  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Use of Routinely Collected Health Data to Predict Sudden Death and Other Catastrophic Events
  Research Group: Institute of Health and Wellbeing
  Dr P Pellicori, Dr J Dalton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Pierpaolo Pellicori. Dr Jeff Dalton. Prof Roderick Murray-Smith. Prof John Cleland. PhD project summary. Sudden, often unheralded, death is one of the most common modes of death.
  Characterisation of cell death mechanisms in cancer: protein interactions in p53/PERP-mediated apoptosis
  Prof L Paraoan, Dr I Prior
Applications accepted all year round
Apoptosis or programmed cell death is a tightly regulated intrinsic process of programmed cell death used by cells in all multicellular organisms, including humans, to control tissue homeostasis or to initiate their own death following malfunction or damage beyond repair.
  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.
  Re-sensitizing cells to death: using the protein complexes that regulate apoptosis to treat cancer
  Dr J Fox, Dr S Macip
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Whether a cell dies or not has profound consequences on health. If programmed cell death (apoptosis) is not correctly executed it can lead to cancer and other diseases.
  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.
  Life and death of chemical reaction fronts – a field,experimental and numerical study
  Dr T Mueller, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In the geosphere, fluid-mediated mineral reactions are of pivotal importance in governing the redistribution of elements and isotopes.
  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.
