  Defining the role of RNA metabolic processes in colorectal cancer development
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr K Myant
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
This is one of several projects available on a CRUK funded PhD programme at the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Machine Learning for Discovery of Patient Journey-Wide Phenotypes and Colorectal Cancer Stratification
  Dr I Overton
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Dr. Ian Overton (QUB), Dr. Paul Miller (QUB), Dr. Helen Coleman (QUB), Dr. Seanna McTaggart (LifeArc). Colorectal cancer is the second highest cause of cancer mortality, associated with >880,000 deaths per annum worldwide.
  Understanding Colorectal Cancer risk loci that alter transcriptional dynamics
  Research Group: Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre
  Dr S Farrington, Prof M Dunlop
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
This is one of several projects available on a CRUK funded PhD programme at the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  PhD studentship in oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunology: Establishing a potent immuno-oncolytic virotherapy for colorectal cancer.
  Dr A Parker, Prof A Gallimore, Dr A Godkin
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
An exciting, fully funded PhD studentship opportunity. working at the interface between oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunotherapy to develop a refined, tumour targeted “immunovirotherapy” suitable for colorectal cancer treatment.
  Defining the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in therapy resistance in KRAS mutant colorectal cancer models
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr E Kerr, Prof I Mills, Dr M Wilson
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Mutant KRAS driven metabolic reprogramming is a key hallmark of cancer, providing the building blocks necessary to support aberrant cancer cell proliferation and is often achieved through rewiring glycolytic, mitochondrial and fatty acid metabolism, reportedly leading to mitochondrial dysfunction.
  Stratification of colorectal cancer using a combination of molecular biology and digital pathology
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr P Dunne, Prof D Longley, Dr M Loughrey
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Colorectal cancer (CRC) has one of the highest worldwide incidences (>1.3 million new cases), which results in ~610,000 deaths annually.
  Exploration of 5-fluorouracil resistance mechanisms in colorectal cancer using 5-FU-resistant xenograft models
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round
Despite therapeutic advances, colorectal cancer (CRC) still has a 45% mortality rate, and one of the major problems is the development of acquired resistance to treatment with anticancer drugs.
  Identification of the cellular targets of the Malaysian phytochemical pentamethoxyflavone, a candidate agent for the chemoprevention of colorectal cancer
  Dr C Serpell, Prof M Garrett
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) has risen at an alarming rate in Malaysia, becoming the second most common cancer in males and third most common in females.
  Tumour microenvironment and colorectal cancer development: understanding the mechanisms of the tumour growth
  Prof D Kerr, Dr S Cai
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Our group has conducted a series of international adjuvant trials of chemotherapy for colorectal cancer (Kerr RS. et al, (2016), Lancet Oncol, 17, 1543 – 1557).
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Targeting intestinal cancer using 3D organoid cell models
  Prof J R Sampson, Dr L Thomas
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Over one million new cases of colorectal cancer (CRC) are diagnosed worldwide each year. Inherited factors appear to be involved in up to 35% of cases.
