  Developing, piloting and evaluating a theoretical-based intervention to support endocrine therapy medication taking behaviour in women with stage I-III breast cancer
  Prof K Bennett, Dr C Cahir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Almost 3,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually in Ireland. In women with hormone-responsive early breast cancer, 5-10 years of endocrine therapy is recommended to prevent breast cancer recurrence and mortality, with a reduction in cancer recurrence of up to 50%.
  Dynamic interplay of cell shape and tumour evolution
  Dr F Spill, Prof I Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour cells are long known to appear in vastly diverse shapes, both across patients and within a single tumour. This is in stark contrast to the regularity of cell shapes of healthy epithelial tissues from which most tumours originate.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Do rural-dwellers experience cancer symptoms differently? A mixed methods PhD project using the USEFUL a community-based cohort assessing prevalence and response to potential cancer symptoms)

Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Scottish people living further from key healthcare facilities have less chance of prompt cancer diagnosis and poorer cancer survival than those living closer-by[1].
  Molecular modelling of novel anti-cancer molecules targeting Mortalin-p53 interaction

Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mortalin is a highly conserved member of the heat shock 70 family which, when over-expressed, plays a pivotal role in dysregulating signal pathways implicated in carcinogenesis.
