  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Targeting lipid desaturation in aggressive cancers
  Dr B Peck, Prof K Hodivala-Dilke
Application Deadline: 19 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple Negative Breast cancer (TNBC) is a tumour type of significant clinical unmet need due to the lack of actionable biomarkers and efficacious targeted therapies.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  Using T cells to eradicate cancer
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in immuno-oncology and the development of novel immunotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of cancer.
  Analysis of tissue remodelling and lipid metabolism in glioblastoma cancer stem cells using advanced chemically- and mechanically-sensitive optical microscopy
  Dr F Siebzehnrubl, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal adult brain cancer. High patient mortality is partly attributed to glioblastoma cancer stem cells causing recurrence of therapy-resistant tumours.
  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.
