  Senescence and the SASP: implications in cancer and ageing
  Research Group: Cell Proliferation
  Dr J Gil
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Senescence is a cellular response to stresses such as oncogenic signalling, DNA damage and telomere loss, characterized by a stable growth arrest.
  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  Targeting senescence to ameliorate ageing and treat cancer and other diseases
  Dr S Macip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is a biological process that affects all living creatures. Despite the scientific advances of the past decades, the mechanisms that lead to ageing in humans are not fully understood.
  Exploring the role of OGG1 in fibroblast senescence
  Dr D Lambert, Prof T Helleday
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fibroblasts are the major cell type of connective tissue. They play a critical role in maintaining the extracellular matrix, the ‘glue’ in which most cells reside, and maintaining normal function of other types of cells such as epithelial and immune cells.
  MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences fully funded studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have multiple fully funded studentships available for our 3.5 year PhD programme commencing October 2020. The LMS is a Medical Research Council funded Institute based at the Hammersmith Hospital Campus of Imperial College London.
  Structural and biochemical studies of macromolecular complexes involved in telomere maintenance
  Dr K Nguyen
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linear eukaryotic chromosomes are capped with telomeres, which protect chromosomes against degradation and inter-chromosomal fusion and thus are essential for maintaining genome integrity.
  (MRC DTP) Understanding the regulation of an IL-1alpha inflammatory reaction
  Dr D Brough, Prof S Allan, Dr J Rivers-Auty
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inflammation is a response of the innate immune system that controls infection and promotes resistance and tissue repair.
  Understanding the impact of placental aging on placental function
  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prolonged pregnancy (>41 weeks gestation) is associated with an increase in perinatal mortality (the death of a baby before or shortly after birth) from a nadir of 1 per 1,000 births at 39 weeks’ to 3 per 1,000 births at 41 weeks which continues to rise beyond this time.
  Melanocyte proliferation and apoptosis in human skin: lessons from chronic plaque psoriasis
  Prof DJ Tobin
Application Deadline: 16 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is now available in the Charles Institute of Dermatology to investigate how epidermis remodeling in the common skin disorder Psoriasis may regulate melanocyte number.
