  Molecular dissection of protein palmitoylation in neurons
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  Molecular dissection of activity-dependent neuronal signalling pathways using quantitative proteomics
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent proteomic investigations have identified several thousand proteins in biochemically purified synapses and have uncovered multiprotein complexes essential for synapse function.
  Cell plasticity in development and disease
  Dr K Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although 90% of cancer deaths are caused by metastasis, the underlying pathogenic mechanisms are poorly understood.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  Investigation of the generation of force by fibroblasts under the influence of therapeutic ultrasound
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Chronic ulcers are non-healing wounds that affect 200,000 UK patients annually and frequently result in amputation.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Elucidating the signalling pathways important for plasma cell biology and antibody secretion
  Dr A Peden, Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plasma cells are the antibody secreting cells of the immune system thus are vital for fighting infection. However, dysregulation of plasma cell function is linked to a broad range of disease from Lupus to multiple myeloma.
  Staphylococcus aureus Infection Dynamics
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

S. aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance due to the spread of antibiotic resistance. It can cause a wide range of diseases, from superficial skin infections to life threatening endocarditis and septicaemia.
