PhD Studentship – RSCI & UCC

The aim of this project is to develop novel collagen-based scaffolds functionalised for the delivery of RNA-based therapeutics using nanoparticles recently developed by researchers based in the SFI-funded CÚRAM and AMBER centres. The scaffolds developed will be used as novel platforms for tissue regeneration, for in vitro disease modelling, and to study drug development and delivery.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 14th July 2017

To Apply:  CVs with the names and addresses of three referees should be submitted to Prof. Fergal O'Brien, Dept. of Anatomy, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

PhD Studentship – SurgaColl Technologies

The aim of this project will be to enhance the bone and cartilage-forming potential of materials developed by TERG/SurgaColl by using DNA or RNA, to control mesenchymal stem cell hypertrophy.

The project will be carried out in the Tissue Engineering Research Group (TERG) at the RCSI in close collaboration with SurgaColl Technologies where the researcher will spend time in the manufacturing facility. Spun-out from the TERG in 2010 based on two products developed by Prof. O’Brien and Dr. Gleeson, SurgaColl is an innovative medical device company developing and commercializing regenerative products for the repair of bone, cartilage and other tissues.
