers and/or drug targets that could help in clinical aspects of chronic pain and diseases where the breakdown of neurons the is apparent (Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease etc.).

The successful applicant will be aware of the expectations required to be a career scientist including a strong work ethic, highly ambitious, excellent communication skills and a commitment to the research project.
