  Pore-scale modelling of drug transport in brain tumour tissue
  Dr W Zhan, Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant glioma is characterised as aggressive and invasive in clinic owing to its high mortality rate.
  Digital Pathology – transforming paediatric brain tumour classification through machine learning (Ref: SF20/APP/SCHWALBE)
  Dr E Schwalbe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medulloblastoma is the most common central nervous system tumour of childhood. Although advances in treatment have raised survival to ~75%, there remains significant numbers of patients who die of their disease.
  RET a novel therapeutic target to treat breast cancer brain metastasis
  Prof L Young, Dr A Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic disease recurrence occurs in up to 30% of breast cancer patients with approximately 20% of these tumours metastasising to the brain.
  Use of highly multi-modal PET and MRI data as a predictive biomarker of the site of recurrence in neuro-oncology
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Prof A Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary brain tumour including glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive and most common form in adults, continue to have a socioeconomic impact that is disproportionate to the tumour frequency due to our inability to obtain a cure in the vast majority of adult sufferers.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Non coding RNAs in Adrenocortical Cancer
  Prof G. Hutvagner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Industry, society or clinical need for project and scientific rationale. Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare disease which occurs with an annual incidence of 2-4 cases per million with a five-year survival of less than 16-38%.
  Use of Novel Magnetic Resonance Techniques to Investigate the Effect of Biochemical Environment on Cellular Metabolic Viability.
  Dr A Kennerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Over the last 30 years technological advancements in the fabrication of micro electrodes have permitted in-depth probing of cellular chemistry.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
