  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Activation of Aurora Kinase A by DNA damage – understanding the signalling pathway to improve radiotherapy response
  Dr H Bryant, Prof C Eyers, Prof P Eyers
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation is a mainstay of cancer therapy, however radioresistance is a significant challenge in the treatment of locally advanced, recurrent and metastatic cancers.
  Understanding and minimizing radiation damage in breast tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Miss C Kirwan, Prof S Cartmell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human beings are subjected to many forms of radiation both natural (principally ultraviolet radiation [UVR]) and artificial (diagnostic and therapeutic X-rays).
  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developing protein tools to target DNA damage response and repair in cancer cells
  Dr Q. Wu, Dr D Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage response (DDR) and repair play critical roles in influencing the efficiency and sensitivity of many cancer treatments.
  Bioinspired worm-like nanoparticles for the delivery of anti-cancer stem cell agents
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer relapse and metastasis, the leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, is strongly linked to the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a small sub-population of cancer cells defined by their ability to self-renew, differentiate, and form secondary tumours.
  Characterisation of DNA-protein crosslink proteolysis repair in cancer and therapy
  Prof K Ramadan, Prof B Kessler
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs) are under-investigated DNA lesions caused by the covalent attachment of proteins to DNA.
