MSc by Research in Molecular Cell Signalling

Durham University Department of Biosciences

About the course

An MSc project by Research is available in the group of Dr. Martin Schröder in the Department of Biosciences at Durham University to study stress signalling mechanisms originating from the endoplasmic reticulum.

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress contributes to the development and progression of many diverse diseases affecting secretory tissues, such as diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. The successful candidate will employ modern genetic and molecular techniques to understand the underlying cell biological mechanisms in endoplasmic reticulum stress signalling that maintain the homeostasis of the endoplasmic reticulum.

Specifically, the student will use a combination of synthetic molecular biology, yeast genetic, and biochemical approaches to characterise how dephosphorylation of the
