  • SUMMER CALL – 15 APRIL 2018

An industry sponsored PhD project available to start in April 2018 in Manchester (Role of cutaneous circadian clocks in mediating skin repair and regeneration).

This project will be an ideal opportunity for someone to gain insights into circadian rhythms in human skin, and how they "gate" cellular responses to UV damage and topical treatments. There will be ample opportunities for the PhD student to interact with an industrial sponsor. The project is jointly supervised by Mike Sherratt and Qing-Jun Meng.
