Call for PhD and Postdoc. HFSP Positions – Coupling of cell polarization and differentiation in organoids

Posted by on May 8th, 2018

HFSP_Call for PhD and Postdoc_May_2018   Understanding how out of single cells functional tissues and organs develop is a major challenge of biology. Recent progress allows us to grow organ-like cell assemblies (organoids) from stem cells in vitro. Organoids offer great potential for studying diseases and development. However, in many cases we do not yet[…]

The Ghavi-Helm lab for Developmental (Epi)Genomics at the Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL) in France focuses on the 3D regulatory genomics of early Drosophila embryogenesis.   Our group aims to dissect the functional relevance of chromatin organization by combining state-of-the-art methods in genetics, genomics, and computational biology, including novel single-cell techniques, using Drosophila[…]

Wellcome 3-Year PhD Programme in Stem Cell Biology & Medicine

Posted by on May 3rd, 2018

Department/Location: Wellcome – MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, Cambridge University Studentships starting October 2018 https://www.stemcells.cam.ac.uk/join-us/otheropportunities STEM CELL BIOLOGY Stem cells are defined by the dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate. These properties sustain homeostatic cell turnover in adult tissues and enable repair and regeneration throughout the lifetime of the organism. In contrast, pluripotent stem[…]
