  A 3Rs approach to tumour metastasis: investigating the role of cancer stem cells in metastasis using an in vitro microfluidic model
  Dr A Biddle, Dr J Gautrot
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Applications are invited for a three year PhD studentship at QMUL, fully funded by the NC3Rs, to support an ambitious student with a strong interest in using cross-disciplinary ‘organ-on-a-chip’ approaches to improve the experimental modelling of human cancer.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  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.
  Functional significance of IL-1B in breast cancer bone metastases
  Dr P Ottewell
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and leading cause of death in women worldwide. Up to 75% of patients with advanced breast cancer develop bone metastases and patients with this condition have a median survival of around 2-3 years.
  Stochastic Differential Equations for Systems with Extreme Events
  Dr S Johnson, Dr F Spill
Application Deadline: 22 January 2019
A great many real-world phenomena which involve some degree of randomness can be described with stochastic differential equations (SDEs).
  Mathematical Modelling of Cancer-Cell Transmigration Through Blood Vessels
  Dr F Spill
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Cancer rarely kills through the primary tumour in which cancer arises, e.g. the prostate in prostate cancer. Instead, cancer cells may travel through the vasculature and colonialize distant organs – a process termed metastasis.
  The role of tumour microenvironment interactions in melanoma therapy resistance
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake, Dr M Sutherland
Applications accepted all year round
The incidence of malignant melanoma has steadily increased over the past 30 years, and it is predicted that 76,250 new cases will be diagnosed in the US and over 10,000 in the UK this year.
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  DNA Strategic Epigenetic Biomarkers in Melanoma
  Dr C Proby, Prof C N A Palmer
Applications accepted all year round
Hypothesis. That tumour-specific DNA methylation present in free circulating DNA from melanoma patients will enable early detection of disease relapse or metastasis facilitating life-preserving benefit from additional therapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors.
