  Understanding the mechanisms of neuroendocrine tumour response to radionuclide therapy
  Prof R Hicks, Assoc Prof C Cullinane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) represent a heterogeneous group of tumours that arise in specialized cells found throughout the body.
  FLASH VHEE radiotherapy: a potential new paradigm in cancer treatment
  Prof R M. Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FLASH-RT entails delivering a high dose over a sub-second timescale and exploratory experiments indicate cancerous regions suffer lethal damage whereas healthy tissues show little impairment.
  FLASH VHEE Radiotherapy: A Potential New Paradigm in Cancer Treatment
  Dr M Merchant, Dr S Sheehy, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Location. The successful applicant will have the opportunity of spending 2 years at the University of Manchester and one year at the University of Melbourne (Australia) –anticipated start 9/2020.
  Repairing DNA Damage in Response to BRAF Mutation
  Dr C McCabe, Prof G Stewart
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are the leading thyroid cancer research group in the UK; we work on other neoplasias as well, including breast and head and neck etc.
  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis
  Dr Y Feng, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanisms that modulate the pre-neoplastic stage of tumourigenesis in vivo are largely unknown due to the lack of suitable animal models.
  Exosomes in oncolytic virotherapy
  Prof L Seymour, Dr K Fisher
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Oncolytic viruses promise new opportunities for targeted cancer therapy, but spread of viruses through solid tumour masses is often limited.
  Developing the evidence for active intervention to support smoking cessation in cardiovascular disease
  Dr J Hartmann-Boyce, Dr N Lindson, Prof P Aveyard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

18% of people with incident heart disease smoke tobacco and less than half manage to stop. Clinicians intervene actively to support cessation for a small minority, when we know that continued smoking is a matter of addiction, not choice, for most of this group.
  Modelling stem cell fate and alterations due to mutations
  Dr E Morrissey
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group uses a combination of deep learning, stochastic models and Bayesian modelling to study questions relating to stem cell fate dynamics and how mutations in stem cells alter their normal behaviour, become fixed and accumulate in the tissue eventually leading to cancer.
  Homologous recombination: when, where and how does it act?
  Dr F Esashi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genomic DNA is constantly challenged by numerous environmental stresses, such as radiation and genotoxic drugs, as well as those arising from normal processes of cell growth, including DNA replication and transcription.
