  Understanding how multicellular bacteria divide (SCHLIMPERTJ20DTP)
  Dr S Schlimpert
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every cell must divide to grow and to propagate. While most bacteria simply split in half, the decision when and where to divide is more complex in multicellular bacteria like the antibiotic producing bacteria Streptomyces.

  Comparative genomic analysis of variant features within the Neisseria spp.
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of rapid genome sequencing had generated an explosion of bacterial genome sequence data, much of which has not been fully explored and investigated.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
