Cambridge Stem Cell Institute Four year PhD studentships - Stem Cell Biology- Samuel Myers (360G-Wellcome-097922_B_11_E)

This proposal is to facilitate creation of a world-leading centre for fundamental and translational stem cell research. The Cambridge Stem Cell Institute (SCI) will build upon previous Wellcome Trust and Medical Research Council funding by drawing together 30 research teams into a cohesive centre. These groups will ultimately be co-located in a purpose-designed 8000m2 facility to be constructed on the Cambridge Biomedical Research Campus. Platform technologies supported by a Centre grant will en able SCI to recruit and retain the most talented investigators and empower them to make ground-breaking advances in understanding stem cells and their medical applications. Fundamental research will focus at the molecular level on mechanisms of self-renewal, commitment, differentiation and reprogramming. Functional studies will address the role of stem cells in development, repair, ageing, physiology and pathologies including cancer. Disease-specific induced pluripotent stem cells will be exploi ted to unravel mechanisms of cellular pathogenesis and define drug targets. Strategies to mobilise endogenous stem
