  Precision healthcare - A novel diagnostic platform to detect liver cancer biomarkers in urine
  Dr A Salehi Reyhani, Prof S Taylor-Robinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Hepatocellular carcinoma, or liver cancer, is the 6th most common cause of cancer but the 2nd biggest cancer-killer globally. In this highly multidisciplinary project, you will help develop new methods for the detection of liver cancer at the point-of-care based on our pioneering work in miniaturised diagnostics.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
A universal characteristic of all cancer cells is the reprogramming of cell metabolism to provide the energy and building blocks necessary to support proliferation and survival.
  Multi-phase CFD modelling of biological tissue (with applications in liver surgery)
  Dr S Van Loo
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been used extensively in medicine to model the flow of blood in large arteries and veins and in the heart, but our understanding of the spatial propagation of body fluids on the microscopic level is more limited.
  Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine
 Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine. Research in. • The Cell Biology and Immunology of Cancer.
  Activity based proteomic probes for profiling CYP2W1 in cancer tissues
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr C Sutton, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round
Cytochromes P450 (CYPs) are a superfamily of mixed function oxidases of which CYP1-4 subfamily members are unique in their ability to oxidise drugs.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Rationally Designed Oncolytic Reovirus-Based Immunotherapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  Dr A Samson, Prof A Whitehouse, Dr C McKimmie
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the UK has increased more than four-fold since 1990, and worldwide HCC is the second biggest cause of cancer-specific mortality.
  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
