  Bioinformatics based project - Determining the link between gut microbiome and blood pressure
  Dr F Marques
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available for an Australian or international student through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  Common severe childhood infections, innate inflammatory responses and cardiometabolic risk: The VASCular changes aFter INfectious Diseases (VASCFIND) study
  Prof D Burgner, Dr S Bekkering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY. Infection, the commonest reason for childhood hospital admission, is a major driver of inflammation and is associated with cardiometabolic risk and disease.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Genomic determinants of long-term survival in ovarian cancer
  Research Group: Cancer Genetics & Genomics Laboratory
  Prof D. Bowtell, Dr D Garsed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease in which only ~30% of women survive 5 years or more. Despite a poor prognosis, a subset of patients are highly responsive to chemotherapy, and some become long-term survivors (>10 years survival).
  A multiple modality approach for targeting treatment-resistant ovarian cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70% of ovarian cancer (OvCa) deaths and its five-year survival rate is 43%.
  Analytic methods for detecting and making sense of somatic genomic rearrangements
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  Computational simulation of tumour formation and progression
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours comprise a complex mix of related but distinct cellular subpopulations that both compete and complement one another. These dynamics strongly influence how and when a tumour forms as well as its response to therapy, however there are hard to observe directly.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
