  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.
  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 effect of telomere length on endothelial cell function
  Dr V Codd, Prof NJ Samani
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Telomeres are protein bound DNA repeat structures at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, Telomere length (TL) has been proposed as a marker of biological ageing and shorter TL associates with several age related diseases, including coronary artery disease (CAD).
  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).
  (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.
  Role of Desmoglein-3 in regulating the YAP-Hippo pathway in cancer
  Dr H Wan
Applications accepted all year round
Project Description. Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD within a multidisciplinary and integrative research team in The Centre of Immunobiology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute of Dentistry.
  Biophysics of Self-Assembled Protein Nanosheets for Stem Cell-Based Biotechnologies
  Dr J Gautrot
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A PhD studentship in the design of novel self-assembled protein nanosheets and their application in stem cell-based biotechnologies is available in the group of Dr J.
  The effect of polysialyltransferase modulation on tumour cell migration
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr R Falconer
Applications accepted all year round
One of the main reasons for failure of cancer therapy today is an inability to control tumour dissemination, with secondary tumour deposits the cause of morbidity.
