Two fully-funded PhD positions in Wnt trafficking at the LSI in Exeter

Posted by on October 9th, 2017

The process of subdividing a tissue into functional units represents a classic problem in pattern formation. Signalling proteins – so-called morphogens – orchestrate this process. The traditional view is that morphogens are released from local source and slowly diffuse through a neighbouring tissue to build up a gradient. As Wnt signals act as a key[…]

EMBO practical course “Imaging of Neural Development in Zebrafish”

Posted by on June 3rd, 2013

8-15 September 2013, Karlsruhe, Germany We would like to welcome applications to the EMBO zebrafish workshop that will take place at KIT, Karlsruhe (Germany) in the fall of 2013. The objective of this EMBO Workshop is to provide theoretical and practical background on the zebrafish model system for direct assessment of open questions using modern[…]

PhD-student Position in Thalamus Development / Tissue Engineering in Zebrafish

Posted by on September 21st, 2011

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to study development and regeneration of the thalamus in zebrafish. Stroke is a prevalent and devastating disorder, and no treatment is currently available to restore lost neuronal function after stroke. In 10% of all stroke patients, a remote damage of the thalamus has been documented. We[…]
