  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.
  Understanding dynamic immune responses within a fluidic 3D skin equivalent model
  Dr J Connelly
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The skin is a complex, multicellular tissue comprised of epithelial cells, fibroblasts, blood vessels, nerves, and dendritic cells.
  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.
  Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine
 Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine. Research in. • The Cell Biology and Immunology of Cancer.
  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.
  TGFβ superfamily signalling networks driving pancreatic cancer progression
  Prof G Inman, Dr P Bailey, Dr J Morton
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world-leading centres for cancer research. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics and in vivo models of cancer.
