  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.
  Patient-reported healing outcomes for venous leg ulcers
  Prof N Cullum, Dr J Dumville
Applications accepted all year round
Venous leg ulcers are a common, chronic and debilitating condition. For patients these open wounds, caused by venous hypertension, are painful, at risk of infection and limit health-related quality of life.
  Effect of microstructure in the mechanical response of cost-effective biomimetic constructs for rapid wound healing
  Dr A Tsamis, Prof J Pan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
A chronic wound is a wound that has failed to proceed through an orderly and timely process to produce anatomic and functional integrity or a wound that has proceeded through the repair process without establishing a sustained anatomic and functional result.
  Investigation of the role of molecular regulators during skin development and wound healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round
Skin morphogenesis occurs under stringent control of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and result in a formation of the epidermis and a number of different skin appendages (including, the hair follicle, HF).
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Use of engineered protein polymers in wound repair
  Prof N Reynolds, Prof J Lakey, Dr P Gulati
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Cutaneous wound healing is a major socioeconomic and clinical problem resulting in a significant burden, with an estimated £2.3-3.1 billion per year being spent on wound care in the UK, 3% of the NHS total expenditure.
  (A*STAR) Elucidating the role of polyamines in the epidermal skin barrier
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr K Mace, Dr A Saunders
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Delayed wound healing is a major health issue affecting one in 50 people. The process of wound healing is a highly orchestrated process involving many cell types and regulatory networks.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Role of primary cilium in morphogen signalling modulation by Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-beta) and its involvement in tissue fibrosis and aberrant wound healing
  Dr F Del Galdo, Dr N.A. Riobo-Del Galdo
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We offer an exciting opportunity to investigate the molecular basis underlying tissue fibrosis, at the epigenetic, molecular and cellular level.
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  The effect of polysialyltransferase modulation on tumour cell migration
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Dr R Falconer
Applications accepted all year round
One of the main reasons for failure of cancer therapy today is an inability to control tumour dissemination, with secondary tumour deposits the cause of morbidity.
