  Is epigenetic information is exchanged between sister chromatids to restore chromatin structure and maintain epigenetic information after DNA replication?
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA in eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin. Far from being an inert packing material, chromatin is a rich source of information for gene regulation.
  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).
  Unveiling mechanisms of differentiation in neuroblastoma: from pathway discovery towards epigenetic-targeted drugs
  Dr O Piskareva
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell fate determination and differentiation are processes that are crucial in developmental biology, which assigns cells their functional roles and gives them a unique identity.
  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
  Epigenetic contribution to grafting induced vigour in Solanaceous plants
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Grafting is a long-standing agronomical method used to improve plants production since more than 4000 years ago, consisting in physically joining two plants together, generally referred as rootstock (part below the ground) and scion (part above the ground).
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The role of phase separation in epigenetic inheritance by Polycomb Group proteins.
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, the role of phase separation in organizing macromolecules in cells is increasingly appreciated. This includes the organization of chromatin into physical and functional domains.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  MSc by Research programme: The epigenetic basis of blood diseases
  Dr K Rasmussen
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  How can epigenetic changes be used to predict and prevent cancer?
  Dr A Chatterjee, Dr E Rodger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab, led by international leader in epigenetics Dr Aniruddha Chatterjee, combines cutting edge next-generation sequencing, computational analysis, and experimental work to decipher the role of epigenetic modifications and cellular phenotype in cancer.
  Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring.
  Dual Mechanism of Action Anticancer Agents (GANESANAU20SF)
  Prof A Ganesan, Dr S E Matthews
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The modulation of immune checkpoints and epigenetic regulation are two new strategies for cancer chemotherapy that have resulted in a number of recently approved drugs.
  Epigenetics in the microbial world
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

New technologies have opened a whole new world relative to non-genetic epigenetic mechanisms for gene regulation both in eukaryotes and prokaryotes.
  Defining the role of de novo DNA methylation in the regulation of female fertility
  Dr J Tello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovulation disorders are a leading cause of female infertility, present in ~25% of couples who have difficulty conceiving. A women’s fertility is dependent on effectively timing ovulation within a highly-regulated ovarian cycle.
