  Quantitative Allele-Specific Proteomics in Drug Metabolism and Disposition
  Dr J Barber, Dr B Achour, Prof A Rostami
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effective dose of a drug is subject to considerable inter-individual variation because the enzymes that metabolise drugs and the proteins that transport them in and out of cells exist, in many cases, in different polymorphic forms and are expressed in varying concentration.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Deciphering algal metabolism of key marine chemicals involved in the sulfur biogeochemical cycle
  Dr T Tonon, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine ecosystems play major role in the biogeochemical cycling of several chemical elements, including sulfur. This is due to the metabolism of two key compounds, dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and dimethyl sulfide (DMS).
  Targeting metabolic vulnerabilities of MYC-driven tumours
  Dr M Yuneva
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Mariia Yuneva’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Altered metabolism is one of the hallmarks of tumorigenesis (1).
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.

  Dr F Siebzehnrubl, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is the most common and most lethal adult brain cancer. High patient mortality is partly attributed to glioblastoma cancer stem cells causing recurrence of therapy-resistant tumours.
