  PhD: Fluorescence imaging, diagnosis, and photodynamic therapy for brain tumours (Laser Research and Therapy Fund) - University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive malignant brain tumour with a median survival for adults of only 11 – 15 months. Published studies have shown that prognosis can be improved if near-complete removal of the tumour can be achieved in surgery.

  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  Single cell approaches to understanding gliomatosis cerebri
  Dr C Jones, Prof J Shipley
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gliomatosis cerebri (GC) is a rare brain tumour that mostly affects children and young adults. Unlike other brain tumours, little is known about this type of cancer, and survival is very poor, with most patients succumbing to their disease within 18 months of diagnosis.

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.

  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.
