  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Structural studies of the TPLATE complex
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The TPLATE complex (TPC) is essential for endocytosis in plants, yet it is evolutionary lost from yeasts and animals, pointing to the fact that endocytosis is mechanistically regulated differently.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.
  Search for new regulators of intracellular trafficking in plants
  Dr T Nodzynski, Dr M Zwiewka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are the organisms providing oxygen for the biosphere being the fundamental element of food chain, therefore, basic understanding of molecular mechanisms guiding their growth is essential.
  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  The endosomal network in health and disease
  Prof P J Cullen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 25% of the human genome encodes for integral membrane proteins (around 5,500 proteins). Efficient intracellular transport of these proteins, and associated proteins and lipids (together termed ‘cargos’), is essential for organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and quality control.
  CRISPR CAS9 Genome Editing to Study PIP5K1A in Cancer Cells
  Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human PIP5K1A is one of a family of kinases that generate the signalling molecule phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) in cells.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  Using the fly kidney to develop new treatments for genetic kidney diseases
  Prof A Ong, Dr N Bulgakova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polycystic kidney disease is the most common hereditary cause of kidney failure in man. It comprises a spectrum of diseases of which Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common form in adults and Nephronophthisis (NPHP) the most common form in children.
  The long and winding roads of the cell
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular membrane trafficking is essential for many cellular processes and its impairment leads to over 80 major human diseases.
