We have 40 cancer genetics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Dietary modulation of amino acids to improve chemotherapy response in breast cancer

This is a unique opportunity for PhD study in the world-leading Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK CI), to start a research career in an environment committed to training outstanding cancer research scientists of the future. Read more

Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death

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. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

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. Read more

Tissue Regeneration and Cancer MSc Research Programme

The Tissue Regeneration and Cancer MSc Research Programme at the University of Glasgow, will deliver high quality research, training and mentorship to excellent and ambitious students interested in cancer research, including- but not limited to- its intersection with stem cell biology, immunity, metabolism, development, regenerative biology, and behavioural science.

Cancer Epigenetics project

Broad Project Summary: Cancer is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Epigenetic changes are now recognised as a hallmark feature of cancer, but our understanding of factors that are responsible for tumour spread still remains limited. Read more

Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity. Read more

Take epigenetic diagnostics “from bench to bedside”

Cancer initiation and progression are not solely driven by mutations. Environmental factors, genetics or differentiation dynamics can put the cell in a state that is more susceptible to cancerous transformation. Read more

Development of chemical tools and bioactive compounds to explore the importance of enzyme activity in cancer diseases

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a modern chemical methodology, which aims to synthesise small molecules that cover new chemical space with the possibility of finding unexplored biological targets or pathways that may be important for disease progression. Read more

Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement. Read more

Why do cancers cells re-express meiotic SYCP1 protein?

The aim of meiosis is to generate gametes by recombining the chromosomes and reducing the genome from diploid to haploid. However, in mitosis haploid genome and recombination have catastrophic, oncogenic outcomes. Read more

Postgraduate Research Opportunities at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry

To deliver our research strategy of ‘Better Health for All' and our aspiration to train the research leaders of the future, the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (top 10% faculties of medicine in the world, QS2022) has opened opportunities for self-funded PhD students in multiple areas of biomedical and translational research across six internationally recognised Research Institutes.
