tumour microenvironment PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 27 tumour microenvironment PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies. We are interested in the regulatory pathways that control cell proliferation and cell migration and the events that disrupt this control in multiple types of cancer.

FULLY FUNDED - CRUK Scotland Centre - Understanding the role of the tumour microenvironment in promoting metastasis following radiotherapy

The CRUK Scotland Centre studentships. 'TO APPLY, PLEASE CLICK INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. Radiotherapy (RT) is an effective treatment used in a wide range of solid cancers for both curative intents, and in neo-adjuvant and palliative settings to gain local control and symptom relief. Read more

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

FULLY FUNDED - CRUK Scotland Centre - Unveiling the Circadian Code – Tools for deciphering the spatiotemporal dynamics of colorectal cancer metastasis.

The CRUK Scotland Centre studentships. 'TO APPLY, PLEASE CLICK INSTITUTION WEBSITE'. An exciting PhD position awaits individuals eager to delve into the spatiotemporal regulation of metastasis, the leading cause of cancer related deaths posing a significant hurdle in cancer treatment. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more
