  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.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie funded COFUND Doctoral Programme entitled MemTrain (Cell Membranes in Industrial Processes Training
  Dr A Goddard
Application Deadline: 24 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Biosciences at Aston University has been awarded the EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie funded COFUND Doctoral Programme entitled MemTrain (Cell Membranes in Industrial Processes Training).
  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Single Molecule studies to characterise the spatial and temporal mechanisms of the HIV-1 fusion reaction
  Research Group: School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences
  Dr S Padilla Parra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To start. Start date negotiable. School. School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences. Study mode. Full time. Supervisor. Dr Sergi Padilla Parra.
  Precision genetics to improve Asthma prediction, diagnosis and treatment in children
  Dr J O'Sullivan, Dr T Fadason
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is a prevalent respiratory condition in children and adults globally, with the prevalence in NZ among the highest in the developed world.
  Oxidative protein folding of industrially and pharmaceutically important recombinant proteins
  Dr H Lu, Dr A Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidative protein folding is an important process for the function of many proteins, which includes both folding and formation of native disulphide bonds.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Investigating the requirements of pro-inflammatory signaling in skin and head & neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are amongst the most common cancer types afflicting man. SCCs most frequently arise from stratified squamous epithelia such as the epidermis or the mucosae of the head and neck.
  Mechanisms of regulating gene expression via selective mRNA transport
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical step in the gene expression pathway that is altered in cancer is nuclear export of mRNA. We have demonstrated that mRNA export is not constitutive, but highly selective and can regulate distinct biological processes through poorly understood mechanisms.
  Unravelling the oncogenic activities of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Therapeutic potential of microRNAs in medullary thyroid carcinoma
  Prof G. Hutvagner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Project. Medullary thyroid cancer is a rare, aggressive neuroendocrine tumour. Treatment of MTC poses a major challenge due to its propensity of early metastasis and no available adjuvant systemic treatment options.
  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
