  Quantitative biology of cell fate and tissue dynamics: Modelling stem cell fate and alterations due to mutations
  Dr E Morrissey
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group uses a combination of deep learning, stochastic models and Bayesian modelling to study questions relating to stem cell fate dynamics and how mutations in stem cells alter their normal behaviour, become fixed and accumulate in the tissue eventually leading to cancer.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  Searching for biomarkers of pre-cancer lesions associated with pancreas cancer
  Prof K M Ryan
Application Deadline: 26 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a cancer that usually presents as an advanced disease. At the point of diagnosis, 50% of patients already have metastatic lesions and a further 35% have locally advanced disease.
  Microenvironmental interactions and regulation of their crosstalk in malignant B-cells by transcription factors
  Prof M Mráz
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a motivated PhD student that would like to work on the following project funded by the ERC (European Research Council) Starting grant.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Hematopoietic Stem Cell Genetics: Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Prof Claus Nerlov, Dr P Vyas
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using single cell biology and genetics to understand how hematopoietic stem cells normally sustain blood formation, and how this process is altered during ageing and when leukemia develops.
  Extracellular and intracellular NAMPT as pharmacological targets in cancer and inflammatory disorders
  Dr A Grolla
Application Deadline: 25 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laboratory of Armando Genazzani tentatively offers a Ph.D. position for non-Italian residents starting from November 2019 on “Extracellular and intracellular NAMPT as pharmacological targets in cancer and inflammatory disorders”.
