  New strategies in integrin antagonism
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis.
  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.
  Unraveling the signal regulation network of cell adhesion, migration, and invasion in podosomes and invadopodia
  Dr C Yu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrin-mediated adhesions, such as podosomes and invadopodia, are the biophysical anchor to sense and to translate mechanobiological signals into various cellular events.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding 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.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Prof P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
