  The oral microbiome, ROS and the development of oral cancer: a role in Fanconi anemia?
  Prof K Hunter, Dr S Collis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA) develop cancers of the mouth, esophagus or anogential region. A number of reasons have been suggested, but the millions of bacteria that are naturally resident in these body sites might be a significant contributory factor.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  (MRC DTP) The oral microbiome, microbial metabolites and their impact upon local and systemic immunity
  Dr A McBain, Dr J Konkel
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal microbes and the host immune system have formed an evolutionary partnership that is vital for the development, metabolism and defensive immunity of the host.
  Modelling the epigenome in oral dysplasia and early invasive carcinoma
  Prof K Hunter, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The key molecular events which lead to the development of premalignant oral lesions and their progression to oral cancer are still poorly understood.
  Investigating the role of connexins in the gingival response to the oral microbiota
  Dr J Butcher, Dr C Wright, Dr P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19005. Periodontal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory and bone destructive disease that imposes a substantial social and economic burden, and has been linked to the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Understanding factors that influence behaviour change talk in routine dental care to prevent oral health problems in young children
  Dr S Peters, Dr J Goldthorpe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dental decay is a preventable disease that impacts significantly on children’s development and wellbeing. Tooth extraction due to decayed teeth is the number one reason for hospital admission in young children and in Greater Manchester, a 1/3 of children have dental decay by the time they start school.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Oral vitamin D spray as a novel treatment for 22q11 deletion syndrome
  Dr A McNeill, Dr C Mazzà
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

22q11 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic disorder, affecting about 1/2500 people (as common as cystic fibrosis). It is due to a small missing piece of chromosome 22 on the long arm (q) at position 11.
  Does fatty acid uptake by oral cancer cells drive metastasis?
  Dr C Murdoch, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cell surface receptor CD36 belongs to a large scavenger receptor family that primarily bind lipid-containing molecules. Until recently their expression was thought to be restricted to macrophages and endothelial cells but recent data suggest that epithelial cancer cells may also express this receptor.
