About the Project
One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell. At a population level, this decision-making process must exist in a tightly regulated balance in order to avoid tissue degeneration (too few stem cells) or progression to cancer (too many stem cells). Our lab explores the biology of adult blood stem cells and the process by which single blood stem cells are subverted to drive blood cancers such as leukaemia.
Our research is highly inter-disciplinary with three major themes:
1) Understanding the molecular regulators of normal blood stem cells
2) Clonal evolution of cancers from single cells
3) Physical and Mechanical Biology
The Department of Biology at the University of York is committed to recruiting extraordinary future scientists regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation or career pathway to date. We understand that commitment and excellence can be shown in many ways and have built our recruitment process to reflect this. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, particularly those underrepresented in science, who have curiosity, creativity and a drive to learn new skills.
