  Molecular analysis of TERT gene promoter mutations in tongue cancer
  Dr A Kang, Prof E K Parkinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Activation of telomerase is a hallmark of cancer and is aided in some tumours by activating mutations in the promoter of the telomerase reverse transcriptase gene, TERT.
  Characterising mechanisms that control Marek's Disease Virus genome release from telomeres during reactivation from latency
  Dr N J Royle, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Infection by Marek’s Disease Virus (MDV) is followed by latency, T-cell lymphomas and reactivation. It has significant deleterious effects on chicken health and welfare, with an annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the global poultry meat and egg production industries.
  Targeting telomere maintenance pathways in cancer
  Dr D Clynes, Dr A Blackford
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cancer occurs through the uncontrolled division of cells. The number of times a cell can divide is limited by the length of specialised DNA sequences found at the end of chromosomes called telomeres.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
  Understanding and targetting telomere maintenance in cancer
  Dr D Clynes, Dr A Blackford, Dr R Gibbons
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cancer occurs through the uncontrolled growth and division of cells, which eventually leads to the development of a tumour. The number of times a cell can divide is limited by the length of specialised DNA sequences found at the end of chromosomes.
  Telomere dynamics, stress and aging in an extremophile fish.
  Dr K Dasmahapatra, Dr M E Pownall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Stress may affect the health and lifespan of individuals by shortening telomeres,. which in turn induces chromosomal instability.
