  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of anti-cancer agents and biomarkers that target intrinsically disordered regions of transcription factors and protein kinases
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

The controlled manipulation of transcription factors, protein kinases and protein phosphatases is central to improving our understanding of cellular processes and, importantly, in the development of next-generation therapeutics for a variety of cancers.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.

Background. Of the ~1,600 human TF genes, up to ~25% (~400 genes) are expected to be haploinsufficient with a plethora of them leading to developmental disorders1, underlining that transcription factor (TF) abundance (dosage) plays a major role during cell and tissue specification.
