Cancer biology: identification of new treatment options for EML4-ALK driven lung cancer through understanding mechanisms of cell division and migration.

Lung cancer is the largest cause of cancer-related deaths in the UK and worldwide. While little progress has been made in long-term survival rates, we now have a good understanding of the genetic drivers raising the prospect of earlier diagnosis and more effective treatments. Read more

Developing new cancer therapeutic agents from foodstuff: characterizing galectin interaction with novel inhibitors

Applications will be reviewed until a suitable candidate is appointed. Galectins are a family of carbohydrate-binding proteins that are commonly over-expressed by many types of cancers such as colorectal, lung, breast, prostate cancer and melanoma. Read more

Regulation of nuclear actin in human cancer

Actin is a cytoskeletal protein that plays essential roles in many cellular processes, such as adhesion, intracellular trafficking, membrane dynamics and motility. Read more

Prostate cancer signalling to the bone micro-environment - from molecular characterization to potential novel therapies.

About the Project. Prostate cancer is responsible for over 52,000 cancer diagnoses within the UK per annum, and is the most common cancer in males, accounting for 27% of all new cancer cases diagnosed within men in 2016-2017. Read more

Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer

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. Read more

Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB) EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Chemical Biology: Innovation for the Life Sciences

Fully funded four-year studentships available for UK and International students. The Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is a postgraduate training programme, which forms the heart of the ICB at Imperial College London. Read more

Role of centriolar proteins in invasion

Primary cilia are microtubule-based organelles that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli. Although cilia house a number of oncogenic molecules (including Smoothened, KRAS, EGFR, and PDGFR), their precise role in cancer remains unclear. Read more
