Showing 1 to 10 of 41
  Extracellular Vesicles: small packages with a big role in bowel cancer metastasis
  Dr N J Peake, Dr L Cole, Prof C Le Maitre
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Project details. Background. Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) have poor survival rates, reflecting the difficulty in treating advanced disease.
  Uncovering novel roles of ciliogenesis genes
  Prof C Bingle
Application Deadline: 15 May 2019
We are looking to recruit a student for a 4 year funded A*STAR PhD studentship in the area of multiciliogenesis. Defects in ciliogenesis and cilia function underpin many human diseases and the process of ciliogenesis is incompletely understood.
  Role of Leptin in intervertebral disc degeneration
  Prof C Le Maitre, Dr N Aberdein
Applications accepted all year round
Back pain is a major cause of morbidity worldwide and the incidence and severity of back pain increases with age. Approximately 40% of all back pain cases are caused by disease in the joints in the spine, known as the intervertebral discs.
  Efficacy testing of biomaterial delivered iPS cells in in vitro cultures systems to mimic the degenerate niche
  Prof C Le Maitre, Prof C Sammon
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Low back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability and morbidity worldwide. It is widely accepted that a major contributor to LBP is intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD).
  Can the nose taste? Characterisation of a new cell type in the vertebrate olfactory system
  Prof T T Whitfield, Assoc Prof S Jesuthasan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Animals can sense diverse sensory stimuli, such as sound, light and smell. This is usually mediated by distinct sense organs, such as the ears, eyes and nose.
  Microfabrication approaches to understanding fibroblast roles in tissue regeneration
  Dr I Ortega, Dr D Lambert
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Introducing complexity within in vitro models via the creation of restrictive and confined 3D microenvironments is an emerging approach that has recently generated key data regarding intricate aspects of cell behaviour [1, 2].
  Investigation of the relationship between LRRK2 and α-synuclein in Parkinson’s disease.
  Dr K de Vos, Dr H Mortiboys
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Supervisor(s). Kurt De Vos (SITraN, Sheffield), Heather Mortiboys (SITraN, Sheffield), Laura Volpicelli- Daly (UAB, Alabama). Project details.
  Identification of the molecular pathways that guide zebrafish regeneration.
  Dr H Roehl
Applications accepted all year round
The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to replace tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Role of Hedgehog signalling in skeletal muscle regeneration
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round
The ability of skeletal muscle to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of stem cells called satellite cells.
