PhD Studentship in Ocular Developmental Biology

Cell cycle and apoptosis regulation during lens development
Cell and Molecular Research Group, School of Optometry and Vision Sciences

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship beginning on October 01 2004. You will join our multidisciplinary team investigating lens development. It is essential that cell cycle regulation in lens cells is tightly co-ordinated during development. Furthermore, the lens represents an excellent model system for understanding the role of apoptosis in development and disease. This project will provide important insights into the molecular mechanisms and machinery of cell cycle and apoptosis gene regulation in the lens. The results will be vital in gaining insights into the regulation of the cell cycle and apoptosis during development and to disease states in which cell cycle and apoptosis regulation are disrupted.
The successful student will be supervised by Dr Mike Wride and Professor Mike Boulton. This PhD studentship is open to UK/EU candidates who have or expect to obtain at least a 2.i honours degree (or equivalent) in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, developmental biology or related subjects.

The School of Optometry and Vision Sciences at Cardiff University gained a 5* rating in the last RAE. Additional information can be found at: om
