  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.
  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.
  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.
  Integrated analysis of the Intra-tumour Heterogeneity of Oral squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr I Sequeira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a heterogeneous disease with unique genomic and phenotypic features that differ between individual patients and among different regions within the same tumour.
  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.
  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.
  Exploring the role of histone deacetylase inhibitors as regulators of innate immune cells activation in periodontitis
  Dr F Flores-Borja

Project Description. Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD within a multidisciplinary and integrative research team in The Centre of Immunobiology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute of Dentistry.
  The role of syndecan-4 as a regulator of the tumour microenvironment in pancreatic cancer
  Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project will assess the role of syndecan-4 in pancreatic cancer progression. Despite its relatively low prevalence, pancreatic cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related mortality and will claim approx.
  Deciphering the role of the tumour suppressor Hippo pro-apoptotic network in cancer
  Dr D Gomez
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At SBI we believe that studying the dynamic control of cell-signalling is key for understanding many diseases, including cancer.
  Mathematical modelling of cancer signalling for precision medicine
  Dr D Fey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells process intra- and extracellular signals to make vital cell-fate decisions. In diseases such as cancer, these decisions go awry due to the dysregulation of the intracellular communication networks.
  PhD in Bioconjugation Chemistry
  Dr B Albada
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD candidate who will develop state-of-the-art targeted anti-cancer therapeutics and wants to obtain transferable and future career-enhancing skills.
