  (MCRC Non-Clinical) The feasibility, benefits and risks of heart sparing strategies in lung cancer radiotherapy
  Dr G Price, Dr A McWilliam, Dr A Salem
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. Patients are often frail with multiple co-morbidities, making them unsuitable for surgery.
  Targeting ERK5 to enhance the DNA damage response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
  Dr K Finegan, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ERK5 is a signalling protein that enables cells to transduce extracellular signals into responses. It is expressed in all tissues and is up-regulated in tumours.
  (MCRC Clinical - Leeds-Manchester) Multi-parametric MRI as a biomarker in CNS radiotherapy trials
  Prof S Short, Dr Stuart Currie, Dr L Murray, Dr M Merchant
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will apply advanced MR imaging techniques to the problem of risk estimation in patients undergoing complex CNS radiotherapy interventions.
  (MCRC Clinical) Developing circulating and imaging biomarkers towards personalised radiotherapy in lung cancer
  Prof C Faivre-Finn, Dr G Price, Prof C Dive
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Approximately a third of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer cases are locally-advanced (LA-NSCLC) at presentation (~13,000 pts a year in the UK) with the majority being unsuitable for curative surgery.
  (MRC DTP) Determining potential targets to enhance radiotherapy treatment of cancer by activating the immune system
  Dr M Travis, Prof K Williams, Prof T Illidge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK, and despite recent advances in therapy, much more still needs to be done to identify new treatments, and to make existing treatments more effective.
  Advanced functional MRI for the characterisation of paediatric glioma and its response to therapy
  Dr S Robinson, Dr C Jones
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. We are committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission—to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
  Decreasing the side effects from breast cancer treatment
  Dr M Aznar, Prof M Van Herk, Prof C West
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy is an important part of a successful treatment for many women with breast cancer, but it can lead to side effects. Women often complain about skin burns, a stiff shoulder or a swollen arm.
  Combined functional MRI and super-resolution ultrasound for non-invasive monitoring of tumour blood delivery during breast cancer radiotherapy.
  Prof M Tang, Dr N Somaiah, Dr M Blackledge
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combined super-resolution ultrasound and functional MRI for non-invasive monitoring of tumour blood delivery during breast cancer radiotherapy.
  Adaptation of 3 GHz cavity design of linear accelerators for proton radiotherapy
  Dr R Apsimon, Dr H Owen, Dr G Burt
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A studentship is available from October 2020 on the development of high-gradient radiofrequency linear accelerators proton therapy.
  (MCRC Non-Clinical) Optimising proton radiotherapy for head and neck cancer patients
  Dr A McWilliam, Prof David Thompson, Dr M Lowe
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Treatment of oropharyngeal cancer with chemo-radiotherapy results in a high incident of acute toxicities. This is particularly important for the increasing proportion of patients who are HPV positive as these are younger patients with a greater chance of survival.
  (MRC DTP) Development of a risk model towards personalised screening for radiation-induced breast cancer using the national Breast Screening After Radiotherapy Dataset (BARD)
  Dr M Aznar, Dr S Howell, Dr S Astley, Prof J Radford
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy uses radiation (x-rays, protons) to kill cancer cells, and is an important part of cancer treatment for many patients.
  Understanding the genetic basis of radiotherapy toxicity (T1/4)
  Dr C J Talbot
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy is effective at killing tumours but can cause side effects that impair quality of life. Efforts are underway to develop predictive algorithms for radiotherapy toxicity, which would then allow alterations to treatment.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Determining clinically significant early stage lung cancers from image analysis
  Dr W.H. Nailon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisors. Dr Iain Philipps, Dr Duncan Mclaren & Dr Stephen Harrow. Background. Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) is an image guided radiotherapy technique, used to deliver a curative treatment for early stage lung cancer.
  (MRC DTP) Advanced image analysis to track daily biological changes in prostate radiotherapy
  Dr A McWilliam, Dr M Aznar, Prof A Choudhury, Prof C West
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men, with 47,000 new cases diagnosed each year in the UK. Currently it is accepted that we over-treat men with less aggressive disease and under-treat men with more aggressive disease.
  Non-invasive imaging of the tumour microenvironment during radiotherapy response.
  Dr SE Bohndiek
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Optoacoustic imaging is an emerging clinical technology that combines the high contrast of optical imaging with the spatial resolution of ultrasound imaging.
