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[…]
