  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  The functional characterization of the tumour suppressor gene CSMD1 in breast cancer
  Dr S Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

CUB and Sushi multiple domains protein 1 (CSMD1) maps to 8p23, a region deleted in many cancers including breast cancer. Our previous work has established that CSMD1 is an independent prognostic marker in ductal breast cancer, with reduced expression associated with high tumour grade and poor survival1.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.
  Identification of key determinants affecting the quality of human Cancer specific cytotoxic T cells
  Prof T Dong
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective of my group’s research is to focus on the functional aspects of the antigen specific T cells and study the factors affecting Cytotoxic T cells in controlling cancer development.

  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.
  Elucidation of novel therapy targets for B-cell malignancies
  Dr M Smida
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Therapy of B-cell lymphomas and B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia is based predominantly on CD20 monoclonal antibodies and/or on three approved targeted drugs.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
