  The role of the IGF axis in bladder cancer progression
  Dr C Perks, Prof J Holly
Applications accepted all year round
Bladder cancer is the 4 th most common in cancer in males and 13 th in women with a lifetime risk of 1:40 for men and 1:110 for women; the ten year survival rates are only approx.
  First steps towards gene therapy for congenital bladder disease
  Dr N Roberts, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
In the congenital disease urofacial syndrome (UFS), urinary bladder voiding is incomplete due to poor co-ordination between detrusor muscle contraction and bladder outlet relaxation.
  The Automatic BioData Scientist: Neural approaches for stochastic disease modelling
  Dr C Yau
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
Mathematical models of disease evolution seek to specify the complex mechanistic relationships between many measurable quantities over space and time.
  Molecular mechanisms of neuronal ageing in bladder and bowel neurons (ref: SF18/APP/Ranson)
  Dr R Ranson
Applications accepted all year round
Ageing results in a progressive loss of physiological function resulting in a reduced quality of life in the elderly. One of the more prevalent conditions associated with ageing is incontinence-both faecal and urinary.
  Drivers of epithelial growth and repair in tissue-specific differentiation programmes
  Prof J Southgate, Dr G Evans
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Epithelial tissues are found at interfaces between the body and external environment and show site-specific functions, such as nutrient absorption by the gut and urinary barrier defence by the bladder.
  Resurrecting ancestral human sugars: a novel ‘molecular archaeology’ approach to cancer immunotherapy using chemical bioconjugation
  Dr M A Fascione, Prof G Davies, Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Background. Human cells surfaces are coated in a thick layer of sticky sugars called the glycocalyx. The composition of this coating is dynamic and changes depending on cell type and function.
  Cytochromes P450 in Cancer: Opportunities for Development of Personalised Medicine - Project 1
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
The improved understanding of cancer biology provides opportunities for the development of molecular targeted therapies.
  Cytochromes P450 in Cancer: Opportunities for Development of Personalised Medicine - Project 2
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
The improved understanding of cancer biology provides opportunities for the development of molecular targeted therapies.
  BAOU18CPRT Anti-cancer activities of dietary isothiocyanates
  Dr Y Bao
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019
Sulforaphane (SFN) is an isothiocyanate (ITC) derived from glucosinolate (glucoraphanin) under the action of myrosinase when the plant tissue is damaged or chewed.
  Defining how cancer cells acquire resistance to microtubule-based drugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr J Welburn, Dr N Carragher
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Taxol (paclitaxel) is a major drug used in the treatment of solid cancers (breast, lung, ovarian, bladder). However, resistance to taxol arises regularly and thus it is critical to find ways to circumvent this resistance.
