  Is breast cancer more aggressive when developed by rural-dwellers compared to those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Prof Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND.
  Genomic determinants of long-term survival in ovarian cancer
  Research Group: Cancer Genetics & Genomics Laboratory
  Prof D. Bowtell, Dr D Garsed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease in which only ~30% of women survive 5 years or more. Despite a poor prognosis, a subset of patients are highly responsive to chemotherapy, and some become long-term survivors (>10 years survival).
  Transcriptional heterogeneity and resistance to therapy in prostate cancer
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a standard treatment for prostate cancer that works well in many cases but rapidly fails in others.
  A PhD applying machine learning techniques to Next Generation Sequencing Big Data to improve the prediction of prostate cancer patient outcome (BrewerU20FMH)
  Dr D Brewer, Prof C Cooper
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and an estimated 307,000 men annually die from PCa worldwide.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Cancer Research UK 4-year PhD Programme in Integrative Cancer Epidemiology

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking enthusiastic scientists to join the next generation of inter-disciplinary researchers who will exploit the wealth of new data being generated in population health sciences.
  Computational simulation of tumour formation and progression
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours comprise a complex mix of related but distinct cellular subpopulations that both compete and complement one another. These dynamics strongly influence how and when a tumour forms as well as its response to therapy, however there are hard to observe directly.
  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.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  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.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  PhD Studentship in Cancer Research - Targeting glycan sugar groups to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer
  Dr J Munkley
Application Deadline: 29 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 28 September 2020. 3 Year PhD. Overview. This PhD project will explore if glycan sugars can be exploited to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will remain open until the position has been filled. In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
