  Ran GTPase as a potential novel therapeutic target in EMT transdifferentiation and breast cancer stem cell (BCSC) survival during metastatic development
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Prof R Morgan, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr M Isreb, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide. Accumulating evidence suggests that local disease recurrence and metastatic lesions, the major causes of patient mortality, are due to a subset of aggressive cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs).
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology: Understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies
  Dr A Mead, Dr S Thongjuea, Dr B Psalia
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.
  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
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.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round
Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: Mechanisms of asymmetric stem cell division
  Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Despite tremendous progress the origin of cancer is still a matter of debate for many malignancies, but it is clear that stem cells play an important part in this context.
  Targeting The Thymus To Improve Immune Recovery Following Stem Cell Transplantation For Cancer Treatment
  Prof G Anderson, Dr W Jenkinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The treatment of cancer frequently requires the transplantation of bone marrow to regenerate the immune system that is damaged following ablative therapy.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  The effect of polysialyltransferase modulation on tumour cell migration
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr R Falconer
Applications accepted all year round
One of the main reasons for failure of cancer therapy today is an inability to control tumour dissemination, with secondary tumour deposits the cause of morbidity.
