We have 23 radiotherapy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

FLASH VHEE Radiotherapy Machine System Design

A studentship is available from October 2024 on the development of a unique machine to deliver FLASH radiotherapy. To achieve this goal we anticipate strong collaboration with STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory and CERN. Read more

(EPSRC) Generation of an AI predictive model capable of identifying prostate and bladder cancer patients that will benefit from radiotherapy.

Prostate and bladder cancer are both malignancies of the urological system affecting 1.8 million people. However, 50% of prostate and 25% of bladder cancer patients are respectively diagnosed as high risk aggressive diseases, both requiring either radical surgery (RS) or radiotherapy (RT)1,2. Read more

Designing and evaluating novel nanotherapeutics to enhance the effectiveness of radiotherapy in the treatment of solid cancers.

One in two cancer patients will receive radiotherapy as part of their treatment. For patients with a localised cancer diagnosis effective radiotherapy represents the best chance of a curative outcome, however, is not without risk. Read more

PhD in Learned Iterative Image Reconstruction for Tomographic Imaging with the Radiotherapy Treatment Radiation

​Radiation therapy is used for more than half of all cancer patients. New frontiers in radiation therapy are reached by integrating together imaging and radiation-therapy systems, for imaging the patient immediately prior or during treatment. Read more

Identifying DNA methylation signatures of prostate cancer progression and mortality among patients with clinically confirmed, localised disease at baseline in a large prospective clinical trial

Rationale. Prostate Cancer (PCa) is a leading cause of male mortality, with 336,000 deaths worldwide each year (1). Although most PCa cases are indolent, slow-growing, and tend not to progress, a subset of PCa cases are more aggressive and will progress to metastases, treatment resistance and death. Read more

Optical fiber-based RF-breakdown detection and prediction

The QUASAR Group, based at the Cockcroft Institute, in collaboration with the beam instrumentation company D-Beam Ltd, have pioneered the development and commercialization of optical fiber-based beam loss monitors for particle accelerators. Read more

Investigating local invasion in primary and secondary brain tumours

Brain tumours are highly invasive and carry a poor prognosis. Secondary brain tumours or brain metastases (BM) are the most common tumours found in the brain affecting up to one third of patients with solid organ cancer. Read more

Preclinical testing of collagen synthesis inhibitors for fibrotic disease

Fibrotic disease is characterised by an excessive accumulation of collagen within tissues, which then impedes tissue function. Organ fibrosis specifically kidney fibrosis, liver fibrosis, cardiac fibrosis and lung fibrosis have limited treatment options, pose a huge clinical burden and are life-limiting diseases. Read more
