We are seeking a talented and motivated PhD candidate to work on our fully funded project focused on recreating brain tumours using human mini-brains, starting on the 1st of October 2023. As part of our team, you'll generate and characterize cerebral organoids, and use them as a platform to induce brain tumours. This innovative system will enable us to study the mechanisms of tumour formation and therapeutic resistance, and pave the way for new breakthroughs in cancer research.
Located in the vibrant coastal city of Plymouth, our university offers a unique experience for PhD candidates. Not only will you have access to cutting-edge research facilities and a dynamic community of researchers, but you'll also be surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the UK.
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you require further details or would like to have an informal conversation about the project:
