  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.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  Application of protein-drug conjugates for the treatment of cancer (part of the ETN Targeted Anti-Cancer Therapies “TACT”)
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Prof C Scott, Dr K McCloskey
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macromolecular drug substances such as antibodies, ADCs and nanomedicine are often compromised in their therapeutic effectiveness due to inability to penetrate sufficiently into the diseased tissue and be taken up by the diseased cells.
  Targeting mitochondrial dynamics to prevent Parkinson’s disease
  Prof A Sivaprasadarao, Dr R.S. Bon
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A common feature of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the presence of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in the brains of affected patients.

  Prof R Thakker, Dr K Lines, Dr M Stevenson, Dr K Kooblall
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Other Potential Supervisors. Dr Asha Bayliss. The Academic Endocrine Unit investigates the molecular basis of endocrine and metabolic disorders that principally affect calcium and phosphate homeostasis.
