  How is the immune system alerted to DNA damage in skin cancer cells?
  Dr L Unterholzner, Dr L Jackson-Jones
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
The immune system helps protect us from cancer - a process called immunosurveillance. However, the interplay between the immune system and cancer cells is so far incompletely understood.
  Investigating the requirements of pro-inflammatory signaling in skin and head & neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round
Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are amongst the most common cancer types afflicting man. SCCs most frequently arise from stratified squamous epithelia such as the epidermis or the mucosae of the head and neck.
  Parallels between wound healing and cancer – role of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Prof A M Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Wound healing and cancer metastasis share common early signalling pathways that have led to the hypothesis that tumours are “wounds that do not heal”, a phrase first coined by Virchow in the 19th century.
  Sunlight exposure and cutaneous production of vitamin D in Black African/Afro-Caribbean adults
  Dr M Farrar, Prof L Rhodes, Prof A Webb
Applications accepted all year round
Our main source of vitamin D is through skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and is associated with reduced incidence of several cancers and immune-mediated disorders.
  Analysis of intracellular sCTLA-4 and its contribution to intrinsic cell regulation
  Dr F J Ward, Dr R Abu Eid
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Cancer immunotherapy is among the most important recent developments in cancer treatment. Despite its impressive successes, however, the response in some patients is often limited and short lived.
  The role of eosinophils in skin inflammation and carcinogenesis
  Dr J Strid
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
We invite applications for a British Skin Foundation-funded PhD studentship to investigate the role of eosinophils in skin inflammation and cancer development in the laboratory of Dr Jessica Strid ([email protected]).
  Naked mole rat skin as a model for ageing and cancer resistance
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof V Botchkarev, Dr A Mardaryev, Dr N Botchkareva
Applications accepted all year round
The dramatic increase in the size of the elderly population in the UK and other developed countries results in the increased risk of age-related pathologies, including cancer and chronic wounds, and, therefore, is associated with clinical and socio-economic burdens.
  The role of tumour microenvironment interactions in melanoma therapy resistance
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake, Dr M Sutherland
Applications accepted all year round
The incidence of malignant melanoma has steadily increased over the past 30 years, and it is predicted that 76,250 new cases will be diagnosed in the US and over 10,000 in the UK this year.
  How an IFNγ target gene mediates resistance to immunotherapy
  Dr A Hurlstone, Prof K Williams, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round
Metastatic melanoma, a highly aggressive form of skin cancer, can respond well to immunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors, but there are still a significant proportion of patients not benefitting or for whom benefits are not durable.
  Role of Desmoglein-3 in regulating the YAP-Hippo pathway in cancer
  Dr H Wan
Applications accepted all year round
Project Description. Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD within a multidisciplinary and integrative research team in The Centre of Immunobiology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute of Dentistry.
