  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: 8 April 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.
  Nano4CaRE: (Nanoparticles for Cancer Radiotherapy Enhancement)
  Dr N Bricklebank, Dr N Cross, Dr R Leyland
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
TPP-functionalisation will promote the uptake of nanoparticles by cancer cells. Radiosensitisation will be improved by varying the size and ligand density of the TPP-nanoparticles.
  Radiomics for cancer diagnosis and patient outcome prediction
  Dr J Korte, Dr N Hardcastle
Applications accepted all year round
adiomics is an emerging field that aims to extract vital information from growing collections of medical imaging and patient data.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  CRUK Clinical Research Training Fellowship: developing novel T-cell immunotherapy for paediatric high grade glioma
  Dr K Straathof, Prof D Hargrave, Prof J Anderson
Application Deadline: 27 March 2019
Overall aim of the PhD project is to develop novel T-cell immunotherapy for paediatric high grade glioma. Brain tumours are the major cause of cancer-related death in children, overtaking the other paediatric cancers including leukaemias and other solid tumours.
  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round
The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round
The project will test the potential of a molecular mechanism that we recently discovered, in modulating brain structural plasticity versus neurodegeneration.
  The road to personalised anticancer therapy : utilising the LAT-1 transporter as a selective means for iron deprivation (ref: SF18/APP/Veuger)
  Dr S Veuger
Applications accepted all year round
Recent statistics show that 1:2 people in the UK will develop cancer during their life. Of particular interest are new therapeutics that potentially allow a specific focus on tumours that are aggressive, metastatic and associated with poor prognosis.
  Developing novel treatments for rare childhood brain tumours
  Prof R Gilbertson
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Despite decades of research, the treatment of brain tumours has remained largely unchanged. These cancers are treated with an aggressive combination of neurosurgery, radiation and chemotherapy that fails to cure but damages the surrounding normal brain, leaving survivors with devastating side effects.
  Analysing the factors that regulate expression of blood-brain barrier drug transporter proteins
  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round
In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
