  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Nanoinjection: a novel single molecule technique to study alpha-synuclein amyloid toxicity inside neurons
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Aims. The aim of this project is to use nanoinjection to perform the quantitative delivery of alpha-synuclein fibrils or oligomers into the cytoplasm of neurons and then determine how many of each is required to induce cellular stress and death.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  Molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in the invertebrate chordate amphioxus
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Proteolytic network regulating the human innate immune response
  Dr D Boucher, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune system is our first line of defence against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Upon infection, immune cells, such as macrophages and neutrophils, will assemble signalling platforms termed inflammasome, to restrict and clear the insult.
