Applications accepted between: 
16 Oct 2014 - 12 Nov 2014
Organization: 
University College London, Department of Cell and Developmental Biology
Ubicación:

Applications are invited for a four-year PhD studentship at University College London (UCL, London, United Kingdom) to work on an exciting translational research project aimed at developing a new strategy for ex vivo gene therapy of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) [1] based upon the combination of Human Artificial Chromosomes [2] and induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cells [3]. This post will be based in the laboratory of Dr Francesco Saverio Tedesco [4], UCL Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Division of Biosciences.

PhD scholarship in transcriptional regulation of intestinal cells at the Danish Stem Cell Center

Applications accepted between: 
16 Abr 2014 - 1 Jun 2014
Organization: 
The Danish Stem Cell Center (DanStem) Copenhagen University
Ubicación: 
Copenhagen

The transcriptional networks that govern organogenesis and morphogenesis are poorly understood. Elucidation of these pathways remains one of the most fascinating questions of biology, since developmental programs that control organ morphogenesis are perturbed in congenital diseases and become activated during the initiation and progression of different cancers.

Stem Cell Biology

Stem cells are defined by the dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate. These properties sustain homeostatic cell turnover in adult tissues and enable repair and regeneration throughout the lifetime of the organism. In contrast, pluripotent stem cells are generated in the laboratory from early embryos or by molecular reprogramming. They have the capacity to make any somatic cell type, including tissue stem cells.
