  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: The underlying mechanism by which hypoxia regulates platelet hyperactivity
  Dr I Hers
Applications accepted all year round
Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Elucidation of the role of newly discovered post-translational modification of proteins involved in hypoxia signalling using proteomic analysis and live cell imaging
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round
The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Role of hypoxia in promotion of higher grade glioblastoma
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr V Vinader, Dr K Afarinkia
Applications accepted all year round
Glioblastomas are categorized into four grades. Grade I is essentially benign and slow growing, and most amenable to treatment. Grade II tumors are larger and invade surrounding tissue.
  Regulation of the In Vivo Response to Cardiac Hypoxia – The Role of FIH1
  Dr M Cole
Applications accepted all year round
Hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) are transcription factors present in all mammalian cells, and play a pivotal role in the molecular response to changes in oxygen availability.
  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round
A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  Parallels between wound healing and cancer – role of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Prof A M Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Wound healing and cancer metastasis share common early signalling pathways that have led to the hypothesis that tumours are “wounds that do not heal”, a phrase first coined by Virchow in the 19th century.
  AMPK deficiency and respiratory disease
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round
Regulation of breathing is critical to our capacity to accommodate deficits in oxygen availability and demand during, for example, sleep and ascent to altitude.
  Stopping brain tumours in their tracks – the role of RhoGTPase activating proteins (ARHGAPs) in glioma cell migration and invasion
  Dr A Brüning-Richardson
Application Deadline: 25 April 2019
Six new fully funded PhD research studentships are offered in the School of Applied Sciences for a 23 September 2019 start. The School is made up of the Departments of Biological and Geographical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
  Modulation of the pulmonary vasculature in health and disease
  Dr D Schwenke
Applications accepted all year round
The pulmonary microcirculation is tightly modulated by the autonomic nervous system, the pulmonary vessel endothelium and the vascular smooth muscle.
  Developing Bone Secondary Microenvironments for Personalised Medicine
  Prof KE Tanner
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This project is part of the A*STAR Research Attachment Programme, through which students spend the middle 2 years conducting research at one of the A*STAR Research Institutes in Singapore, under the supervision of an A*STAR supervisor.
