About

Developmental Biology course from The University of Manchester enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Developmental Biology.

Overview

Developmental Biology is the study of the processes by which complex organisms develop from fertilised eggs.

The Developmental Biology course from The University of Manchester investigates the fundamental events underlying normal development and how these are subverted in disease.

Specific interests include:

  • pluripotency, cell fate specification and differentiation;
  • patterning and organogenesis;
  • cell signalling;
  • epithelial development and morphogenesis;
  • cell adhesion in development;
  • the developmental role of genes involved in human diseases including epidermal, heart and craniofacial defects.

The Healing Foundation Centre investigates the cellular and molecular basis of tissue repair and regeneration.

Teaching and learning

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one year (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.

Career opportunities

Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate. Find out more on the  Careers  page.
