  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).
  Funded Opportunities available within the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre has a fully-funded innovative MRes + PhD programme, designed to give students a broad understanding of both the basic biology and the clinical management of the whole spectrum of malignant disease.
  In situ Immune Dynamics through Breast Cancer Progression and Treatment
  Dr R Ali
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent trials show that some breast cancer patients benefit from treatment with immunotherapies. Immune cells infiltrating breast tumours are also established prognostic factors in some breast cancer subtypes.
  Early detection of clinically-relevant mutational signatures
  Research Group: Dr Serena Nik-Zainal
  Dr S Nik-Zainal
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutational signatures in human cancers are the final outcome of combinations of DNA damage and DNA repair processes.
  Uncovering the (epi)Genomic regulation of cancer forming processes using integrative computational genomics and deep learning approaches
  Research Group: Dr Shamith Samarajiwa
  Dr S Samarajiwa
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations in oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes, copy number changes and other genetic aberrations, together with anomalous epigenomic modifications all conspire to alter gene expression programmes, perturb normal cellular processes and promote tumour formation.
  Oncogene-induced reprogramming of heterotypic cellular interactions
  Research Group: Dr Alessandro Esposito
  Dr A Esposito, Dr J Shields
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accumulation of mutations during the development of cancer subverts normal cell-to-cell communication and cellular decisions.
  Clonal dynamics of a metastatic benign cancer
  Research Group: Dr Ben Hall
  Dr B Hall
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dermal cylindroma is a rare inherited disease of multiple benign, disfiguring tumors caused by inherited mutations in the gene CYLD.
  Origins and fate of clonal expansions of cancer driver in human colon
  Dr D Winton
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The non-transformed colonic epithelium acquires significant mutational burden with age, including many cancer drivers.
  Non-invasive imaging of the tumour microenvironment during radiotherapy response.
  Dr SE Bohndiek
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Optoacoustic imaging is an emerging clinical technology that combines the high contrast of optical imaging with the spatial resolution of ultrasound imaging.
  Identifying genomic and epigenetic factors in different subtypes of pancreatic cancer
  Prof J Carroll
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite recent advances in the treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the median survival remains. Epigenetic pathway alterations are an emerging mechanism for PDA progression.
