  Developing new antibody-based therapeutics for neuroblastoma
  Prof A Sala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic neuroblastoma is a cancer of the nervous system that kills the majority of the affected children. Although there have been tremendous advances in the understanding of the molecular causes of the disease, patients are still treated with highly toxic mixtures of chemicals and radiation.
  Disrupting biofilm formation in nosocomial pathogens
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A biofilm by definition is a structured community of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced polysaccharide matrix and adherent to an inert or living surface.
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Main Aim. To identify genetic and non-genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke are the leading causes of mortality worldwide and are expected to keep rising.
  Investigating Therapeutic Effect of Different Antioxidants in Friedreich’s Ataxia (FRDA)
  Dr S Anjomani-Virmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by epigenetic silencing of the frataxin gene. It is the most common inherited ataxia, affecting 1:50,000 Caucasians, and is characterised by neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus and skeletal deformities.
  Involvement of the matrix protein SPARC in the dynamic interaction between tumour and host cells
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr E Karteris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour growth depends on the crosstalk between malignant and surrounding stromal cells (fibroblasts, osteoblasts, endothelial cells and inflammatory cells).
  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.
  Mechanisms of cilia biogenesis and signalling
  Dr B Tanos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cilia are sensory organelles that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli from the environment. They arise from centrioles and function as “antennae” that receive and integrate extracellular signals.
  Role of cilia in oncogenic signaling and drug resistance
  Dr B Tanos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary cilia are microtubule-based antennae that detect mechanical and chemical stimuli. Although cilia house a number of oncogenic molecules (including Smoothened, KRAS, EGFR, and PDGFR), their precise role in cancer remains unclear.
  Prevention of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Pregnant Women; Targeting Early Pregnancy Intervention to Women at Risk
  Dr S White, Dr A Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity in pregnancy increases the risk of gestational diabetes (GDM) and associated adverse outcomes. NICE guidelines recommend that all obese women have an oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks' gestation for detection of GDM.
