  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Investigating the importance of lipid metabolism in liver cancer
  Research Group: Cellular Stress
  Prof D Carling
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity and its associated complications are an increasing global problem and are responsible for a huge burden of morbidity and mortality.
  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.
  Exploiting stemness as a cancer cell vulnerability using hepatocellular carcinoma as a model system
  Dr S Ma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumors are composed of non-homogeneous cell populations exhibiting varying degrees of genetic and functional heterogeneity. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are capable of sustaining tumors by manipulating genetic and non-genetic factors to metastasize, resist treatment, and maintain the tumor microenvironment.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.
  Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) as a novel cancer biomarker and target for chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Coussons, Dr C Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Targeting metabolic vulnerabilities of MYC-driven tumours
  Dr M Yuneva
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Mariia Yuneva’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Altered metabolism is one of the hallmarks of tumorigenesis (1).
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Bioinformatics for Personalized and Precision Neoantigen Therapeutics in Cancer
  Prof T Hupp, Dr JA Alfaro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the success of immune checkpoint inhibitors in the clinic, most cancer patients do not respond, and even among responders therapeutic resistance is a problem.
