  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).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Fibroblast Heterogeneity in Pancreatic Cancer
  Dr G Biffi
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In pancreatic cancer, cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) have been shown to promote tumour growth, chemotherapy resistance and immunosuppression by secreting ligands and extracellular matrix proteins.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
