  Moonlight activities for cyclin genes in plants (MOUBAYIDINJ18RS)
  Dr L Moubayidin
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of cell division in plant development is crucial to achieve coherent organ patterning, and bilateral and radial symmetry.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Targeting addiction to a breast cancer metastasis survival pathway by inhibition of RAN GTPase
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr S Betmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic cancer is a major global health burden. Each year, eleven million new cases of cancer are diagnosed worldwide, including 5 million cases in industrialized countries.
  How to prevent promiscuous gene regulation
  Prof M C Gambetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulatory elements that turn genes ON or OFF are promiscuous and can act over large genomic distances. How are genes protected from unwanted regulation?.
  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  Understanding the interplay of mutations and selection during cancer evolution
  Prof D Weghorn
Application Deadline: 23 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a genetic disease, subject to population genetics forces like mutation, selection and stochasticity.
