  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Modelling of functional and tumour heterogeneity in human AML arisen from different cells-of-origin
  Dr E So, Dr A Thrasher
Application Deadline: 18 March 2019
This 4-year PhD studentship is offered by the Cancer Research UK City of London Centre. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) together with acute lymphoid leukemia (ALL) account for about 1/3 of all paediatric cancers.
  The tumour micro-environment as a determinant of antigen presentation and immune response in oesophageal cancer
  Dr M Rose-Zerilli
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Lead Institute / Faculty. Cancer Sciences Unit, Faculty of Medicine. Main Supervisor. Dr Matthew Rose-Zerilli; [email protected] Other members of the supervisory team.
  Regulation and function of cytotoxic lymphocytes
  Dr I. Voskoboinik, Prof J.A. Trapani
Applications accepted all year round
Cytotoxic lymphocytes recognize and kill cancerous and virus-infected cells through cytotoxic granule exocytosis pathway. Cytotoxic granules store a pore-forming protein, perforin, and serine proteases, granzymes.
  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Molecular pathology data science studies of breast cancer
  Dr J Figueroa, Dr A Sims, Assoc Prof N Tobin
Application Deadline: 8 April 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.
  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.
  Dynamic changes in FANC protein expression in ovarian cancer– impact on chemosensitivity and resistance
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr S Langdon, Prof M Arends
Application Deadline: 21 April 2019
This 3-year PhD studentship funded by the Melville Trust is available to start in September 2019 at the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round
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.
