Almost 3,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually in Ireland. In women with hormone-responsive early breast cancer, 5-10 years of endocrine therapy is recommended to prevent breast cancer recurrence and mortality, with a reduction in cancer recurrence of up to 50%.
  The role of USP11 in ER+ Breast Cancer
  Prof D O'Connor, Prof T Robson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

De-regulated estrogen receptor (ER) function is a key feature of approximately 70% of breast cancers. Given that the tumourigenic properties of ER primarily lie in its function as a growth-controlling transcription factor, we sought to discover novel modulators of ER transcriptional activity.

We have established one of the world’s most extensively phenotyped cohorts of patients undergoing cardiac surgery, the Oxford Heart Vessels & Fat (ox-HVF) cohort.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
