  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Quantitative proteomic analysis of dysregulated adhesion protein localisation in patient-derived cancer cells
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr A Byron, Prof M Frame, Prof R Zubarev, Dr A Sims
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Summary. This project seeks to use proteomic data and computational approaches to identify signatures of cell adhesion proteins that are mislocalised in cells from brain cancer patients.
  Proteomic analyses of adhesion signalling in cancer
  Prof M J Humphries, Dr C Jorgensen
Applications accepted all year round
Why adhesion? Cell surface adhesion receptors play key roles in the control of cell movement, survival, division and differentiation, and they underpin a metazoan (multicellular) existence.
  Investigating the effect of nanoscale vibration cues on material surfaces for preventing bacterial adhesion
  Dr P Mendes, Dr T Overton
Applications accepted all year round
All organisms respond to vibration, and bacteria are no exception. It is well established that external vibration can affect bacterial phenotypes, including surface adhesion, proliferation and virulence.
  Adhesion force regulation as a mechanism of cell adaptation to tissue stiffness and composition in health and disease
  Dr I Barsukov
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cells have amazing ability to adapt to different conditions. They form complex multi-cellular tissues, differentiate and migrate.
  Mechanisms of microtubule organization by cell-cell adhesion in epithelial cells.
  Dr N Bulgakova
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The correct organization of the microtubule cytoskeleton is critical for the survival and normal function of cells in a multicellular organism.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round
The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Development of scanning laser ophthalmoscopy to improve treatment in Diabetic Retinopathy
  Dr T Thevar, Dr I J Crane
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a frequent microvascular complication in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Early detection or prediction of onset is important as impaired function in the eye cannot be restored.
  (BBSRC DTP)Understanding structure and function of the mechanosensors talin and vinculin
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof C Baldock, Dr A Roseman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Any aberration in the cells’ ability to sense their environment leads to severe health deficiencies including cancer, deficiencies in wound-healing and inflammation.
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Functional hybrid PVD-coated/textured engineering bio-surfaces for reduced corrosion, wear and enhanced cellular adhesion
  Dr T Liskiewicz, Dr M Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Tribology (iT-CDT), in collaboration with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is offering a fully funded 4 - year PhD.
