  Proteomics to determine how defects in membrane trafficking within the secretory pathway cause human disease
  Prof M Lowe, Prof V Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Work in the Lowe laboratory is aimed at deciphering the molecular mechanisms that control membrane trafficking within cells. A major focus of our work is the trafficking of proteins to and through the Golgi apparatus, which lies at the heart of the secretory pathway.
  Managing Ethical Supply Chain Risks Using Traditional Collaborative Approaches
  Dr N Palit, Dr K Fryer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. GSBS-2019-120. The nature of the risks present in the supply chain is ever changing. One of the modern day concerns of the supply chains is to manage the ethical risks including sensitive issues such as child labour exploitation, modern-day slavery, and human trafficking.
  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  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.
  Understanding mechanisms of Notch regulation and misregulation in endocytic pathway
  Dr M Baron, Dr R Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Notch is a developmental signalling receptor with widespread and important roles in metazoan development and also in adult stem cell regulation.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Preparing the acid bath: how epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) controls its own down-regulation
  Prof P Woodman, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling by cell surface receptors determines nearly every aspect of the cell’s response to its environment. Endosomes are hubs for regulating these signalling pathways.
  Vulnerabilities’ and ‘Capabilities’ within the Context of Protracted Displacement Crises
  Dr K Sharapov, Dr T Guma
Application Deadline: 9 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst the ’vulnerabilities’ of individuals forced to cross borders and of internally displaced persons have been often highlighted and documented over several decades, less is known about the ’capabilities’ of displaced people themselves to respond to contexts of exile/displacement.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  Regulation of synaptic protein function by protein palmitoylation
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  The functions of the Class II Pi3-kinase signals in vivo
  Dr L MacDougall, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphoinositide lipids (PIPs) play critical roles in development and the homeostasis of adult tissues and their dysfunction has been linked to major human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, myopathies and neuropathies.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  New Dimensions in Cannabinoid Receptor 2 Therapeutic Development: Exploring Spatial and Temporal Signalling Bias
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
