Tissues in the human body have a defined structure in that their growth and differentiation have developed in specific ways to create a cellular architecture that supports their function. Read more
Tissues in the human body have a defined structure in that their growth and differentiation have developed in specific ways to create a cellular architecture that supports their function. Following this fundamental principle that ‘from structure comes function’ we can develop in vitro models that resemble elements of the anatomy and physiology of real human tissues. This can be achieved through our understanding of tissue development and morphology, and the application of innovative technologies to build mature, functional tissue equivalents. Such innovation often occurs at the interface between disciplines such as biological, chemistry, and engineering.
In my laboratory, we specialise in the development of novel approaches to culturing cells in vitro, to enhance cell viability, growth, and differentiation, to enable the creation of human tissue mimetics that can subsequently be used for basic research, drug screening, and the assessment of chemicals. Cell biology-based Master by Research projects are available in tissue engineering in various areas, notably: epithelial biology (for example, skin, oral mucosa, intestine); neural biology (for example, in vitro models of neurological disorders); and basic biological mechanisms involved in stem cell differentiation, tissue development and function in vitro. In other projects, we are also interested in developing new cell technologies to further improve the culture and differentiation of human tissues in vitro and invite applicants who are interested in working at the interface between biology and the physical sciences. The exact nature of the project will be determined in discussions with the applicant but will involve engineering human tissues in vitro and their development, characterisation, and application in areas consistent with our fields of interest. For further information about our research please visit my research staff profile https://www.dur.ac.uk/biosciences/about/schoolstaff/profile/?id=1016
Successful applicants will join a busy and productive research group. The Masters projects on offer provide excellent training in the development of non-animal in vitro technologies, cell biology, tissue specific anatomy/physiology, engineering human tissues, stem cell science and cell differentiation, and advanced cell technologies. Students will master a range of cutting edge techniques to advance their research programme, including advanced 3D cell culture, cell and molecular biology, tissue analysis, histology, cell-based assays, and imaging (advanced light and electron microscopy). Students will train to become a research scientist, develop ownership of their project, and become expert in their field of interest. The Department of Biosciences at Durham University has excellent research facilities and training support programme to prepare students for a successful career in scientific research.
