From the RDM Image Competition 2015

Primary human dermal fibroblasts were treated with a macromolecular crowder (Ficoll 400) that condenses extracellular matrix (ECM) for a more accurate physiological representation. Fibrillar collagen (green) and other ECM proteins may be quantified using high-throughput imaging system for the identification of potential drug target or gene pathway involved in collagen metabolism and fibrosis.

The RDM Scholars Programme is the Department's flagship programme, providing a number of fully funded 4-year scholarships for basic science students. The programme is open to outstanding candidates of any nationality. An RDM Scholarship covers University and College fees and a generous stipend of £18,000 per annum. For October 2016 entry, the application deadline is Friday 8th January 2016 at 12 noon (midday).
