  MSc by Research Programme: Functions & Applications of a Novel Embryonic Stem Cell Signalling Pathway
  Dr GM Findlay
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors
  Dr L Lander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.
  Modulating cell signalling regulates morphogenesis of the developing nervous system
  Dr M E Pownall, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors such as FGFs and Wnts are important signalling molecules that regulate development and are also known to cause disease when they go wrong.
  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.
  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.
  Regulation of cell cycle progression in skeletal muscle stem cells
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscles to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of adult skeletal muscle stem cells called satellite cells.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Research Group: Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics
  Dr M Krause, Dr K Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Parkinson's Disease Prize PhD Studentship
  Prof M Muqit
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a leading cause of neurodegeneration in man. Mutations in the PINK1 kinase lead to autosomal recessive PD.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does CDK1 regulate NICD turnover in a cell cycle dependant manner in Drosophila Melanogaster?
  Prof J K Dale, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Investigation of the role of post-translational modifications in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget.
  Novel G Protein-Coupled Receptor interactions with RAMP accessory proteins
  Dr G Richards, Prof T Skerry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell signalling is critical to multicellular organisms and underlies physiology and diseases. Understanding of the ways cells sense and respond to hormones and growth factors is a constantly-evolving field.
  Proteomic analyses of adhesion signalling in cancer
  Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Why adhesion? Cell surface adhesion receptors play key roles in the control of cell movement, survival, division and differentiation.
  Dynamic cell fate decisions: linking mechanical signals and protein expression dynamics in the developing eye to understand human developmental disorders
  Dr Cerys Manning, Prof N Papalopulu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inherited developmental disorders account for much of childhood visual impairment. Development of the eye requires cell fate decisions that balance stem cell proliferation and differentiation.
