  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  Oncogenic reprogramming of immune cells, a novel mechanism of drug-resistance.
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  (A*STAR) The role of desmosome regulation in development, wound healing and cancer
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof D R Garrod
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of cell movement is a key factor in human development and disease. Desmosomes are intercellular junctions that give strength to normal tissues by binding their cells tightly together.
  Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) as a novel cancer biomarker and target for chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Coussons, Dr C Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Validation of novel biomarkers for improved risk stratification and therapy for the paediatric cancer neuroblastoma
  Dr V See, Dr A Herrmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuroblastoma is the second most common cancer in childhood but still has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood malignancies.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Anti-cancer activities of dietary phytochemicals (BaoY-PshezhetskiyDU19SF)
  Dr Y Bao, Prof D Pshezhetskiy
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epidemiological studies show that dietary phytochemicals such as isothiocyanates (ITCs) derived from cruciferous vegetables can decrease the risk of many types of cancer.
  Chemopreventive and therapeutic activity of combined complex nanoparticles with paclitaxel and sulforaphane for breast cancer (BaoU20MEDSF)
  Dr Y Bao, Prof D Pshezhetskiy
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Paclitaxel chemotherapy is offered as part of both first and second line regimens for locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
  Enhancing Oncolytic Virus-induced Immunotherapy using Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
  Dr F Errington-Mais, Dr MA Volpato
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) having the worst prognosis, highest death rate and lowest overall survival.
  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.
  The role of the microenvironment in regulating breast cancer metastatic colonisation
  Dr R Clarke, Dr Ciara O'Brien, Dr R Eyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The metastatic spread of breast cancer cells and their colonisation of important organs is the cause of death in 95% of breast cancer.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  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.
  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.
