  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Development of targeted therapy for acute myeloid leukaemia with mutations in isocitrate dehysdrogenase
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is an aggressive disease with poor prognosis and development of novel treatment options is urgently needed.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease
  Dr J Lamb, Dr H Chinoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement.
  Understanding disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr X Shu, Dr G Hunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19028. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a growing global health concern in the world.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Investigating the requirements of pro-inflammatory signaling in skin and head & neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are amongst the most common cancer types afflicting man. SCCs most frequently arise from stratified squamous epithelia such as the epidermis or the mucosae of the head and neck.
  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.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
