  Application of data science to inherited genetic variants of apoptosis genes and susceptibility to breast cancer
  Prof A Cox, Dr K Walters
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The identification of the breast and ovarian cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 two decades ago has resulted in both improved patient risk assessment, and the use of PARP-inhibitors for treatment.
  An intelligent scheme to identify novel drug targets through analysing the DNA repairome in drug resistant cancer?
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Prof C Parris
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.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
  The Role of Fusion Genes Tumourigenesis
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Salivary gland tumours are uncommon but have a varied and complex pattern of histopathological features.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Targeting addiction to a breast cancer metastasis survival pathway by inhibition of RAN GTPase
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr S Betmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic cancer is a major global health burden. Each year, eleven million new cases of cancer are diagnosed worldwide, including 5 million cases in industrialized countries.
  Understanding the biology of male breast cancer to identify more precise ways to inform clinical decision making for personalised treatment strategies.
  Prof V Speirs, Dr R Abu Eid
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer (BC) affects both genders but remains understudied in men. This is a concern; research from our and other laboratories show a rise in the number of men receiving a breast cancer diagnosis over the last 3 decades.
