We have two fully funded PhD positions in the Wheeler lab at University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.
NEUcrest is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme. The neural crest (NC) is an essential stem cell population of the vertebrate embryos that gives rise to various tissues in the body such as the cranial facial cartilage, peripheral nervous system and the Adrenal Medulla. NEUcrest focuses on integrating academic, clinical and industrial research for a better understanding of neural crest development and neural crest related diseases called Neurocristopathies. These pathologies are a major group of congenital diseases in human, and a heavy societal concern. The NEUcrest network comprises 20 partners in academia, industry and hospitals from seven European countries, gathered in a synergistic effort to advance knowledge and outreach about these diseases.
