  Molecular mechanisms underpinning EML4 driven microtubule stabilization and cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof K Brown
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
EML4 is a poorly characterised microtubule-associated protein [1]. The purpose of this cell biology-focused PhD project is to explore the molecular mechanisms through which EML4 regulates microtubule dynamics and cell migration.
  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.
  Using vaccinia virus to understand Rho GTPase regulation and crosstalk
  Dr M Way
Application Deadline: 18 May 2019
This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Michael Way’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites that critically depend on their hosts to generate new progeny.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Dr M Krause
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round
Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  4 Year Wellcomne Trust PhD Programme: Modelling of collective cell migration
  Dr R Sknepnek
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Collective cell migration – a process in which cohorts of cells move as a group while maintaining their mutual connections with each cell coordinating its movement with its neighbours – is a fundamental process in development and tissue regeneration.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round
Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  Integrating mechanical and chemical cues in stem cell migration and differentiation
  Dr P Caswell, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round
Adult stem cells are found in most tissues, and the interaction between stem cells and their niche tightly controls their self-renewal and differentiation state.
  To study a cytoplasmic form of transcription factor AP4 that can control cell morphology and migration
  Dr S-K Chiu
Applications accepted all year round
Transcription factor AP4 is a nuclear protein known to control the gene expression related to cell proliferation, apoptosis, cell migration in human cancer cells.
  How do cancer cells migrate? Investigating the mechanisms of migration (MUELLERAU19SF)
  Dr A Mueller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The migration of cancerous cells is controlled by a number of pro-inflammatory macromolecules such as chemokines and their receptors.
