  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  A key role for FKBPL in the regulation of cancer stem cell signalling and the microenvironment; therapeutic implications for tumour growth and metastasis
  Prof T Robson, Prof D O'Connor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a special type of cell found within tumours that are able to undergo unlimited self-renewal and are highly resistant to therapy.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  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.
  Normal and Leukaemic Blood Stem/Progenitor Cell Biology
  Prof P Vyas, Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory studies the mechanisms regulating normal blood stem and progenitor cell differentiation and how these are perturbed in blood cancers such as Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS).

  Characterizing the heterogeneity of stem cells in the normal breast and breast tumours
  Dr A Ucar, Prof K R Brennan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue-restricted stem cells are crucial in supporting the development and maintenance of normal tissues. This is also true for tumours, as only a small population of tumour cells, which are known as cancer stem cells, have the unique stemness features and tumour-initiating capacity.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
  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.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  Single Cell Genomics
  Prof A Mead
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology (HSCB) Laboratory is focused on understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.

  Single Cell Biology of Hematopoietic Stem- and Progenitor Cells in Blood Cancer and Ageing
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Prof P Vyas
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The focus of the Nerlov laboratory is to use single cell genomics and functional analysis, combined with advanced mouse genetics, to study the function of hematopoietic stem– and progenitor cells in normal development and during ageing.

  Dr P Ordonez Moran, Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round
