  The role of USP11 in ER+ Breast Cancer
  Prof D O'Connor, Prof T Robson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

De-regulated estrogen receptor (ER) function is a key feature of approximately 70% of breast cancers. Given that the tumourigenic properties of ER primarily lie in its function as a growth-controlling transcription factor, we sought to discover novel modulators of ER transcriptional activity.
  Design and Synthesis of Bifunctional 3-D Building Blocks for Use in Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Professor Mike Waring (Newcastle University). Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.1 Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
