  Novel bone-targeted therapy for treatment against dormant myeloma cells
  Dr M Lawson, Dr A Chantry
Application Deadline: 15 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of differentiated B-lymphocytes (plasma cells) that grow in the bone marrow. Despite the development and use of more effective drugs in the treatment of myeloma it remains an incurable disease, given that current treatment regimens are not able to eradicate all tumour cells.
  Novel niclosamide-bisphosphonate vectors as bone-targeted therapy for multiple myeloma
  Dr M Lawson, Dr A Chantry
Application Deadline: 15 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloma remains an incurable cancer despite improvements in survival outcomes over the last few years, due to the development of better therapies.

The group has published on small molecules with specificity towards hypoxic cells associated with solid tumours, reductase enzymes over-expressed in cancer, as well as, aziridines that induce hypersensitivity from Fanconi anaemia cells and those carrying mutations in the BRCA (Breast Cancer Susceptibility) genes.
  Genomic determinants of long-term survival in ovarian cancer
  Research Group: Cancer Genetics & Genomics Laboratory
  Prof D. Bowtell, Dr D Garsed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease in which only ~30% of women survive 5 years or more. Despite a poor prognosis, a subset of patients are highly responsive to chemotherapy, and some become long-term survivors (>10 years survival).
  Investigating new epigenetic regulators of targeted cancer therapy
  Dr M Higgs, Prof D Fennell
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deficiencies in the cellular response to DNA damage are intimately linked with tumour development, but also provide an opportunity to selectively eliminate tumour cells using targeted therapy.
