4-year PhD Studentship: Targeting cancer stem cells: Selective culture method and drug search

Cancer stem cells are a small population of cells in tumours maintaining the tumorigenic capacity (1). They are featured as quiescent (i.e., dormant), in contrast to the majority of cancer cells that actively proliferate under the aberrant regulation. Read more

Macrophage driven therapy resistance in AML: from macrophage subset characterisation to therapeutic targeting.

  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
Reference. SHLS20065. Background. Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a common blood cancer in adults; with its incidence increasing with age, AML cases are predicted to double by 2030. Read more

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

Mechanisms of resistance to anticancer drugs that define heterogeneity of cancer cell populations

Fully funded PhD study. Development of resistance to chemotherapy is a leading cause of treatment failure. Drug-resistance mechanisms typically involve mutations in specific proteins or changes in their levels of expression. Read more

Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT): Investigation of the role in acquired drug resistance in colon cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Despite treatment advances, one of the most common cancers, colorectal cancer (CRC), still has a 45% mortality rate, and one of the major problems is the build-up of resistance to cancer drugs during treatment (‘acquired resistance’) such that over time the drugs stop working. Read more
