  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.
  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.
  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: 11 January 2019
Understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.
  Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship: Therapeutic targeting of HIF prolyl hydroxylases to eradicate cancer stem cells in tumours of unmet need
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Prof K Kranc
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
We are now accepting applications for a Cancer Research UK funded PhD studentship to start in September 2019. Barts Cancer Institute has an international reputation for cancer research, with world renowned experts in the field.
  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.
  Carbonic anhydrases as a molecular target to destroy the therapy resistant cancer stem cells in small cell lung cancer (RDF19/HLS/AS/GIELING)
  Dr R Gieling
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Cancer treatment is often compromised by populations of cells which are resistant to the therapy. These cells possess stemness properties and are therefore often regarded to be the cancer stem cells (CSCs).
  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.
