The Tanos Laboratory at Brunel University London is offering a fully funded PhD studentship to carry out research on the role of distal appendages, cilia and ciliary signalling in kidney disease.

This research will involve using tissue culture, cloning, cell biology and microscopy techniques involving the well-known RPE-1 model cell line as well as RPTEC and IMCD3 cells. Later stages of the project will involve research in collaboration with Professor David Long at UCL GOS ICH. The student will also benefit from Dr. Tanos’ an extensive collaborative network.
