  Molecular mechanisms underpinning EML4 driven microtubule stabilization and cell migration
  Dr A M Fry, Prof K Brown
Application Deadline: 1 January 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.
  Studying cell-cell interactions during collective cell migration during Drosophila tissue morphogenesis
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr M Bischoff
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. To shape tissues and organs, cells undergo different behaviours, such as cell migration and shape change. Many morphogenetic processes rely on collective cell migration, where cells move coordinately as a group (Scarpa and Mayor, 2016).
  Regulation of cell migration in cancer
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in how cells move and how this movement, or migration, is controlled. Cell migration is an essential part of many normal biological processes and also many diseases.
  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.
  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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  (BBSRC DTP) Integrating mechanical and biochemical signals in cell migration through membrane dynamics
  Dr P Caswell, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr C Francavilla
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Cells respond to a myriad of cues from their environment, including mechanical signals from the extracellular matrix and biochemical cues from growth factors and cytokines.
  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.
  Can we predict cancer cell migration and spread using deep and machine learning of pathology images?
  Prof R H Insall, Dr J Edwards
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world leading centres for cancer research. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics and in vivo models of cancer.
