  Isthmin-1 in mammary gland branching morphogenesis and breast cancer tumorigenesis
  Prof Z Zhou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isthmin-1 is a newly identified extracellular matrix protein which has been shown to be widely expressed and is critical for Nodal signaling (Osorio et al.
  LaNts and laminins in breast cancer
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laminins are a family of proteins that make up part of specialised regions of extracellular matrix termed basement membranes.
  Taking control of cancer-associated splicing switches
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In cancer, numerous changes to protein expression occur. Some of these are the result of changes to gene transcription or mRNA degradation rates, however, it has increasingly apparent that changes to alternative splicing profile are a key driver of cancer progression.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  Analysis of the role of Hypoxia Inducibe Factor pathway in radioprotection
  Dr F Van Eeden
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) is highly important in human health and disease, as is testified by the 2019 Nobel prize for Medicine or Physiology.
  Optogenetic programming of inflammation - in vivo Opto-GPCR approaches in neutrophils.
  Prof S Renshaw, Prof A Condliffe
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

White blood cells called neutrophils have a powerful protective role and without them we develop overwhelming infection, yet they are also directly responsible for the tissue damage that characterises many common inflammatory diseases.
  GLUT4 distribution in the plasma membrane: from single molecules to whole muscles.
  Prof G Gould, Dr S Currie
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. (Max 2000 characters including spaces). Insulin promotes glucose transport by moving GLUT4 from insulin-sensitive intracellular stores to the plasma membrane (PM).
  Mapping neuromodulator networks in real-time in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans
  Dr Y L Chew
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DEADLINE EXTENDED!. Background and Aims. Much of the efforts to identify neuronal connections and map the ‘connectome’ of the nervous system focuses on synaptic connections between neurons.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
