  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.
  PhD studentship in oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunology: Establishing a potent immuno-oncolytic virotherapy for colorectal cancer.
  Dr A Parker, Prof A Gallimore, Dr A Godkin
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
An exciting, fully funded PhD studentship opportunity. working at the interface between oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunotherapy to develop a refined, tumour targeted “immunovirotherapy” suitable for colorectal cancer treatment.
  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.
  Wellcome Trust 4-year Doctoral Programme in Genomic Medicine and Statistics
Wellcome Trust 4-year Doctoral Programme in Genomic Medicine and Statistics. Genomic technologies have transformed biomedical research over the last decade and are now having significant impact on the practice of clinical medicine.
  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.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/9. Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  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: 11 January 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: 7 January 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.
  Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine
 Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine. Research in. • The Cell Biology and Immunology of Cancer.
