We are inviting applications of motivated candidates for a PhD studentship in the exciting global challenge of ‘Advanced plastic recycling’.
  (MCRC Clinical) Urinary HPV testing for cervical cancer screening
  Prof E Crosbie, Prof T Walsh
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cervical cancer is caused by chronic infection with human papillomavirus (HPV). Cervical screening tests for HPV in cells collected from the cervix using a soft brush.
  Simultaneous use of genetic and non-genetic information in the evaluation of screening and diagnostic testing pathways: Development of multiparameter evidence synthesis methodology (T3/9)
  Prof A Sutton
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019
