  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Determining how immune responses are regulated at mucosal surfaces
  Prof M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  EASTBIO: The chicken or the egg; surmounting neonatal immune dysfunction for successful in ovo vaccination
  Prof L Vervelde, Prof J Hope
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. In ovo vaccination is an alternative approach to post-hatch vaccination of chickens.
  Testing the function of immune suppressive cytokines and cells in bone metastasis
  Assoc Prof B Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone metastasis is a common occurrence in breast and prostate cancer that leads to patient morbidity and, in many cases, mortality.
  Neutrophils and Chemokine Signalling in the Tumour Immune Micro-environment and Progression
  Dr T Iwata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapy is promising, however still requires an improvement in response and development of markers to predict the patients who would benefit from this therapy.
  Proteolytic network regulating the human innate immune response
  Dr D Boucher, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune system is our first line of defence against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Upon infection, immune cells, such as macrophages and neutrophils, will assemble signalling platforms termed inflammasome, to restrict and clear the insult.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Reprogramming the innate immune system to fight ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 24 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
  Development of the hematopoietic/ immune system in the embryo
  Prof M DeBruijn
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our aim is to obtain a mechanistic insight into the birth of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells in embryonic development and determine the contribution of these cells to the emerging hematopoietic and immune systems of the embryo.

  Investigation of a completely uncharacterised, embryonically lethal gene in immune cell development
  Dr J James, Prof K Sampath
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of vertebrate animals from a single fertilised cell to the fully formed adult is an astonishingly well-choreographed sequence of events, which is made more remarkable by being so faithfully recapitulated on each attempt.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
