  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round
All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Discovering and developing ways to inhibit the BubR1-PIDD interaction to enhance tumour cell death in response to radiation.
  Dr R Thompson, Prof J Sayers
Application Deadline: 18 April 2019
Supervisor(s). Dr Ruth Thompson, Professor Jon Sayers, Dr Victor Bolanos-Garcia (Oxford Brookes University). Resistance to radiotherapy is a major obstacle in cancer therapy.
  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round
A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  New analytical and simulation tools in clinical oncology
  Dr G Stupfler, Dr C Brignell
Applications accepted all year round
New analytical and simulation tools in clinical oncology. PhD studentship in Mathematical Sciences. School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham.
  The Bacterial Cell Wall in Life and Death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
The bacterial cell wall is essential for viability. The synthesis of its major structural polymer, peptidoglycan, is the target of crucial antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round
The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
  Pro-survival activities of the cancer-associated protein survivin
  Dr S Wheatley, Dr S Loughna
Applications accepted all year round
Survivin is a small adaptor protein that is upregulated in all human cancers and whose expression dictates a poor prognosis for the patients, and likely resistance to chemo- and radiation therapies.
  Optimising Repair of the Thoracic Wall Following Thoracic Surgery
  Dr C Bergeles
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Professor Kawal Rhode. Second Supervisor. Dr Christos Bergeles. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK.
