  Overcoming drug resistance in cancer using nano-encapsulated combination therapies
  Dr M Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Despite advances in cancer treatment, the development of drug resistance remains a major issue affecting long term patient survival.
  Targeting the Achilles’ heel – dissecting drug resistance in ovarian cancer
  Dr G Smith, Dr M Ferguson
Applications accepted all year round
Ovarian cancer, the most common cause of gynaecological cancer death, is frequently diagnosed when the disease is already advanced, when surgery is not always possible.
  Identification of drug resistance genes in Fasciola hepatica using a combined in vitro phenotyping and pooled genotyping approach
  Dr J Hodgkinson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fasciola hepatica, the common liver fluke is a major cause of disease and production loss in sheep and cattle in the UK and changes in farming practices and climate are leading to increased prevalence and movement of infection into new areas of the UK.
  Understanding the role of the globin cytoglobin in cancer cell drug resistance
  Dr N J Hodges
Applications accepted all year round
Cytoglobin is related to haemoglobin and myoglobin but has a very poorly understood biological function. Work in our lab has shown that expression of cytoglobin in cancer cells alters mitochondrial function and affords protection from anti-cancer drugs including cisplatin.
  Understanding drug-resistance in myeloid cancer
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round
Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  ChromDesign-ITN: An epigenomic approach to study resistance and recurrence in acute myeloid leukemia (subproject ESR12); Hosting institution: IEO — European Institute of Oncology, Milan, Italy
  Prof Saverio Minucci, Prof Genevieve Almouzni
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
"ChromDesign” is a European innovative and interdisciplinary Research and Training network, which aims to characterize the impact of the 3D chromatin organization on gene regulation during cellular differentiation and in several human disorders, and to train junior researchers in the biomedical field, either in academia or in the private sector.
  Mechanism of Cancer Therapeutic Resistance
  Prof Mu Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Limitations of current therapeutic options and acquired drug resistance cause hundreds and thousands of cancer patients to die each year.
  Applying genomic surveillance to understand Leishmania infantum virulence in Brazil
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Leishmania infantum is a globally-distributed parasite that is transmitted via sand. flies. Leishmania infantum and the related Leishmania donovani cause 20,000-.
  The role of tumour microenvironment interactions in melanoma therapy resistance
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake, Dr M Sutherland
Applications accepted all year round
The incidence of malignant melanoma has steadily increased over the past 30 years, and it is predicted that 76,250 new cases will be diagnosed in the US and over 10,000 in the UK this year.
  Gaining insight into the dynamics of drug-cancer cell interactions with the aid of continuous and hybrid multiscale models
  Dr M Cerasuolo, Dr J Foster, Dr A Burbanks
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Mathematics and Physics and will be supervised by Dr Marianna Cerasuolo, Dr Jamie Foster and Dr Andrew Burbanks.
