  Clonal and cell state heterogeneity in breast cancer xenografts
  Prof C Caldas
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Members of the Caldas research team have developed a biobank of patient-derived breast cancer xenografts (Bruna et al, Cell 2016) that represent the inter- and intra-tumour heterogeneity of human breast cancers (Curtis et al, Nature 2012; Pereira et al, Nat Commun 2016; Rueda et al, Nature 2019).
  Predicting tuber dry matter concentration in potato
  Dr M Stalham, Prof H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Mark Stalham (NIAB CUF), Prof. Howard Griffiths (University of Cambridge). The dry matter concentration of potato tubers is an important quality attribute, particularly for the production of crisps and french fries but also for fresh produce.
  NSIRC243 Scaling modelling for annulus environments.
  Miss M Mitzithra, Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

NSIRC243. PhD Studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd) - Scaling Modelling for annulus environments. Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC).
  Disintegration of protein clearance pathways during ageing: a parallel proteomics approach
  Dr Rahul S Samant
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accumulation of misfolded or otherwise non-native proteins in the cell is linked to an array of ageing-related disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases and cancers1.
  Exploring the role of the Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Receptor- Type F (PTPRF) in focal adhesion dynamics
  Dr H Sharpe
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dynamic and reversible phosphorylation of tyrosine residues is a key feature of intercellular communication. Through the regulated activities of kinases and phosphatases, cells are primed to respond to changes in their environment.
  Signalling to the Code: Understanding the biochemical regulation of DNA methylation in stem cells
  Dr M Christophorou
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do our cells, all of which have exactly the same set of genes, adopt such different fates, morphologies and functions? How do cells then respond to…
