Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more

Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem. Read more

Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases. Read more

Opportunities for research studying Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Sheffield, Department of Oncology and Metabolism

The Department of Oncology and Metabolism, based in the Medical School, is a multidisciplinary department that has 4 main themes. The Diabetes and Endocrinology research theme has strengths in adrenal disease, diabetes, neuroendocrine tumours and drug development. Read more

Phenotypic characterisation of red and white blood cells from patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is escalating at an alarming rate, with almost 10% of the UK population suffering from T2DM or in a pre-diabetic state. Read more

Towards development of light-activated biotherapeutics (SACHEVAA_U21SCIPVC)

Over the last decade, several antibody-based biotherapeutics have been developed for treatment of cancer. These antibodies, often marketed as “targeted therapeutics”, bind to cell surface receptors on cancer cells and direct them towards apoptosis (programmed cell death). Read more

Genetic engineering of the human mitochondrial genome (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").

Mitochondria are intracellular organelles that are essential for life and human health. Mutations of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are a major cause of inherited disease affecting ~1/8000 humans, either due to single base substitutions or deletions. Read more
