  Assessment of excitability of Human pain neurons pain neurons using a novel calcium imaging assay
  Dr M Nassar
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Pain is an important warning system to guard against tissue damage. Pathological pain, however, has no warning value and has huge economical, social and personal costs on society.
  Targeting the earliest steps in the aggregation process of the intrinsically unfolded protein alpha-Synuclein, the most validated target in Parkinson’s disease.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof M Auer, Dr T Kunath
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
α-Synuclein is a small presynaptic protein whose aggregation and fibrillation are considered hallmarks of Parkinson’s disease.
  Development of a spectroscopic assay for Potato Virus Y (PVY)
  Prof J Tucker, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Potato virus Y (PVY) is a major and prevalent potato virus, causing necrosis (dead spots in leaves and tubers) that leads to a significant reduction in crop yield.
  A Gastrointestinal Epithelial Organoid Assay to Identify Non-Toxic Chemoradiation Combinations for Cancer Treatment
  Prof A Kiltie, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Every year worldwide half a million patients receive radiotherapy to their abdomen and/or pelvis for tumours including rectal, oesophageal, bladder, prostate or cervix cancer.
  RATRACK - Directional Sensitive Nuclear Recoil Detectors for Homeland Security and Environmental Radon Assay
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Sheffield particle physics group is acknowledged by the UK research council STFC as having one of the best programmes of spin-out activity designed for using particle physics technology in industry and for society.
  Probing Conformational Change in Protein Kinases Using Single Molecule Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Unnatural Amino Acids
  Dr C Dodson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
Supervisory team. Lead supervisor -. Dr Charlotte Dodson, Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology, University of Bath. Co-supervisors -.
  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.
  DNA Strategic Epigenetic Biomarkers in Melanoma
  Dr C Proby, Prof C N A Palmer
Applications accepted all year round
Hypothesis. That tumour-specific DNA methylation present in free circulating DNA from melanoma patients will enable early detection of disease relapse or metastasis facilitating life-preserving benefit from additional therapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors.
