  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
  Analysis of the role of Hypoxia Inducibe Factor pathway in radioprotection
  Dr F Van Eeden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) is highly important in human health and disease, as is testified by the 2019 Nobel prize for Medicine or Physiology.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Understanding the role of DRAM in infection and autophagy-related disease
  Dr J King, Dr P Elks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular degradation by lysosomes is important in a wide range of diseases. The capture and degradation of cytoplasmic components by autophagy allows tumour cells to survive starvation and neurons to remove the protein aggregates associated with neurodegeneration.
  Watching cancer metastasise live and investigating the underlying mechanisms
  Dr K Campbell, Dr M J P Simons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer metastasis accounts for around 90% of cancer deaths. While the survival rate has been improved over the years through early diagnosis, limited progress has been made in the targeting of metastasis.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Structural insights into ligand binding and channel gating in ATP-gated P2X7 receptor
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X7 receptor, belonging to the ATP-gated ion channel P2X receptor family, exhibits distinct functional and pharmacological properties that are crucial for its role in innate immunity and inflammatory diseases and cancers (Jiang et al., 2013; Caseley et al., 2014; Roger et al., 2014; Wei et al., 2018).
