  Molecular modelling of novel anti-cancer molecules targeting Mortalin-p53 interaction
  Dr S R Dundas, Prof A Donaldson, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mortalin is a highly conserved member of the heat shock 70 family which, when over-expressed, plays a pivotal role in dysregulating signal pathways implicated in carcinogenesis.
  New approaches to treating metastatic bone disease in breast and prostate cancer
  Dr A Riemen, Prof V Speirs, Prof A Johnstone
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is a common metastatic site for breast and prostate cancers. Once metastasised to bones, one-year survival for prostate cancer is 29% (4) compared with 59% for breast cancer.
  Non-invasive Mapping of Oxygen Extraction Fraction in Patients with Breast Cancer: Development of Novel Multi-Parametric Relaxometry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Methods
  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  Reprogramming the innate immune system to treat malignancy: targeting ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof I Stansfield, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the major advances achieved in recent years by redirecting the adaptive immune system to recognise cancer cells (notably monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors and chimaeric antigen receptor T cells), the therapeutic potential of innate immunity remains underexploited.
  Resistance isn’t futile: Dissecting adaptation and antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic fungi
  Dr D Childers, Prof C Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What will you investigate?. We have only four major classes of antifungals to treat life-threatening fungal infections, which even with treatment will claim over 1 million lives this year.
  Telomere integrity: How do Replication Factor C-like complexes maintain telomere length?
  Dr T Kubota, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres, the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, play an essential role in protecting linear DNA from degradation. Derailed telomere regulation causes genome instability and has been implicated in increased rates of cellular senescence and many diseases, including cancer.
  The effect of anaesthetic neurotoxicity on the development of adult neural stem cells
  Dr D Berg, Dr E Kang
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although most neurons in the mammalian brain are generated during development, certain areas possess the capacity to generate new neurons throughout life.
  The mechanism of DNA organisation mediated by cohesion and condensin
  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
  The potential of elevating Epac2 to modulate glial activation and promote motor neuron regeneration in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  Dr W Huang, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease characterised by the selective degeneration and death of motor neurons.
  What determines tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy?
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
  What is the role of opioids in postoperative pain?
  Prof P Forget, Prof G Macfarlane
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The question seems trivial but remains largely unresolved. The present project aims to address the question using different approaches.
  Cross-cultural differences in nonverbal behaviours during face-to-face communication
  Dr M Chu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Effective cross-cultural interaction requires not only understanding spoken language but also the ability to decode nonverbal cues in face-to-face communication.
  Establishing whether children form stereotypes via statistical learning
  Dr D Martin, Dr J Hutchison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will establish how children’s social stereotypes form as they repeatedly encounter social information across different situations.
  Sentence planning in bilingual speakers: Incrementality and adaptation in native and non-native language production.
  Dr A Konopka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do speakers put thoughts into words? Native speakers normally plan what they are going to say incrementally.
