  Fibroblast Heterogeneity in Pancreatic Cancer
  Dr G Biffi
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In pancreatic cancer, cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) have been shown to promote tumour growth, chemotherapy resistance and immunosuppression by secreting ligands and extracellular matrix proteins.
  Gut microbiota, wholegrain and pancreatic islet function in the development of type 2 diabetes
  Dr A Costabile, Dr A Hauge-Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project area. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has predicted that 629 million people will have diabetes by 2045, which will be over double the figure for 2000.
  Delay to diagnosis and treatment in pancreatic cancer with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals
  Prof A Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year full time self-funded PhD Studentship (part time would be considered). Patients with pancreatic cancer are commonly diagnosed with advanced disease.
  Identifying genomic and epigenetic factors in different subtypes of pancreatic cancer
  Prof J Carroll
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite recent advances in the treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the median survival remains. Epigenetic pathway alterations are an emerging mechanism for PDA progression.
  Investigating the pathogenesis of pancreatic beta cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Normal glucose levels is tightly controlled by the actions and secretion of insulin. After a meal, pancreatic β-cells secrete insulin, which not only promotes glucose uptake in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues but also inhibits glucose production in the liver.
  Identification of novel regulators of pancreatic beta-cell identity
  Dr I Akerman
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is the largest epidemic in human history that affects 1 in 12 adults worldwide. Due to our modern lifestyle, it is one of the few diseases where the incidence is set to rise dramatically, with projections putting 650 million people at risk by 2040.
  Inhibition of PRMT5 as a cancer therapy
  Dr K. Sheppard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Targeted therapy has had profound impact on outcomes for cancer patients.
  Multimerisation of ELAV/Hu proteins – a key mechanism ensuring specificity for RNA recognition in health and disease
  Dr M Soller, Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aims. Determine the structure of the ELAV dodecameric complex bound to target RNA by cryoEM and functionally probe interaction interfaces in vitro and in vivo in transgenic Drosophila models for neurodegeneration and cancer.
  Neutrophils and Chemokine Signalling in the Tumour Immune Micro-environment and Progression
  Dr T Iwata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapy is promising, however still requires an improvement in response and development of markers to predict the patients who would benefit from this therapy.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
