  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Systematic cell reprogramming –transdifferentiation– cell fate and evolution using computational approaches.
  Dr J Gough
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of regenerative medicine was stunned in 2007 by the possibility of creating stem cells from adult human cells (1). Since then it has been shown that it is also possible to trans-differentiate from one mature human cell type to another.
  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.
  mRNA translation reprogramming and metabolic re-wiring in response to ribosome-targeted therapies
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr J Kang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increased synthesis and activity of ribosomes are associated with oncogenesis downstream of the major oncogenes including MYC, RAS and PI3K.
  Overcoming therapy induced reprogramming of metabolism in melanoma
  Dr K. Sheppard, Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Therapies that target oncogenes in cancer have revolutionised cancer care. The major benefits of targeted therapies are high response rates and manageable toxicities, however they do not result in cures in the vast majority of patients.
  FOXA1 mutations in Lobular Breast Cancer: Reprogramming Responses to Tamoxifen
  Prof D Heery, Dr S Johnston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours of the breast are often hormone-dependent, meaning their growth is driven by steroid hormones such as estrogen. This hormone acts upon the estrogen receptor (ER), which together with other transcription factors such as FOXA1 drives tumour growth.
  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Dissecting the ageing transcription factor network to set a rational basis for age-intervention strategies
  Dr C Nefzger
Application Deadline: 29 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

On a cellular level, ageing appears to be a largely epigenetic phenomenon that can be manipulated by pluripotency induction. Transdifferentiation and iPS technologies are forms of transcription factor (TF)-mediated cell reprogramming.
