Yenepoya University Stem Cell Biology PhD Openings | Yenepoya Recruits @ helpBIOTECH

Clinical Research

PhD (Allied Health Sciences) in the field of Stem Cell Biology at Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Centre, Yenepoya Research Centre, Yenepoya University, Mangalore)

In the field of “Stem Cell Biology” the research group of Dr(s) Bipasha Bose and Sudheer Shenoy P (Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Centre), Yenepoya Research Centre, Yenepoya University, Mangalore, India offers the following JRF/PhD projects:

1. Evaluation for the existence of CD34+/CD45- stem cells in all three germ layers and use of cells for cell therapy applications in mouse models of muscular dystrophy
2. Pure populations of Ocular stem cells and their molecular responses and salvage from chemicals and UV radiation induced damages
3. Bioenergetics of skeletal muscle stem cells
4. Improving the stemness of dental pulp stem cells for regenerative medicine applications


From the perspective of cell therapy and understanding the basic biology of adult stem cells, these projects aim to establish the basic molecular mechanisms for adding to the broad knowledge database.The Principal Investigators of these projects have extensive training from various international laboratories and have proven track record of their research. Prior publication of the PIs can be found at

Various techniques that these projects will utilize for addressing the pertinent questions involve culturing of stem cells, MTT assay, fluorescence activated cell sorting of stem cells, analytical flow cytometry, qRT-PCR gene expression analysis, western blotting, mouse models of muscular dystrophy and cell transplantation.

We offer

• The opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects using the state-of-the-art technology in the centre in a highly motivated research team
• A stimulating, diverse research environment of international standards
• Advanced training opportunities
• Research funding for carrying out the projects
• Free hostel facilities for the students

Required qualifications

• Masters in any field on Biological Sciences with 60% aggregate
• Motivation to solve complex biological problems and inquisitiveness to do science
• Independent worker, as well as, a good team player
• Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English
• Skills in any one technique used in biology (cell culture/ qRT-PCR, Western blot, small animal handling, flow cytometry)
• Skills in cell culture techniques, flow cytometry, qRT-PCR, Western blot and small animal handling
• Prior experience in working in any research laboratory
