  Finding a therapy for triple negative breast cancer patients
  Dr K. Britt
Applications accepted all year round
Triple negative breast cancers are a poor prognosis breast cancer with limited therapeutic options as they do not express estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors or Her2.
  Investigating how platelet-derived ncRNAs are altering the genetics of breast cancer cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Boyne, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
Platelet-derived microparticles (PMPs) are capable of delivering non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) to cells that modulate gene expression.
  Translating discovery science: DUBs that regulate centrosome clustering, an Achilles’ heel of cancer
  Prof J Coulson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project is supervised by Prof Judy Coulson, together with Prof Ian Prior (signalling expertise) and Dr Mark Morgan (breast cancer biology expertise) at the University of Liverpool, in collaboration with Dr Richard Jackson (statistics; Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit) and Prof Louise Jones (breast explant culture; Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University London).
  Exploring mechanisms of resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy in breast cancer
  Dr C Kanthou, Prof N Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent angiogenesis inducer and is often overexpressed in cancer. Circulating levels of VEGF as well as tumour microvessel density are of prognostic value in breast cancer.
  Investigating the anti-cancer effect of hop β -acid Lupulone and its synthetic derivatives on breast cancer cells
  Dr G Pirianov
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/biomedical-research-group.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Application of data science to inherited genetic variants of apoptosis genes and susceptibility to breast cancer
  Prof A Cox, Dr A Droop, Dr K Walters
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The identification of the breast and ovarian cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 two decades ago has resulted in both improved risk assessment for patients and the use of PARP-inhibitors for treatment.
  Application of data science to inherited genetic variants of apoptosis genes and susceptibility to breast cancer
  Prof A Cox, Dr K Walters
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Background. The identification of the breast and ovarian cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 two decades ago has resulted in both improved patient risk assessment and the use of PARP-inhibitors for treatment.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Molecular pathology data science studies of breast cancer
  Dr J Figueroa, Dr A Sims, Assoc Prof N Tobin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Datasets linked to molecular phenotypes are desperately needed to provide academia and industry the real-world evidence needed for discovery, validation and implementation of new biomarkers for improved cancer outcomes.
  Functional significance of IL-1B in breast cancer bone metastases
  Dr P Ottewell
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and leading cause of death in women worldwide. Up to 75% of patients with advanced breast cancer develop bone metastases and patients with this condition have a median survival of around 2-3 years.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round
Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
