Exosome Characterization in Immunity and Development - Biosciences, PhD (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,553 p.a. for 2017/18, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees Fri 24th Nov 17 This PhD will characterise exosomes in immune and developmental epigenetic signalling and their effect on cellular function in healthy and pathological conditions.
Extracellular Trafficking of Wnt Signal in Gastric Cancer - Biosciences, PhD (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,553 p.a. for 2017/18, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees Fri 24th Nov 17 This PhD project will develop new understanding of Wnt signal transport in gastric cancer. By combining the elegant tumour organoid culture system and zebrafish models, you will investigate the mechanisms of this signal in healthy and diseased tissue.
Identification of Therapeutic Drugs for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Using a Cross-Species Screening Approach - Biomedicine, PhD (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,553 p.a. for 2017/18, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees Fri 24th Nov 17 This project will use a variety of cutting-edge methods including high-throughput screening, disease modelling using iPSCs, high-content imaging and in vivo analysis to identify and characterise candidate drug targets for the treatment of ALS.
When Red Blood Cell Clearance Goes Wrong: the Role of Phagocytosis - Biosciences, PhD (GW4 BioMed MRC DTP)Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,553 p.a. for 2017/18, updated each year) plus UK/EU tuition fees Fri 24th Nov 17 This project will investigate red blood cell clearance by the immune system. You will use a combination of mathematical modelling and lab work to dissect how membrane stiffness and "age-signalling" proteins affect red blood cell phagocytosis.
